    Cool! Between the two lamps you should have plenty of light.
  2. Issue 86 of the Woodcraft magazine has a nice article/project by Carl Jacobson using the Easy Wood Tools negative rake cutters. Carl turns a hybrid wood and resin box. Woodcraft even provides OnLine extras to flesh out the article https://www.woodcraft.com/pages/mag-online-extras

    A while back you asked about a safety drive spur. Is that what you are referring to?

  9. Last day for relatives. Spent the day driving around the Gettysburg Battlefield. No matter how many times you go there, it is always sobering. Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier posted a question about gluing acrylic to wood. He received a few responses. Pease check out his post and provide him with your experiences- Ron also posted a knitting needle vase he made for his wife- Ron describes the materials and their history in his post- @hawkeye10 is looking for some input on a new four jaw chuck. He received several comments on the one he was eyeing. Why not give him your opinion about what you like in your chuck- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools posted a picture of the Easy Wood Tools Christmas tree and it is beautiful. Head on over to Jim's post and see if you can find your ornament! There's still time (and room) to send your ornament to Jim! @Bob Hodge is using his turning skills to create works of art! Check out what he is doing with some beautifully turned bowls- Bobs post explains what he is creating- What’s Coming Up- The 2019 Florida Woodturning Symposium. February 8th – 10th, 2019 Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center http://floridawoodturningsymposium.com/ For The Newbies- Tim Yoder has a new video where he shows us the tools he uses in his shop. As turners we often wonder just what tools we need and Tim helps us figure that out. One of the biggest challenges in turning is trying to figure out how to hold the material securely. Unlike flat work, turnings are moving while we are working on them. Mike Peace offers a video on how to hold small pieces- Expand Your Horizons- I've been reading a lot lately about "wet sanding" and "sanding paste". Mike Peace has produced a couple of videos on the subject. His explanations are easy to understand and the video are not too long. Wet Sanding- Sanding Pastes- New Turning Items- Although not a brand new product, Easy Wood Tools has a super nice live center and cone attachments You can see detailed specifications at the Easy Wood Tools site- http://www.easywoodtools.com/live-center-3/ Everything Else- ...and just for enjoyment, Carl Jacobson make a hybrid turning. DON"T LOOK AT THE PEN!!! 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.
