My Woodworking Interests
My interests are as varied as woodworking is. But if nailed down to a specific area, I'd have to say I love chairs, all kinds of chairs, and building them is very fulfilling. I also enjoy some case work now and then, and my latest interest is in home made hand tools. Most of all, I am just happy to be here, and learning, sharing, and collaborating with our woodworkers.
I would like to share some of the woodworkers who have influenced me in many ways.
- Firstly, my dad. He planted the seed in me for woodworking when I was around 10 years old, he and I built many things in his little ol shop full of Craftsman and Home Craft tools and machinery. He's still alive and kicking today at the age of 83, and he's building crafts and things to this day!
- Tage Frid
- Hans Wegner
- Charles Buchanan
- Kerry Pierce
- David Finck
- Hal Taylor
- Roy Underhill of course!
Some of my favorite woodworking genres.
- Danish modern
- American colonial
- Folk art
Thanks for checking my profile out!
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.
