    Magnets and wood turning

    Steve: I have been looking for the button magnets about 1/2" dia and am not having much luck. Can you suggest a place that sells lower priced-made in the USA magnets? I want to glue one on a dowel to pick up dropped metal on the floor. Preston
  4. Mine was 87 this morning, is that two low? if it is what would I do? Preston

    Steve: That is a great job using the magnets. They are a real showcase to say the least. Thanks for sharing. I like working with magnets and now you have my mind working. Preston

    I have some more pictures to post. I took lots of pictures and many short videos. They kept us busy at first as we all felt it was our fault when we trimmed the tree. Everything worked out fine and we like to think they came back to us the next year. I will post some more pic soon. We are happy you enjoyed the pictures. Preston

    moulding adhesive on vehicle

    I have a 10 year old pickup and the molding keeps coming off the doors. Every time I go to the dealership they can't fix it or it costs me to have it done. I got some stuff that you spray on the adhesive and scrape off and it didn't work. Any body have a remedy? Preston

    This is more pictures. I was able to get close to the nest, at first mom would buzz my head but after a few attempts she became accustomed to me and would sit on a nearby branch just a couple feet away while I took pictures. Enjoy Preston

    We have at least 3 females that use our feeders daily. Have lots of males but they are not as regular as the females. The females will partake of the feeders about every 30 minutes and average about 25 seconds recharging at the feeder. We have not seen any hummers in about 2 weeks. Must of gone south. Preston
  15. That is a very nice piece of work. I like to see things like that. Thanks for posting. If I got on a beauty like that it would end up being a big pile of splintered tooth picks. Preston

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.
