Hello, my name is John Morris, founder and creator of The Patriot Woodworker and I am very glad to have you aboard with us! Please sit back and enjoy our forum and community.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me here.
I look forward to seeing you on our forum, please share your work and life experiences with the rest of our community, when we all participate on our forum, we are all better woodworkers because of it!
Thank you for joining us.
I have been woodworking for over 40 years in one way or another. My father taught me initially from his little one car garage slot in a neighbors home that he leased out. We built many things from recycled lumber, so I guess you could say we were building from recycled lumber in the late 70's before it became the "Green thing to do". We would scour our alleys for pallets, tree trimmings, and anything made from wood and just make cool stuff.
Woodworking is my first love in the arts and trades, but I am a land surveyor by day. I am a husband, a dad of 3, and I am very happy to be here at The Patriot Woodworker, thanks for visiting my profile.
As in most families, music is a pretty big deal in our home, and in our workshop, if you were to walk into my shop at any given time that I am in there, you'd be sure to hear something similar to this bellowing out from my speakers.
Below is my family, and we welcome you here to our community.
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
