    Hello woodworkers!!

    So do you guys mainly buy turning blanks or are you finding and curing your own wood?

    Hello woodworkers!!

    I really appreciate the welcome. I am sure I will be having many questions for all of the wood-turners here really soon. I've only had my mini lathe since December so I am still working on figuring out what does what. I have attempted to make 2 pens with no luck, I was not able to drill a true straight hole in the pen blank. As of this afternoon I should now be able to, I stopped by Harbor Freight and purchased a small drill press so I will be turning a pen tomorrow afternoon.

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.
