    Thank you, Ron. Touching those names, on that wall, is a profound and sobering experience.

    Up, Up and Away

    I think that's funny! Sometime back I posted a similar device on another popular woodworking site. Some of the PETA members were less than entertained.
  5. Wow, Stick, you guys out west are really missing out on all the finer things in life- no Sheetz and no Natty Bo (National Bohemian Beer)!

    Glue Test

    I was reading a thread about glue strength and someone offered this article from Fine Woodworking about their glue tests. http://www.oldbrownglue.com/images/articles/HowStrongisYourGlue_FWW.pdf
  7. Now if it just dispensed Natty Bo
  8. Sheetz... maybe an east coast business
  9. WOW! With that, $.95 and your own cup- you can get coffee at Sheetz!

    the Pen Jaws Worked.

    Mighty nice jig, Tom, and the pen is beautiful!! Mr. David Reed Smith really provides excellent instructions for his jigs. I've made several of his offerings.
  11. Our Patriot turners have been at it again! Lots of projects posted and input provided. @RustyFN escaped serious injury when a gouge he was using snapped in half. Rusty was turning a log when a catch damages the tool and lacerated his hand. Read about the incident in Rusty's thread- @Ron Altier is busy experimenting with different woods and finishes with his beautiful ornaments. Check Ron's posts and the comments- Although he didn't turn these, member @Jay is making some lures for fly fishing. Lots of input including a link for ideas on turned lures. Read about Jay's post- @Smallpatch is making some "Teapots" He has posted several images of his work. He creates fantastic detail in his pieces- Several weeks ago we talked about the different skew chisel shapes. Some turners prefer the curves end while others prefer the "straight" edge. I found this article by Alan Lacer, from Popular Woodworking Magazine, detailing how to convert the straight end to a curved end. It includes the author's opinion of why he prefers this shape. https://www.popularwoodworking.com/projects/aw-extra-121213-reshaping-the-skew-chisel Our generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, @Jim from Easy Wood Tools shared a video on YouTube of a really special turning by Jim Overton. Mr. Overton uses EWT tools almost exclusively to create a lamp from various materials. The really awesome aspect of the project is the appearance of the lamp when it is finished. I came across a nice site that has lots of turnings that include project details. You may find a project idea from the listings. http://woodarchivist.com/category/woodturning-projects-and-techniques/ I'm a little late with this post of "Rick Turns" YouTube video list for April. If you check out this list, please give Rick a BIG Thank You for all his work! This was a "Mom" day for me. I don't know how a 92 year old 4' 8" lady can run me into the ground! Anyway, when I got home, I found this on the porch- Looks like all turning isn't artsy fartsy. I found a chunk of wood in the wood shed- Cut a chunk for the turning- I'll need to drill a hole for the tang and the turn the handle. That'll be tomorrow- after I paint the deck furniture. Safe turning

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
