    bad day

    Al, You both all are in my prayers. Have you considered in home nursing services particularly when your daughter is at work...daytime hours? Many have a variety of services they can offer from around the clock, a few hours/day or week to just a day or two / week. It could help you give a break, give you & your daughter some guidance and would be beneficial to Eleanor too. The in-house therapy services provider may also provide that service or check with your supplemental insurance provider. The hospital where she was an in-patient through their Social Services Department should be able to give you a list of area agencies. Your family doctor may also be able to provide a list of independent agencies. Just a thought.

    Gorgeous maple

    Just need to add the date...at least the year. Aside from the minor detail...WOWZERS!! I'm not sure I have the adjectives to adequately describe the splendor of that grain. It is multi-dimensional with unbelievable depth. A beautiful piece deserving accolades. Thanks Steve.

  6. Weekend Update: Everybody but me, the dog & cats left ~10:30P Sat. for Florida, Gulf side. Sunday, Church, errands/groceries, then home. Few tasks at home, played ball with the dog, then went to "Emerald City" to Menards, H-F a couple other stops, had lupper, then home. Week ahead, got oil, filters etc. to service (3) vehicles plus the mower; some string trimming in today and will do more before the freeze hits tonight. Besides maintenance, mow yard, more trimming, and various other outside tasks. I was told I couldn't get on ladders, roof, use the chain saws and the like until they returned. I probably won't Will work in a trip or two to some of the Covered Bridge Festival flea-markets between now & the weekend. Other stuff TBD.

    Next Project start up

    It looked better when it was only half done! You nailed it (no pun intended) Great piece of multi-functional, high quality, great design and appearance piece of furniture. You did sign & date it on the back &/or bottom, right?

    Making smaller things

    Hope it has a left hand prop or a fast reverse. He's still smiling though, so I guess it must suit him.

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.
