I hate introducing myself, but here it goes 

 

I served in the Army as a medic (pounded sand in OIF I). Currently only able to do pyrography (lack of tools to do carpentry). I learned growing up (because my dad always bought fixer-up houses). 

 

I don't know what else to say. Currently I do patriotic and pagan wood burning. Eventually I want to do much more.

 

Anything else? Ask questions and I'll answer.

Welcome to the PWW forum. Please explore the site and enjoy.

Pyrography is an interest to many of the members here. Your expertise will be welcome. We'd really be interested in seeing your work. We like pictures.

Thank you! 

 

I say it often. I swear my leadership team does more than me. They tell me when to be where.

Its a rounded (like a spoon) tool used with a pyrography machine that you use for shading in areas.

I'm sure it could be used for that. Pyrography tools aren't much different than a soldering iron. These simply come in different size/shape tips that can be used for different effects on wood.

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.
