    Lew inspired me

    I dont turn wood at all, but was impressed with Lew's rolling pins and wanted to use the last of my curly cherry in a cool way, so I made a cutting board, and cheese slicer. I haven't done any inlays in a few years, and this reminded me why. The glue up sucks! Plus in all the mayhem of the clamps and cauls, I messed up the order of the walnut and cherry strips....buuuuuuuut, it ended up al right.

    Sorry, I meant the process sucks. I’m cool with how it turned out-and totally agree with you. Most mistakes are only noticed by the maker. That’s woodworking yo

    Yeah time will tell for sure. I haven’t had any separation from other pieces with inlays that are about 8 years old, but of course all wood is different, just hope for the best as always.

    Hey thanks Lew, I bought them from home depot. I think they are bumpers for doors/door knobs. You can buy ones for cutting boards from wood craft I think, but the HD ones were like $1/bumper, plus the stainless screws it comes with is better for water IMO.

    Completed knife handle

    Really nice job. I like the purple hear wood strip, great grain selection!
  20. Dane Franco


    I made a small chair out of Grey Elm. Its great with or without stain. IMO its like working with oak. just a touch softer. One thing I wish I would have known is you really need to pay attention if you spokeshave it. It the grain gets all crazy, (which it can) just use a rasp. Its pretty inexpensive too. Good luck! Let us know if ya make something

    Test of Patience

    Great work!!!!!
  22. Great work yo! Ash? Burl?
  23. Hey thanks man. Ima huuuge fan of French Curves. Draw out what cha want, and just sneak up on ‘em, then you can rasp, spoke shave or gouge chisel for clean up to whatever ya want.
  24. Thanks, Gene! nope, that was an estate sale score. I’m workin on a pair of Ib Kofod Larsen replica now tho. Similar style, just loose cushion. Here’s the arm roughed out from power carving it. Now it’s hours of spoke shave, and rasp...no wonder they cost sooo much!
  25. This scratch and dent teak from that place. I made this side table to match out Lane pivot table. I’m pretty sure it was an old harvest b/c the growth rings were suuuupppper tight.

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.
