    a True Woodworker Needs a Spare

    That is a shame that the schools are discontinuing the shop programs. When I was a kid (a long time ago) I couldn't wait for eighth grade, that's when our shop classes began. I attended shop classes until the 10th grade and then to vocational school for 11 & 12 where we had a week of shop then a week of academics. I was in heaven especially when the instructor asked me to help out teaching basic lathe turning. He had no experience in lathe work and I had a few years at it. In Massachusetts the excuse for discontinuing these programs is liability.

    a Labor of Love - Cremation Box

    Good job DAB and truly a labor of love. I have done many over the years for family and friends. I am not being critical, just curious why hinges and a latch. Mine were permanently closed after the ashes were inserted so no possibility of an accidental spill.

    Leigh D4 Jig

    No PHD here either. It's a tough nut to crack but once you get it you'll get great results every time. Read the book, watch some videos and use a bunch of scrap for trial and error.

    Home Built Sawmill

    Awesome piece of machinery. I certainly admire your talent as designer, machinist and fabricator. Great job!
  9. I had four uncles that saw heavy action in WWII and were all lucky to come home alive. I was born when they were away at war and in their letters to my mom they all mentioned that they wanted to get this war over and come home to see me. They were a great influence on me teaching me how to hunt and fish, how to build things and repair cars. They are all gone now but I will never forget what they did for me and our country. God bless you all, Wally ,Pete, John and Bill.

    Not Exactly Woodworking...

    I participated in a few Derbys with my two grandsons. Much fun and very rewarding. I have a great grandson that just turned four so maybe I'll get to do it again.

    Stopped at HF to look at their drills

    I have two Bosch drills, one impact driver and four lithium ion batteries and all still working fine after 6+ years.

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.
