The first known man to use the axe were Homo ergastar. These axes had no shaft, or any means to hold an axe other than by the axe head itself.

    Carving A SW Desert Cane

    I love this, great find Dave! Watched it completely through, an American treasure, and a fine display of American Folk Art. A man carving a stick, influenced by his local surroundings in nature. I am in awe of the patience a person must possess to create this. I have a question, why the glue on the eyes and ears early on in the process?
  5. OEF and OIF, no place to wade! On mission in Honduras for a few months, one of the standout memories I have was wading into a river, stripped down and swimming up current with eyes open, the water was completely clear, and fresh, drinking water as I swam. And the hillsides were beautiful, dotted with Honduran regular Army watching out for us, or watching us.
  6. Recorded at Sagnlandet Lejre, Historical Archaeological Research and Communication Center, Denmark, August 2012 I was surfing around and found this wonderfully delightful snippet of a short film about 4 minutes long, showing how the makers of textiles performed their work before machines, and how Danish artisans, and I am sure others the world over, create textiles by hand today. Thank you Lissa Hall. Enjoy
  7. We have two Army Medics among us. I just thought you would like to know each other, and shake hands. @Lissa Hall, meet @MaDeuce And thank you both for your service.

    Death from Fractal Burnng

    Guys, is this process safe(r) if you are using the kits that are professionally manufactured? Such as this one: https://conestogaworks.com/woodburners.html And does Carl Jacobson still use the process today? Just genuinely curious is all, not trying to play Devils Advocate or anything. Thanks.

    This is my SPOT!!!

    I saw it, I loved it. Curious what his MOS is, to have the canine in this instance, or if the dog adopted him locally. Looks too healthy to be an In-Country dog
  12. Excellent perspective Cal, thanks!
  13. I think Ron, because education was not taken for granted in those days, they felt pretty special showing up to college, thus shirt and tie, I think. These days a college education is more of an entitlement than a privilege.

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.
