    the Toolbox of America -- Stanley

    Well, Wally and Sam came in years ago and put all the MOM and Pops , and the old established stores out of business,and the bigger ones became all-in-one stores to compete. Then the Super sized stores, we have a Wallys World here that I swear it takes 2 days to walk from one side to the other, like putting 2-3 Lowes together. They say what goes around comes around, now Amazon has taken the challenge,and Wally's is the one with tears in their eyes. Not in my eyes, I never shopped a Wallys after the first time, too many people in sandals and stinky feet. Herb

    Building a Bed Frame

    Streven that is sure a sturdy bed frame. You are doing a super job on it. What size is it a Queen? Looks more like a King Size in the pictures, did you check the mattress size? I would put a wooden ledge on for the slats while you are at it,throw that old iron one away,or trade it for a plane. You might have to beef up under the floor too, so save those ends you cut off the rails. And don't forget to give a holler to those kids to come and help you pack that up to the bedroom. Keep the pictures coming, don't want to miss any of this. Herb

    Brand Names Are Often Overpriced

    I am off the end of that chart, Keith on every thing I do in the shop, and I am not into Festools. But personal gratification must factor into that somewhere. Herb

    Brand Names Are Often Overpriced

    Negatory on the second one, If I needed one for a one job tool, I would considder the power plane. I have a belt sander I don't use any more doubt if I would use a portable plane either Like Steven says,"we have ways" Herb

    I found a hand plane that will fit my hand. https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-GHO12V-08N-Planer-Bare-Tool/dp/B07B6JPYFT/ref=pd_bxgy_469_img_2/147-1832705-8571505?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07B6JPYFT&pd_rd_r=f12a6898-5c99-11e8-95cc-8d6372de52a3&pd_rd_w=vQc8k&pd_rd_wg=3Pl7E&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3914568618330124508&pf_rd_r=37E98HATY5QGA2JPNSM3&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=37E98HATY5QGA2JPNSM3&dpID=51%252BacZOiEIL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=detail You have to copy and paste, will not open for some reason.

    Hole Saws

    I found that if I used WD-40 on the hole saw it doesn't plug up with sawdust and burn. cuts easier and smoother. I use hole saws a lot for larger holes not for the wheels, but for the holes. How thick and what material are you drilling? Herb

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.
