    Question About Woodsmith 'Tip'

    Guess we will have to hire someone to protect us from all of these sharp objects. My wife talks about taking my tools away every time I get a scratch in the shop

    Pecan Platter

    I cannot yet address the longevity of the sent but it is kinda nutty with something else. I put several coats on but you know how it is if 2 looks good 4 will be fantastic. Looks like walnut oil and tung oil are both best suited for porous woods like oak and pecan. These type oils are not good on woods like cherry but I do have a cherry in progress with walnut oil so will see. I have found recently that 2 or maybe 3 coats of Watco works fine on cherry. Love the oils because if you do apply too much it will buff out , just takes time.

    Pecan Platter

    Just finished this pecan platter from a crotch. Not very thick , maybe quarter inch. Tried Mahoney walnut oil for first time . This is an interesting utility finish. Does not look like it buffs out. Good for a delicate project and gives a flat finish, no shine ok maybe a little. Easy to apply.
  6. Good one Lew and those Finials look great.

    Rust On My Table Saw---Again

    A thought just came to me would an electric charge affect rust formation? Why not wipe down with WD40 and clean that off when using saw, not really needed to wipe because it will evaporate.

    Lathe Switch Failure

    My first lathe ,a Delta Midi, had a switch problem. I opened it up and the contacts melted together. I filed it and worked fine till it did it again. You know I have been dropping a few things lately, guess I just need to slow down ....some more

    I think the phone app may require the phone to be out of the case for consistent readings

    Media Resources

    Hey @John Morris How about a library listing with names and authors with a brief synopsis of the topic? Then instead of having links have numbers on the books and the refer to library in post.

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.
