A day early and just a short one this week, sorry.

 

Please, let us all extend our sympathy to @John Moody. His Mom passed away Tuesday. I know your prayers will be appreciated.

 

@Ron Altier Has built some beautiful display stands for some of his ornaments.

Please go to Ron's post and see what others have had to say-

 

 

 

 

@Smallpatch has added awesome detail to the teapots he is building.

Check out his continued progress-

 

 

 

 

 

@Grandpadave52 posted a link to The Woodworker's Journal newsletter. The newsletter is asking for responses to interest in a new free woodturning newsletter. If they receive enough positive responses , we might have another resource for turning information. If you think you might be interested, here's the link-

Speaking of woodturning resources, the Woodworkers Guild of America is offering a set of 3 DVDs on woodturning techniques by George Vondrisk. I have not seen these videos so I cannot say how much information they might offer. You can see more at their website- https://www.wwgoa.com/product/wood-turning-techniques-3-dvd-set/#utm_source=WWGOA&utm_medium=email&utm_term=70OFF&utm_content=C12701&vscid=C12701

 

 

Patriot member @Gene Howe alerted me to an article in the most recent Popular Woodworking e-magazine. Gene said the article was about using a toilet plunger as a jam chuck. I do not subscribe to Popular Woodworking and couldn't locate the article online. If you subscribe to the magazine, check out the article it might just be something you can use.

 

 

Safe turning

Thanks Lew for the weekly post & nod...

I signed up even though I don't turn. If it's only half as interesting with projects and information as this site then it will be good.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
