  3. I love the space, nice warm feel to it, I could work there, chairs, chairs, chairs. Perfect size shop!

    Volunteers Website

    I think of if Woodie kept it local for now, he could vet personally, interviews etc. Then as his organization starts rolling along, he'll grow with it, and usually the answers appear over time. Not knowing too much about Woodies goals at this point, I think staying local in his county would be a great first step, that way he could be more hands on with the interaction and pairing.

    Volunteers Website

    Tell me how you think your website would be laid out Woodie, sell me your idea, more information please! I want to hear how the people would come together on your website, and how you would match up the recipients to the donor, honestly, at first I would start local, then branch out nationally as your energies and time permit, this is a huge undertaking for you, it's not just a matter of firing up a website, and folks connecting, there will be a whole lot of facilitating on your part.

    Volunteers Website

    Woodie, first off, what a fantastic idea! So, you asked about costs to build a website, a whole bunch! Designers are not cheap, you could be in it for a few grand or more. But, fortunately for us, there are many ways you can build a website with little costs, and you could do it yourself with just a little gumption and willingness to learn. It really is relatively easy to build, today there are many plug n play platforms, from paid, to open source. Woodie, tell me this, would this be to help folks in your own local area?

    Patriot Woodworker 2018 Community Raffle Fundraiser

    Herb, I believe you are referring to the Gold Star Widow Merlo Family Christmas Fundraiser, we had a goal of 2000.00 for that one. I did a little checking Herb, here was last years Community Fundraiser, with a goal of 1000.00. That being said, don't stop at 1000 ya'll! We use the extra funds for many things, we can always help other woodworkers, who are disabled, and veteran, as we have in the past, to acquire tools and machinery and supplies they could not otherwise afford, we can always use the extra funding!

    Unread Content Page Choices

    Gene, it does not apply to your general forum surfing, only when you access the content from your stream. The stream is a customized snapshot that you can use instead of having to go through the forums to hunt and peck. Access the content strictly through your stream and all your saved features will work. I now see the confusion.

      You bet Shane, if you have any questions for us, don't hesitate to ask, make yourself at home, surf our forums, and get to know the folks, they are full of knowledge and artistry. See you on the board!

    Your fine Gene. Just go ahead and create a custom stream, you can't break anything. And see what new options will appear. Play away!

    A stream is a flow of information. It won't save automatically because you are creating a custom stream different than the default.

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.
