    TPW Gathering, Aug. 25. Time To Put Details Together

    I’ll be there and hopefully have Grandpa Dave with me. Fred, I’ll give ya a call.
  2. Having mine service connected has been a real perk. I have a friend that has the same aids that I have but he paid for his out of his own pocket. $4800.
  3. Same ones Tom. They are Signia (Siemen). They’re like $5,000 ear buds and the sound is amazing. They have a ton of bells and whistles.
  4. John, you’re making me look like a slacker. Cal, I love Savannah and all the old south culture. I sound out a few weeks ago that 4 years on the flight line in the Air Force has done damage to my high frequency hearing. Yesterday, I was fitted for my first ever set of hearing aids and it’s an adjustment. The aids are high end and the audiologist was very good (pretty too). I have an app on my phone to custom adjust the aids...go figure. I’m prepping for a show next weekend so all work is put on hold for the weekend.

    I retired at 59. Never regretted it.

    Another Anniversary

    Congrats! In this day of mini marriages, you have been very successful. You make me feel like a newlywed with my 48 years.

    the Pitfall of Retirement

    We worship every Sunday. That’s my reference point to know what day it is. I also don’t exercise on Sunday so I get an exclamation point.
  12. Today is my usually lucky day. I separated the USAF on Friday, July 13th, 1973.

    Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! July 9, 2018

    There’s a saying in the Midwest that goes, “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.” We’ll, I guess I’m a blind squirrel. I examine the pile of lumber and it is mostly walnut, maple and a dab of poplar. Probably about 500 bf of the stuff. I brought some home but I need to find more room in the garage. My barn loft is already full. They are thrilled to get rid of it and were ready to burn it.

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.
