Too many "Moons" ago, I used to build foundations.....alot. From chasing the backhoe digging the trench for a footer, up through backfill. Whether it was a simple "Frost Wall" up to the "Big Jobs" of 75-100' formed and placed a day. Thinking of telling the story of just a simple foundation job......say a house with basement? Most times, I never say a basement job. So, maybe just a 4-6' tall foundation wall? Take it from the footer trench up to the top, using all the "steps" I went through? Any interest here for that sort of thing? Maybe explain all the stuff we did back then, just to see if anything has changed in 13 years. And.., yes, I am too old to work concrete, anymore. Side note: Thomas & Marker Co. has a 195,000 sqft building going up, on the edge of town. I drive by there a few times a week, and can pick out just what they are building or placing. Suppose to be a wharehouse for NEX, a supplier for the Honda plants around here. Other suppliers ship to one of the NEX wharehouses, then as needed parts would be loaded onto a truck to arrive at the assembly line just in time to be installed. The Honda plants themselves have no actual wharehousing in the plant, other than what just came off a truck. So, maybe a story of how a simple foundation was built?

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.
