  1. I have been using my Dewalt for close to 20 years. I have replaced a few parts through this time as well. However, it has surpassed my expectations and am very satisfied with it. The big thing I like about this saw is the ease of setting the blade tension.

    That's true. That is one of the first questions I always get, how many holes.
  3. The main thing to remember is, let the blade do the work. Don't add a lot of presser
  4. What you are exspeircing is sawing across the grain. Some wood is harder to cut like that so you need to slow down you feed speed and possibly use a more courser blade. Go slowly with either blade. Let me know if this helped you or not.

    I know what you mean. If we counted them, we probably wouldn't do it. ha.

    I think I do. I'll do some searching. The clock works are very small.

    I made the clock about 15 years ago. It was about the most challenging piece I'm made. 2 pieces of walnut as base parts and the rest is 1/n red oak. About 200 hours start to finish. Thanks for asking.

    Thanks. It did turn out nice. Not everything comes out so good. I have been half way done with a board and something goes wrong and in the garbage it goes. Ha.

    Here is what I have been working on for so long. Started out with rough cut hard maple that had been stored for a few years. It wasn't the best wood but I was able to resaw it and get enough to make this plaque. It measures 24 inches wide and 32 inches high. Wood was planed down to three sixteenths. Didn't keep track of the hours. It was a challenge but, worth it. Made it for my grandson. He is putting it in his classroom
  13. Thank you kindly Looking forward to the next one..ha.
  14. Thank you to all my fellow wood workers for thinking of my birthday. It means a lot to me. In a couple weeks I'll be posting a new piece of work. Hope you enjoy it. God bless.

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.
