Just got this in an email from Woodworker's Journal. Thought some of us might be interested. Woodworker’s Journal subscribers love our regular “Woodturning” department and the advice of our expert woodturner, Ernie Conover. But turning isn’t the focus of our “Weekly” newsletter, and with just six print issues per year, it’s hard to meet our readers’ requests for even more turning content. That’s why Woodworker’s Journal is thrilled to be partnering with the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) to bring you this new free monthly newsletter. The AAW is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the art and craft of woodturning globally. It possesses the single largest collection of woodturning information anywhere and its award-winning journal, American Woodturner, is the foremost publication on the art and craft of woodturning in the world. Woodturning is one of the fastest growing areas of hobbyist woodworking, and once you’ve turned your first bowl, pen or furniture spindle, you’ll see why! A lathe can help you transform a chunk of firewood into a finished gift in just an hour or two, and woodturning doesn’t require a huge investment — even a benchtop lathe and a couple of gouges can get you up and running. For me, “turning” is as close as a woodworker can get to the kind of artistic freedom potters feel. And, it sure is fun to take a break from straight lines and hard measurements every now and then. So thanks for signing up! Be sure to tell your turning buddies to do the same. Then, by all means, let’s keep learning but even more importantly — doing! We hope our new monthly woodturning newsletter will encourage you to get out to the shop and, well, turn something! The rewards are rich, and the process is almost always a great time. Looks like there is a link on their home page.
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.
