    Still Tinkering With Color

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

    Tissue Boxes

    Did more glue up today and put the corner block in the bottom corners.
  4. What are they going to do when you retire for all these building projects? Looks like it will be really sturdy.

    Tissue Boxes

    Thanks for the comments. Plan is for a bead on sides and modified cove at edge of top. Also will add bead at bottom and round over the corners.

More later this week

    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.

    Brand Names Are Often Overpriced

    Most hand planes can be tuned or upgraded to do a good job. I bought a Craftsman with a crack in the mouth and was able to tune it to get a good shaving but that is nothing like my Stanley #7 with a Hock blade.

    Hole Saws

    Lets go in a different direction and use a pattern bit in router. Make a circle pattern in ply or masonite, tape it onto your board with double stick tape and use the router with pattern bit to get repeatable circles.

    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    How about gold guilt cream by Liberon. https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=liberon+gilt+cream&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=241955782946&hvpos=1t1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=18011335604052645365&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9013919&hvtargid=kwd-1266014487&ref=pd_sl_8mue7f7ppf_b Not cheap but works well and does not take much

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.
