    Will be a perfect frame for the picture. A great story and such an honor for the group.

    I guess one would be wise to let them play through

    Sounds to me like, the money would have been better spent determining the IQ of the individuals spending nearly 3/4M to assess the IQ of an animal...just sayin'

    Tabs on the Weather...

    27o at 06:30...plenty of frost to go around. Once the sun appeared it has been full sun with only light breeze from the West. Current is 52o with a "real feel" of 60o...personally I can't tell the difference. Still better than what is coming. Looks like we're going to be in a below average temperature pattern for the rest of the month. Gonna' be one long winter, AGAIN!

    Keep us posted. I've seen a few on CL for a decent price...unfortunately they weren't close enough to make it a good purchase once gas/time was factored. Still think I would like one too...I'll keep watching...might be a purchase sometime when Memard's has their 11% Rebate Sales. They used to carry them...IDK anymore.

    golden plum tree

    Would yield some awesome bowls and other turnings too Preston. I suspect some short boards could be harvested to make some really cool small boxes also.

    Heat wave this AM. 37o vs the 28o yesterday. Full sun both yesterday & so far today but WINDY. High was 56o yesterday...about the same for today?? Storm Shield has already issued a Freeze Warning for tonight.

    Too many drills?

    because it's an odd number...you need one more to make a dozen, then the drill karma will be in harmony.

    almost a finger

    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.

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.
