    Birthday Greetings to...

    Thanks guys!!! Still looking for what new tool I want to get, lol.

    Pencil marks.

    I use carbon paper for scroll saw patterns with a brown gum eraser ( same as sanding disc gum.) For layout on fine wood I use a layout knife. No pencil needed except for arcs.
  3. Yeah stick I could get car tires cheaper, but I'm hoping those tires on the bike help me get rid of the spare tire on my gut!!!!
  4. Nah, lol. I was trying to get over the 70.00 each tires I had to replace!!!!!
  5. Went to get my bike fixed today and ran across this in the bike shop. Made by a guy out in Colorado. All wood frame and fenders, wood handlebars and leather grips. Price: 6,000.00

    Plane Books

    The key to any plane is a sharp blade. Without that you are dead in the water. The ability to be able to control the amount of wood you are removing is key, just like a jointer or planer. Veritas has some good sharpening systems.
  8. Sounds like removing the bark is the way to go.

    Hole Saws

    Lenox brand is good, Milwaukee or greenlee is better. Remove the guide bit in the middle and make sure you have a 2 by for backing under the bit. Also use a fence and clamp down the piece so it doesn't spin.

    MWTCA May 2018 'What's It' Project

    I'm with Ron on this one. Could have had hay put in it then chained while horses hooves being shod, cattle being dehorned, or maybe sheep being sheared.

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.
