    Ornament Display

    Ron - The Christmas tree in the Easy Wood Tools lobby uses only turned ornaments. We would like to buy one of your pieces. You pick the one you want to send and let me know how much we owe you. Thanks! Jim

    Humble Beginnings.

    I was lucky enough to spend a full day with Wayne Barton, I have a small sample of his work which he signed for me. Watching him work was magical, he is a gifted artist. This will be time well spent to become proficient.... Nice work!

    'Maple Rocks' Is Done

    Steve, your skill and creativity are on another level than most. I am thrilled when I turn a simple bowl and don't screw it up. You sir, consistently make museum quality pieces. Well done sir, well done.

    I Keep Returning To Mexico!

    This wood is just so pretty, it makes me look like I almost know what I am doing. I am a novice at best but I enjoy it so..... This is about 3" tall and 5-1/2" wide.

    I Keep Returning To Mexico!

    @Gerald I've seen people who always promise and make a point of returning the favor of free wood with a bowl or special item they turned as a way of saying thanks. I think it's a wonderful practice and something I will certainly do.... as soon as it happens to me!

    I Keep Returning To Mexico!

    @HandyDan thank you my friend! @John Morris walnut and bocote are definitely my favorites and it has a lot to do with nature giving me a head start with the natural beauty of the wood. I am becoming more patient in my turning, not settling for thicker bottom and sides. It's really satisfying to turn a well balanced bowl with consistent thickness that feels good to the touch. Thanks for your kind words.

    Thanks Lew... that manzanita piece is beautiful. Reminds me of another piece you did! Beautiful work.

    Opinions please

    Steve, I have purchased two different Grizzly bandsaws and one lathe. I've always been impressed with fit and finish and have had zero problems. The best part has been customer service from Grizzly, everyone I've spoken with has been knowledgeable and very friendly. Good luck!

    Help Wanted / Chicagoland

    Do you live in the Chicagoland Area?

    Help Wanted / Chicagoland

    Steve, you are correct, it would be great. We do have some demonstrators that will travel, but we are actually a very small company, travel costs and expenses add up very quickly. Does it make sense for us to spend $1,000.00 or more for somebody to demonstrate for 45 minutes to a turning club? It's hard to justify. We would love to do it much more than we do, but it is just not economically feasible. What I am trying to do is establish EWT qualified demonstrators in more major metro areas. The best way to sell our tools is to get them into peoples hands and let them try it.

    Wood turning clubs.

    very cool... creative minds like his are so impressive... beyond my ability. so much to learn

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
