A local woodworking shop, "Mark Richey Woodworking" was honored with a national award for its efforts in pollution prevention and energy efficiency. The 130,000 sq ft shop in Newburyport MA. which specializes in high end architectural woodworking, heats the shop using a biomass boiler that burns waste sawdust and wood chips from the production floor. They have also invested in solar arrays and a wind turbine which produce almost 100% of the power needed to operate the company, and the company has reduced organic compounds by 12 tons due to investments in a solvent recycling unit, an ultrasonic spray gun cleaner, a robotic spray line and the use of water-based coatings Richie said, if we can do it, other companies can too. Nice to know that a local woodworking shop is doing well.
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
