    Absolutely fantastic, Al.. Way beyond my capabilities. Don't give up. Ever.. I like the glass enclosure idea. Keep posting images as you go. We like progress status images. Larry

    Sorry John1. Read it the wrong way. Didn't know your intent. Larry Jenkins

    WIN 10 and XP are not even in the same world. Win 10 is not user friendly anymore. Question still stands.. Any way to improve XP? In simple terms an 86 year old can understand? Thank you! Larry Jenkins

    Wednesday Fast Finds

    Al.. I have a very old large steel square. 2' x 3'. (Maybe smaller.. Too lazy to look.) Besides a fine power wire wheel, what do you use to make 'em shiny again? Larry Jenkins (Niagara?)

    No.. But I still use XP for all my Home design drawings. Wish there were a way to speed it up. I also have WIN 10. Any suggestions to improve XP most welcome. Larry Jenkins

    Discovered this quite by accident today..

    I live in the dark age.
  8. I made two new glass covers from Red Oak scrap today. I thought I had some 150 sandpaper to smooth out the surface. Could not find any. Here's the discovery.. I an redoing a half bath and went to the store and bought some of the screen that is used on a pole to sand drywall mud. Why not? Picked up a piece of the sanding screen and used it to finish sand the lids. I was amazed at how easy the screen cut and how smooth the surface was. Holey, so easy to clean. Try it! Larry Jenkins

    Woodworker II saw blade

    Over a hundred busks a pop. Had one sharpened by them a long time ago. Nice job.

    Carnauba wax is the hardest organic wax known to man. It grows as a powder on the leaves of the Carnauba tress in Brazil. It is then processed into 100% Carnauba wax, both paste and liquid, known for it's deep shine and longevity. TreWax manufactures probably the finest grade known. That is all I use while "finishing the finish." No, I did not open the long link above. Larry Jenkins
  11. And, if you like using stainless steel screws, have a look at "Stainless Town." I used them wherever I could when I restored my last Model A. Very reasonable prices and fast, low cost shipping.

    Hey Al.. What did they do back then when the Titanic went down due to bad steel?

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.
