Ralph, I think that making your furniture old school is wonderful.Â I would like to get into using more hand tools on some projects.Â My great grandfather was a carpenter and I have his tool box which is full of old hand planes.Â Hollows and rounds along with some other profile planes.Â I want to sharpen them up for some use someday. I appriciate the info on the arts and crafts furniture methods. Adam
Hello Ralph, Congratulations on the possible commission.Â How do you get customers so far away?Â Shipping has got to be pretty expensive. Thanks for the additional information.Â I have done some mortis andÂ tenon joints in the past but not very often. I would have responded sooner but we were away for a spell. Adam
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.
