  1. Welcome John to The Patriot Woodworker!

  2. Thanks for the great topic Lew. So, who made that vessel, the dragon one? I like it!

      Almost exactly like this. Roy Underhill has one, been looking for those plans. The one you show appears to the Roy model.

      Promises to be a interesting build.  For the moment I will watch okay?  I have two lathes and several lifetimes of projects to get done.  This ain't on my list.   :throbbinghead:

  4. I am going to have to hunt this down and get one, I love it. Good morning all, before I head off to work for the day, just thought I'd drop in and spread some dark humor.
  5. A blog from a woodworker who wants to leave something behind, simple as that.
  6. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks!  Theme News As many of you know by now, our theme or appearance looks quite different right now, what you are seeing is the default theme for our software without customization. Since our upgrade and after upgrading the custom theme to follow along, we were experiencing errors being thrown with each page visit by users of our community, creating a strain on our network. I am working on this issue within my spare time, unfortunately now that the new work week has begun we are more than likely going to have to use this default theme until the weekend comes along again and I can sit down and dig in. Thank you all for your patience.

  7. I may have to do a follow up series for the early wounded warriors we helped build a shop for, a "Where are they now" series, so you all can see what they are up too. I keep in touch with them, to this day.
  8. I am friends with Mark Wilson on Facebook, many of you may remember that Mark was one of the very first wounded veterans we helped raise a shop, acquire the tools and machinery he needed to work the wood, and our sponsors really came to the table to outfit his shop, he is a blind woodworker, injury received by shotgun blast to his face and blinded. My friend Mark posted this on Facebook, I replied: Amen amen amen my brother Mark! Just so ya'll know, he's doing fine, really well. Still working the wood, and going on trips all over the USA and participating in Wounded Warrior Games and Competitions. Our friend Mark on the table saw at the Chicago Heinz Center for the Blind Rehabilitation clinic. I took a break from working on some issues for our community here, while plugging away at those issues, I remembered our friend Mark Wilson, and he touched many hearts here. Service animals, fully functional folks traveling with those service animals, as psychological service pets, really chaps my hide, you all know the ones I am talking about, and then there's Mark Wilson.

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.
