    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

    spraying with roundup, 2-4-D

    I have been spraying for weeds on fence lines, ditches, etc. for years and now I am told I'm using the wrong formula. I use 12 oz. of roundup and 6 oz. of 2-4-D mixed with 2 gallons of water. Is this two much roundup and 2-4-D? It's been working fairly good, but it is getting pricy. Preston

    spraying with roundup, 2-4-D

    I live in Idaho & some of my neighbors are farmers and they mix 2-4-d and roundup together and spray ditches and their banks. They say the two mixed together works better. The ditches are always well manicured. 2-4-D has not been banned around here. I have been doing spring clean-up and somehow someone threw away the instructions on how to mix, I won't mention any names but it wasn't my wife. I will go to the website and see what they say. Thanks to everyone. Preston

    MWTCA March 2018 "What's It" Project

    On second thought and countless days of research is has something to do with wood wind instruments I figured it is to correlate the readings of (an instrument) with those of a standard in order to check the instrument's accuracy with absolute calibration to perfection.. It's hard for me to think at these high levels so please next time do something simple like a screwdriver. Preston

    It may be a vintage alignment tool. What it aligns, well anything that needs to be aligned. That covers it! Preston

    PIP River Table

    a masterpiece from the masterpieces. There is a shortcut to Tucson just in front of my driveway. Thats a very nice job sir. Preston
  13. I carry everywhere I go but also I have to think am I doing the right thing. I will give an example I am shopping at a store and I hear a gun shot, I pull my gun and proceed to where I think the shot came from. In the meantime an officer of the law enters the store and proceeds to where the shooting is taking place. I have my gun drawn and am looking for the shooter and the police man sees me and shoots me. End of story. How would the officer know who I was. I guess if he got the shooter also and prevented more people dying my life would be worth it. The officer was doing his job. Preston
  14. I have not had any luck on finding out for sure. I have sent out pic and have had 2 replies not helping. Preston
  15. I think further and the more I do it looks like a wax modeling tool or for a matter of fact they could be used on anything that can be sculptured including mixtures. Preston

    Vagaries of age

    Well I finally graduated, now I can't drive unless someone is with me. I went to a meeting a while back and it was dark and I got lost, I mean really lost. I ended up in the boondocks and could see the city lights so that was the way I went. When I got to the city lights I didn't know where I was. I drove for about 3 hours and noticed something that was familiar and turned in and guess what I was home. My wife asked how the meeting was and I told her the truth. Now I didn't tell her this had happened before. I'll make a post on here and maybe in a few days I'll be searching on here and come across a post and think that is interesting so I'll go read the post. I'll start reading the post and finally figure out I wrote the post. I want to apologize for making posts that don't make sense or are confusing. I try but it doesn't work out sometimes. I like to think I'm at home when I on this website. 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.
