    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

    How to hold a small leg in the lathe?

    Do you have a face plate? if so, you can make a pocket to hold the end you're trying to hold with the spigot jaws. Make it a snug fit and attach it to your faceplate. The tailstock will keep pressure to hold the leg in place. Steve

    Ornament supply goes down

    Looks good Ron, I don't see the color bleed either. I like your jewelry fixings too. Steve

    2018 Ornament

    They look like real bulbs and I agree with Gerald about the duplicating. Well done! Steve

    Ball Catch Game

    Everything about this is outstanding, from the craftsmanship to the fellowship. Steve

    On every bowl I turn it's my goal to not need to use a scraper. Seldom do I achieve that goal. I agree with everything Gerald said. Properly used a bowl just gives a superior finish but it takes much practice and repetition to make that sweet cut every time. I prefer a negative rake scraper as they far less likely to catch. Steve

    My move from craftsman to art?

    Never would've thought of doing something like. Very creative I think Steve
  10. Been dealing with some family issues and haven't been in the shop very much. I did finish a couple pieces yesterday and today. Both are maple and both are right at 12" diameter. I think these two pieces really illustrate just how versatile is maple. First is a shallow bowl or deep platter, would probably work either way. Next is a platter, my attempt at a "traditional Irish platter" from the Glenn Lucas DVD and this is also one of the things a person will turn during his class. This is wormy, spalted, maple. Actually, in the interest of full disclosure and truth in advertising, this one is wormy, spalted, maple and superglue, a ton of it. Thanks for looking. Steve

    Believe it or not, I've done several of them at one time or another. Not a one of them on purpose!! 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.
