    You know, I kinda LIKE that "baby mop" idea. It's never too early to instill a work ethic in your kids. John

    What's On Your Work Bench?

    Retired farmers get a somewhat different memento. Did you know that dried cattle dung becomes almost as hard as wood, and you can carve your initials in it? John

    Tabs on the Weather...

    I remember that day, back in the late 50's, I believe, when it got SO hot that the corn in the fields started to pop. The cows thought it was snowing, and promptly froze to death! Which just goes to show.... it's all in your mind! John
  10. Thanks Dave. (My son's name too.) He's responding well to treatment, and keeping his spirits up. As for the BS (the saw, not the other one...) I believe he paid $35 for it, and it has been VERY lightly used. His daughter was here last night, and promptly claimed it as her own. Nice to see that SOME kids are still interested in WW'ing! John
  11. Last week was rather a hectic one... son to the cancer center on Monday for blood work and doctor consult, treatment on Tuesday, remove treatment on Thursday (he wears a bottle of poison for two days). Plumbing fix for my daughter on Friday, and work all day Saturday at the garden center. That left Wednesday, and son was feeling pretty good, so we took a two-hour drive east to pick up some tools he had found on Kijiji. First was a 6" jointer in decent shape, as well as a few odds and ends, then another 45 minute drive to see a drill press (virtually unused... he got it!) then north 20 minutes to see a tool cart (got it). Headed home by my favourite route, along Lake Ontario, stopped for a burger at my favourite restaurant, then by a junk shop to see what they had. As we left there, the heavens opened up, and we were blessed with about 2" of rain in about 5 minutes! Everything stayed dry under the tarp, though. Offloaded most of it to his workshop, but brought the jointer home (he ran out of space). So THIS week (no chemo) I have several projects to keep me busy. An 8" bandsaw he bought recently, which I've already rehabbed, but waiting on a small bearing. ($26 for a bearing the size of a nickel!) The jointer, new belt, everything adjusted but needing a frame to keep the legs from flexing. A fully functional No.6 Bailey corrugated plane (MINE!) that needs only minor clean-up. Been looking for one of these for a couple of years, but wasn't about to pay $140 for it. Got this one for $40! And my Father's Day present, which he figured would look good hanging on the wall of my shop. Guess he never noticed that ALL my wall space is already taken! BTW, he got two of these, and his will get a place on some wall of his log home, currently under construction. And FWIW, @Grandpadave52, his has BOTH handles AND a blade guard! John

    Happy Father's Day

    I believe it's the cordless model. John

    Happy Father's Day

    A little late to the party, but I hope all you fathers had a good day! We were gone all day, but my son brought his kids over around 9:30 to wish me a good one. I suspect he just couldn't wait until today to give me my present..... a new (to me) saw! He knows I like to re-hab old tools, and I don't have one like this yet. I may need some tips from @steven newman! Hope I'm not in over my head. 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.
