Hi my name is Matthew and recent started to pick up woodworking. I’ve done small projects off and on for years but never tried to really go that deep into it because of deployments and military life. But now I have the time to really get into it.  Woodturning is extremely brand new to me. Just picked up my first lathe maybe 2 or 3 months ago. I have two kids and a wife that thinks I’m only slightly off my rocker when it comes to this hobby. Was in the army for 8 years and then went into the oil afterwards. Other then that nothing else super interesting about me.

Hi and welcome, appreciate your service and thank you. I’m fairly new to WW’ing, and the forum. Great bunch of people here, and if they don’t know it, it’s unknown.

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.
