After over 30 years of being a subscriber, and buying most of the early issues I could get my hands on, I finally let my subscription lapse last year. While looking for some reading material this week, I picked up a couple of the recent issues at the library, which is what I've been trying to do. My wife thinks that I know have read it all, before, but I'm just not finding much of interest in there recently. One article in an issue I picked up was how to cut a half-lap miter. It went on for six or seven pages. No offense to Steve or other hand-toolers, but the guy cut the whole thing by hand, then (even as he says in the article) does a lot of fine smoothing, trimming and fitting with a plane or chisel. Geeze. I would do this on my table saw with a miter gauge (or miter sliding table) and a tenoning jig and be done with it before he roughed it out. Some operations are more efficient with hand tools than setting up a power tool operation (and jigs!) but this ain't one of them.
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.
