    Is This a Dogs Foot Print?

    I use a low strung electric fence for rock chucks and they act like nothing is there. I just can't get rid of them. I have used shotgun, 22 rifle, pellet gun and they keep coming. They breed faster than I can shoot. The low strung electric works great for dogs. Preston

    Any of You Ever Own a Toro?

    That is something seeing them old ads. Thats when they were built to last and you could buy parts if they ever broke down. Now they are built to break down so you have to buy another, sorry no parts available. Preston
  4. Steven: I wish you luck with the blood thinners. I have been on them since 1986 and do well with them. I take warfarin or Coumadin or Jantoven. I take 12.5 mg four days a wk and 3.0 three days a week. I have side effects but it beats looking up at grass roots. Preston

    Shop Dust Fan

    I think I'm on to something. I have an overhead dust collector, window box fan and several box fans scattered around the shop. I have an overhead 2 car garage door and a regular door. All the fans blowing the same way moves a lot of dust but seems like never enough. I got a fan from a home furnace. Put it on wheels, hooked up electrically, covered the places where your fingers might get caught. I use a wheel chuck to keep it from driving around the shop. I placed it behind me and plugged it in. WOW WHAT A WIND STORM. I felt like I was dust free and it was all blowing out the 2 car garage door. I have a couple pictures. Preston

    Box, Bowl, Etc. Trade (Ongoing)

    Do I trade for something small or big? I don't want to ship a 6 foot coffee table or a 5 drawer dresser. I want to trade but I want to be fair. Am I sending out something out that doesn't come close to what I receive. This is a good idea. Maybe something to trade would fit in a certain size box like the P.O. cartons. Preston

    MWTCA May 2018 'What's It' Project

    Its a tethering fixture. It can hold up to four animals always males. Preferably one at a time. The next procedure is quite simple just a quick motion and their voice is now higher. Wait a few months and it dinner time. 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.
