  1. Thanks for the story ,real nice to hear peoples stories. Did you ever do any racing?
  2. Dave since you are calling names I cannot believe you left off Mario Andretti. Only won once and had many nears. Then he was the first to hit 200 mph in practice. My oldest son was due today and got a call will be tomorrow. So guess will be some shop time thrown in there.

    Still Tinkering With Color

    Form looks good. I like the color. If you want a "wood look" you could use dye instead.

    I Don't Know If Anyone Knows

    My camera may be a bit larger DSLR. Tried cases years ago and decided not worth the trouble also used to turn off after every shot and that was a waste of time. So now I have lens cap on lens and switch is always on . With rechargeable battery is no problem.

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.
