Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

The Management

Upload your arts and crafts here, smaller projects such as boxes and picture frames are more then welcome!

  3. Charles Schmitz Updated

    Shadow box for veterans of WWll sub vets of New Paltz NY. A Wreath as gift from a member of parliament presented to the U.S. submarine veterans of WWll. My father is a member and asked me if I could do this for them and could not be happier to do so. My father started off on the old diesel subs then went to the nuclear subs later and made it to chief missal tech and retired after 20 plus years. He also was sent to Great Britain to help train with nuclear tech.

  13. Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case Updated

    I had a customer bring an old gutted clock case from Yugoslavia that belonged to his grandma. He wanted the case converted into a jewelry case for his wife. He did not really have any ideas, so he told me to come up with something, and just do it, so I did!
     
    The old clock case is oak, and it has a rounded bezel glass in the top middle of the door, I was very nervous having this around, if it broke, there would be no replacement for it.
     
    The project was fun, and he and his wife were very happy.

  19. The Three Soldiers Updated

    This was a copper colored model kit which I assembled and then painted.

    I used 7-8 different shades of green acrylic paint to add a realistic color to it.

    It was also a entrant in the 2015 V A Art Fair here at the Hines V A Hospital and won 1st Place in it's category, Model kits.

    Though I have only seen photo's of the real statue I hope that I have done justice to it.

    For all those "that gave that gave their last full measure"

    Don't forget them on Memorial Day go somewhere near you and pay your respects.

    Freedom is NOT free.

  20. Veterans Tribute Clock Updated

    This is based upon a simple clock kit that I received from H H V a veterans service org.
    The First kit I completed is made of Pine and a 1/16"Luan plywood it turned out very good and I gave it to my Son at Christmas for his new home office.
    This one I "threw out" all the wood parts and used oak and 1/4" oak plywood it is also larger than the kit so I added my own touches.

    I added the images and assembled it barley in time for the VA Art Fair here @ Hines VA Hospital. I was putting the Plexi. front on the night before I had to turn it in for the completion.

    It did win 3rd place in the wood working category, But you wait till next year I have bigger and better things planned.

    And as we all now space is not important I build my projects in My apartment in a second bedroom that serves as workshop and Office it is only 10x12'where my tools are limited to tabletop units, folding table saw etc. I till now have done all the fitting and sanding by hand. I have since finishing this purchased a portable belt sander 4x36' and 8" drill press and got a "experienced" band saw from a friend it will help the next projects.

    So get to cutting and let the chips fly.

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.
