    Why I don't build ships

    I once saw a FSBO sign in AZ that read "Future Beach Property".

    Using gloves when turning

    No gloves around spinny things. Especially, spinny things with teeth. YMMV.

    Only ex Marines called Gibbs do that. Ever notice there's a lack of measuring tapes in his basement shop?

    Tabs on the Weather...

    A while ago, now that it's daylight, we measured the snow. It's 12" deep! And, more is on the way. Areas to the west like Flagstaff and Payson have had 100 year record snowfalls. 40" so far. The shop is as far as I'm venturing for a while. The dog loves it. But, she's not too smart.

    Phyl’s bro. and sis in law pulled their 5th wheel up from Tucson a couple days ago. They’re in a park in town. Last night, we drove in and picked them up for a meal out. It was spitting snow. By the time we finished eating, there was 6” of snow on the car and, it was snowing harder. A regular blizzard. We drove them back to their park and could just barely find the entrance. Then we headed for home. 18 miles of white out in the dark. Never got over 20 mph. Couldn’t see the edge of the road. Luckily, we made it home without incident. Well, I did wander off our lane and did some cross country driving for about a 100’. Town got about 10”-12” overnight. I’m guessing we got around 8 or 9. Bro and wife were planning on heading to Dallas today. That ain’t happening. Forecast for another 6” or so today. NOTHING is moving on the mesa.

    I only cook out of dire necessity and, multi ingredient recipes are way outta my league. But Phyl more than covers for me. Although, her methods of measurement is quite similar to mine. She's not good with numbers, either. she's a pinch, dash and, just a tiny bit more, kinda chef.

    That winter storm warning for this area is till in effect. It hasn't hit here...yet. but, radar shows a steady march our way. Payson, AZ is about 50 miles west of us, and a few hundred feet lower and, they're bracing for 30" to 40". Forecasts a two day total of 7" to 15" (possible) for us. If the wind keeps up like it is now, we may have some decent drifts. .

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.
