    Yes, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus!

    Herb's a prince of a fella. Good for you, John. I see you scored a hat, too.

    Death from Fractal Burnng

    Still scares me. And, the $300 price, if not revolting, is certainly shocking.

    Tabs on the Weather...

    48* and scattered clouds. Headed for 52* this PM. 56* tomorrow. The ground is now it's normal color. Spongy, though.

    Wonderful story. I imagine that, at 19 and having fought his way to that point, collecting those art treasures was just another day in this man's army.

    Click on the ad links at the bottom. Can you imagine Doris Day endorsing an Interntional Harvester road roller? Then, there's the all in one sink, range and fridge unit. Them was the days.

    Retirement is Hard Work...! ! !

    You must grow older. Growing up is optional.

    Shop Heat

    For $3 more, they add smell and a biohazard sticker.

    sad news

    RIP, gentlemen. You will be missed.
  12. Ties of any sort, jewelry of any kind, wrist watches, long hair are all banned in my hobby shop and many commercial shops I've visited. Especially, the machine shops. I won't wear loose clothing or long sleeves either. Of course, with my girth, a ban on loose clothing isn't applicable. Something else not allowed in my shop are beverage cans or glasses that tend to sweat.
  13. Not over engineering at all. The woodsmith plans call for it.
  14. Gator, stick with the 3 In One. Just ask yourself if you've ever seen sawdust on those sheaves.

    Looking for advice (photos included!)

    Re: wood movement. No problems foreseen but, you can cross that bridge later.

    High of 48* and, rain predicted. No black ice here. But, that mucky road is slicker than snot. Partially sunny and mid 50s for tomorrow and, the next several days. That should dry things out. Might be safe to wash the mud off the truck by Thursday.

    Small corner table

    Artie, some of us can't understand Uzbekian. Luckily, I have Google Translate.

    Tabs on the Weather...

    No sunglasses needed here. It's back to mottled brown. 99.41 of the snow has turned to water and escaped underground. .49 has turned our road out to a wet, slick morass. Except that considerable amount clinging to the lower 90% of my truck.

  20. Dunno 'bout everbuddy else. I's just in it for the prizes. Truthfully, the best prize was the big smiles on the Basset's faces.
  21. HERB! You're a machine.

    Wooden skyscraper?

    There goes the cost of lumber.

    speedy sanding?

    Adjustable speed on my 6X48 belt sander and on the 12" disk sander is very handy. Different grits get different speeds.

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.
