    Tissue Boxes

    Gerald if that would have been my project...... I would have gotten the band saw, the planner, the drum sander and a few other machines involved and by the time I had invested hundreds of bucks I would have ended up with a tissue box so thin the first sneeze would have destroyed it.......not counting a few days in the shop which would have kept me from getting that tan I have been planning on since winter...So you see I could have made 13 boxes exactly with the same amount of wood,, but I am not supposed to be using oak!!!

    Glue Test

    Maybe they left it off the list cause they couldn't spell it... I do that quite often or hunt around trying to find a word meaning the same with easier spelling!!!! Life is hard with my brain sleeping most of the time..

    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    A little more work.. more thinking than actual doing something...
  9. I noticed a couple of 113 days thrown in there somewhere.. So I might can get more shop days with the grass and weeds dying during those days..... Kind of an automatic lawn care type of thing....

    Starting To Build A Tea Pot.

    I've been fixin places for the four legs. Maybe the hardest part of building a tea pot, securing the legs where they look like they were built for that area.. Better looking lines. After the legs are carved and finished I'll epoxy them in. Then drill through the legs in to the body a ways for some dowels......for extra strength ??? Time it takes for me to build one tea pot.....about the same amount of time for a 4 piece bedroom suite. But the bedroom set would already have some kind of plans where I just wing it on a tea pot. I make one piece at a time then try to figure out how it will attach to the rest and try to make it look like all goes together.Like on all the tea pots I have made, no two are the same size just so I will have to start from from scratch and resize all over again....A person first has to satisfy ones self, after that, just cross your fingers. This other tea pot I did the legs different... Now I got to figure how the set of legs will melt into the rest of it and not look like a sore finger sticking out for everyone to step on. I mounted them on a piece of bb and the pot is just sitting there on the bb.
  11. Tomorrow the temp will be 97 then 8 days in a row 100 to 109.. and since the warmer days are ahead of us for two or three months so you snow birds might give it a thought. Only so many layers of clothes can come off but it will still be hot......need two or three smiley faces here quickly!!!!

    Skeleton Clocks

    I was asking you Steve. It just seems like it is caged in for no reason.

    Skeleton Clocks

    Did you design this or was it a kit. I don't know why I am the only one to be critical of what it is ..... but here you have a skeleton clock and you are building a frame around it .... like you are trying to hide the fact it is what it is.

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.
