    Ground Wasps

    I can't imagine the horror of that experience. It would be all-out war. I hope that you were not seriously affected other than multiple stings and swellings. hat

    Ground Wasps

    So far, a heavy shot of foam wasp killer in the hole followed by a shovelful of dirt seems to be working. Thanks to all! hat

    Ground Wasps

    I discovered a nest of ground wasps next to my outside water faucet. It was stinging discovery, to say the least. I have buried the entrance 3 times now and sprayed it with wasp killer. They are determined little rascals, digging out each time. The current score is wasps 4, hat 0. hat
  8. That's excellent work, John! Thanks for sharing.
  9. Website for more info about the USMM http://www.usmm.org/faq.html hat
  10. There was a letter to the editor in the paper about how the USMM song was not played during a celebration. I recall a couple of years ago the US Coast Guard song was not played during a VD celebration. Many folks think the songs should be played while some don't. The USMM had the highest casualty ratio during WWII, were ordered into service, and were considered part of the US military. They played a vital role in the war effort. I am always amazed that some folks seem reluctant to celebrate veterans. hat side note: I can't correct the "Us" to US in the topic title.
  11. A friend asked me to make 4 folding chairs (all wood) and a folding table for their deck. I can design the table but need plans for the chairs. The table will be approx. 29" high so I will size the chairs to fit ergonomically with it. Can anyone point me to any plans or sites where I might find plans? Many thanks! hat

    Coffee and Honey

    I like a medium dark roast Colombian coffee. I used to add a teaspoon of honey when I had lots of allergy problems and I think it helped clear them up, so less honey now for sugar control. On occasion, I'll pop in a teaspoon of dark cocao powder or cinnamon for the reported naturopathic benefits. I have eaten chunky-style PB since I was a small boy and eat it every day now on wheat bread or a high fiber, low carb wrap with kale, spinach and a teaspoon of medium heat salsa. I nearly died when I couldn't get PB in basic training and AIT. 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.
