    Hello Artie Just decide that you want to go out in flames, working wood and chasing women right up to the end. Then manage your diet and start doing pushups and deep knee bends every day. Do leg lifts while laying in bed. Buy a 25 lb hand barbell and do bicep curls. Don't moan. Just DO IT! Wood and women are waiting!!

    How to make a "bunkie board"?

    That depands on the distance between the slats, the width of the slats, the thickness of the PB, and the weight distribution across it.

    Butcher block material?

    Hello Gary Next time, try rubbing the screws along a block of paraffin wax to lube the threads. That reduces friction and usually stops breakage in hard woods. hat

    Cardiac stents

    Her energy level is pretty much the same but her endurance is much greater because her blood flow is much better with the stent. Before, she would get "winded" with normal efforts and have to "catch her breath." Not so now, and no heart attacks!! hat

    Cardiac stents

    Hello smitty The Whip (age 66) had a couple of minor heart attacks in the Fall, 2017. Tests showed a minor blockage in the upper chamber. She got a stent installed going through the right wrist. The docs said it is easier for both you and them to go that way. They would have to install a plug in the groin entryway and you can't move around for a while. They kept her overnight for observation but she was fine (bored, too). She suffered no after-effects and walks 2 miles/day with me, sneaking in additions to the honeyDo list. hat

    Molding storage

    Hello Lissa. I agree with the warnings given above. I have seen people use plastic wrap like saran wrap to wrap the entire bundle. I have stored small pieces of molding in my unconditioned garage for log times w/o apparent damage. Its pretty dry in Northern Utah. Its difficult to give a recommendation w/o knowing the environment you are in, etc. Best. hat

    Molding storage

    Hello Lissa Lay it flat on something up off the ground and cover it with something water-proof. If you have several pieces, separate them with little sticks for good aeration. hat

    Hello Herb I agree with you that it looks like Leopardwood Never heard of it before. That explains the growling I sometimes hear in the shop. Now I have to go out in the shop and put it in a cage! 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.
