    The Retired Carpenter

    That's a good story. Now, we need one on how to remedy the slip-ups we made along the way. hat

    Last Job Memories

    Cool! I've got notes, receipts, etc. from work I did nearly 30 years ago. I have a scar on my thumb from some table saw work I did 40 years ago! hat

    Force Blue Warriors

    I'm glad to see vets doing this. The decline of coral is seen worldwide and ocean acidification is the primary suspected cause. hat

    Hispanic Cultural Graffiti - Art

    Nice artwork! Thanks for sharing. Marking territory is part of animal nature and human beings are no different. Artwork representative of a culture is a sign of respect that goes a long way toward peaceful co-existence. I have learned to say typical greetings in several languages just to show acceptance and respect toward those people. Our world would likely be a better place if more respect was openly shown. hat

    Ridge vent

    I roofed my house over 20 years ago and installed 4 individual "turtle" vents. As I recall, ridge venting was a new idea. Now, I am re-roofing the house and want your insights into whether I should forego the turtle vents and opt for a ridge vent. Many thanks! hat
  13. I have a 3/4-inch scar on my left thumb that I must ask as a safety check before I turn on the machine. "Hey, Thumb. Are we good to go?" Us WWers sometimes get into complacency mode as we work through a project. Glad you're OK. hat

    Acceleration Explained

    That rate of acceleration is similar to what my wife does when she hears of a sale! hat

    I am BACK

    Hello Ron I'm sorry to hear of your loss. That can be tough. I like the table and chairs....good, solid practical design and construction. Many years ago, I used oak pallets to make a crib for my daughters. I spun the 2x4s out for the legs and posts, and cut ribs and headboards from the flat slats. hat

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.
