  2. Man, that brings back memories! My dad must have had a hundred glass jars full of assorted fasteners and whatever, all held to 1x3's with two screws through the lid, and the 1x3 screwed to the bottoms of the joists. Every once in a while, he would flip a board over, catching a jar and knocking it free. Glass tends to shatter when it hits a concrete floor! I learned some interesting words that way!!! John BTW, those drywall screws tend to twist the heads off in harder woods. Another good reason to avoid them.

  5. Sorry,Preston, I forgot about that part of your question. Any time you have a low (reaction), take a teaspoon of table sugar or a hard candy, wait about 20 minutes, and check your blood again. If it will be awhile before your next meal, have a slice of bread or the equivalent (half a donut?) as the glucose in that should hold you for an hour or two. Some folks will take a teaspoon of honey, but apparently the sugar in honey is not absorbed into your system as quickly as table sugar. This also holds true for many soft candies, (toffee?) as they contain fats, which bind to the sugars and release them more slowly. John P.s. 110 is just about PERFECT! Right in the middle of the acceptable range.

    Glad to hear you're OK. John
  7. You're getting there, but no need to worry just yet. Around 72 you may start to feel a little woozy. There is also a lot of variation between individuals. I'm used to being on the low side, so I don't usually notice anything wrong until I get down to around 55. If your BC tends to be on the high side, you may react around 80 or so. Do you ever see a specialist for your condition? John
  8. And for the diabetics among us..... always check your blood sugars before using power (or sharp) tools! Low blood glucose is the same as being intox-HIC-cated!! John
  9. Congratulations, Peter! John

    I am often called upon to assemble Chinese-made patio furniture at the garden center, and believe me, I could use some of those fasteners! John
  11. Love that table, John! John

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.
