Todd, thanks for the kind comments, this was my first dive into chair making and I absolutely loved it. I am hooked on chairs, I have built two other sculpted chairs since this first one, and I have gone down the chair path, not necessarily sculpted rockers but chairs in general. Family has become a main focus in my life lately with oldest girl heading off to college in the fall, and my other two kids with their activities have demanded much of my time lately. At this moment I am mainly relegated to reading about chairs and building them, but I am getting ready to soon fire up the shop for some more chair making, I am excited about the prospect. In the interim I have been keeping my shop occupied with smaller projects for friends and family, but the chairs do call my name!

And there ya go! It was a huge learning experience for me, I cannot even begin to explain the amount of knowledge I gained with just this one project. Been woodworking since I was 12 years old with Dad and in the trades since a young adult, this project did a whole lot for me in the short three months worth of weekends it took for me to build it. There are so many aspects to it, and phases, it touches on virtually every phase of fine woodworking in someway or another. It's a great project for anyone.

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.
