    Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Calvin Coolidge

    Interesting Picture Transfer

    Hi Tom, thanks for thinking of me. It looks like it has great potential and if it works would definitely have benefit to me. In case you've never noticed, I don't actually do pictures, the reason being, I can't draw worth a lick. Most everything I do is a pattern which only involves a few repetitive lines. If I ever desire to put an actual picture on a piece I would absolutely need something like this.

    Humble Beginnings.

    Thanks to all for the comments and encouragement! This piece of bass wood is 12/4, just over a foot long and about 7" wide. I have both sides prepped for practice. It's my plan to do both sides, plane it off, and start over. I figure by the time it's 1/2" thick or so I may be ready to try carving on a turned piece. if not, well, I've got more practice wood!

    it's amazing how many different ideas there are when it comes to turning. Brian's machine reminds of a legacy mill but looks to be much more versatile. Nice recap Lew! Steve

    Not to worry Dave. I'm here to share and learn, right now it would be great to have someone like him offering help. Steve

    Humble Beginnings.

    This may not seem like it's turning related but it is. I want to learn a little about chip carving for embellishing. I have some boxes turned and ready but thought it might be better to practice on some flat pieces first. Glad I did, it's harder than I thought it might be. I am finding it's a lot like turning in that it's all about technique. This is the most basic cut and probably the most often used in chip carving, the triangle. Going to take a lot of practice I think. I can see some progress from top to bottom but have a long way to go. Steve

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.
