  1. BTDT! I am lucky enough to have the VA do mine. Starkey Halos that bluetooth to/from my phone/app. I've had these a year and still getting used to them. Conversation in a noisy environment is my biggest problem. The audiologist had a set of special ear molds made to reduce feedback and that helps.
  2. Man, John, you put me to shame!

    Japan Is Not Like Any Other Country

    I was there in 1966. Unfortunately, not long enough to be able to see much of the country but what I remember, it was a beautiful place.

  8. @Gerald Thanks! @HandyDan Thank you! I have a piece of Manzanita that might be a candidate for a small turning. @Steve Krumanaker Thanks! I like the dibble. Especially being that length. No need to get down on your knees to make the holes.

    Question About Woodsmith 'Tip'

    I put used blades (box knife type) inside another container (laundry detergent, etc.) and dispose that way. Nails, screws never really worried about them.

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.
