What I have been doing

Recommended Posts

I am sorry I have not been very active on the forum lately I have been busy with many things. I have finally taken the time with the weather today to make some posts, I uploaded a few pictures of the projects I have done and I am working on. some i have not posted as I forgot to take pictures of is a sign decorative sign and I also made a hobbit style pipe made from oak although it is rather plain I do like the way it turned out. I have also been asked to make some shelving for paws4vets to help them organize the stuff for the dogs at the training center. Even though I am not always posting I am always looking at the wonderful wood working that is being posted and believe that all of you are very talented and creative and I enjoy seeing all of your efforts.This site is such a inspirational resource and I just wanted to let all of you know that through this creativity you have helped me substantially with the effects of my PTSD and depression, by not only inspiring by your creativity but also by helping me with a hobby that calms my mind. Thank you so much for everything you do daily and all of your posting. I wanted to let you to know that even though this is a site to cultivate woodworking and creative ideas that though this site I have found an outlet and a focus that has helped with a serious depression and PTSD. SO thank you!!!!

It's good to hear from you Lissa. As lew said, it's us that should be thanking you. So, a BIG THANK YOU!!


How's the shop coming? As you know, it's never actually done.


I liked the projects you posted. The TV stand from pallet wood is great. Your Green Man is really nice, too. Nice work.


Don't be a stranger. Please post some more of your work and, we'd all like to see more of the shop.

2014011909.43.51.jpg?width=721ok I know its not much to look at right now but here is the shop. its about 14x14 not including overhang i made that for my lawnmower and such. the concrete pad was from a previous "ruined shed that was here in 98 when we moved in. we had to tear it down because the roof was falling in and it was riddled with termites. I really can not wait till its all done.

Thanks so much for your kind words Lissa. Sometimes we wonder if anyone is reading or getting any inspiration for the the items we post. Glad you are enjoying and thanks for speaking up. Glad you are better and keep checking in.

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.
