Strawberry Orange Banana Lime Leaf Slate Sky Blueberry Grape Watermelon Chocolate Marble


Scroll sawn from all pine, this project was displayed out front of my camp up north PA. Many come to look at it because they don't see much of this there. The lettering is hand carved as well as the scroll. Scroll sawn eagle with flame background. I used spray paints and spar varnish for outdoors. Approx size 12"x12".

All the work you've been putting up here I have really enjoyed Dale, thanks so much for taking the time to upload it all. You are doing some amazing work, and the production! How often do you crank these out, and how long do these take to make? Thanks for sharing Dale!

Courtland thank you for the comment! For some reason I have been goin at an unbelievable pace. Some only take a few hrs ex... the hunting dog was like just under an hour. Then the more detail like the elegant cross is 25 hrs. I have tweeked many projects due to fact they look plain so I add a bit to them. I try to put the hours up on them if I remember lol. The project to look for in the future is my battle buddy scene I have drawn up from our tour in afghanistan. Its ready to be put on wood. I am guessing I will have hundreds of hours on it because of detail. I will try to enter it in a competition around August. I just bought a porter cable scroll saw earlier this year. I seen many many bad reviews so I bought it. It apparently is doing ok because all the projects I'm posting are from it. I also do furniture .... chain saw millilng carving and other wood working. I had been in construction before I joined the service. Since I'm out and wounded I have been hiding recluse and doing my best at projects like this. Keep checkin because ill have tons more. I was on here but my account had problems so I contacted admin and we are up and running again.

Well we sure are happy you came back to us Dale.

I thank you for your service and sacrifice, and I do hope and pray that your work is finding you some peace in life, you sound pretty good right now and I hope that is a reflection of how you feel in real time. Remember you can come back here anytime and just chat, and let the world know how you are feeling, down, up, it don't matter, we can handle it. We have a forum called "The Veterans Corner" here on The Patriot Woodworker, feel free to chime in there, vent, or what have you. We are a small group, but we have heart!

I'd really like to see your chainsaw carvings and furnishings!

You are very welcome Courtland. Some ppl don't know how lucky they are as well as I am. I was talking to Ron Dudleston on the phone the other day and we agreed exactly on that. I'm lucky to be alive after all that had happened. My story would buckle a person as it has in the past. After coming home I realized how cruel the world can be. Right now the army is playing games as I am hurt and they are trying to pull me back again.my group of the 4th infantry division of Ft Carson Colorado is on the ground with isis as we speak. I made the surge in 09/10 for Laden. Not to mention we put time in on Bergdahl as well. It was very bad where I was and intense. Home was no better when I got back.I'm sure I could write a book and get a high reading capacity..... but I'd rather wood work lol. I will post more pics .... keep looking. I'm fairly new to chainsaw carving but gaining ground quick on that too. I will post some of that too! Thank you for the comment! Its nice to see because the ppl where I'm at really don't care and are truley mean with bad intent.

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!


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.


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.



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.
