  1. Maybe not for us hard-core tool junkies: https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/home-depot-vs-lowes-which-chain-is-better
  2. Just wanted to make you all aware of this. I needed a new router bit for a current project. It's a bit unusual, so before heading out, I checked online to see which of the usual suspects might have it and compare costs. I decided on a Bosch bit from Lowe's, primarily because they were offering 10% off sale Easter weekend, but also easier to get to one. So I'm headed out across town Friday and stopped at one on the way. Well, they had a bunch of Bosch ones, but apparently, not that particular one. The BAG (blue apron guy) was particularly unhelpful, not even knowing what a beading bit was. Many were on hooks, but there were about 8 just laying on the shelf. After a few frustrating minutes, left and continued on for my appointment. On the way home, passed one more, stopped at a second Lowe's that did not carry Bosch bits at all, but a completely different brand. And they, too did not have the bit profile I wanted. Got home and checked online again. The first store was supposed to have two in stock. But there was not a hook for them, so ??? But upon further investigation only a few stores, none nearby, carried them. Over the weekend, the furniture bank was trying to order a Bosch Router from Amazon. Order got cancelled, out of stock. So checked again. Lowe's carries them, but again, only in certain stores. Of the 15 or so stores listed as "nearby" (i.e., 40 mile radius), only about 4 of them stocked the item, none convenient. But all could get them shipped to store in 3-7 days or (because of $ amount) free ship to home. Morale of story: Not all Lowe's stores are the same. Check before you drive to one. Just because you see it online does not mean you're going to find it in your selected store -- drill down and look for availability. Part of the problem is my stupid internet provider. If a web site tries to determine my location from my IP address (?) it puts me anywhere from West Virginia across all of southern Ohio. Some places remember your "favorite store," Lowe's does not. Made a side trip to HD Saturday. They had it. End of rant
  3. Perhaps this has been noted by others, but the brand "Greenworks" sure looks like they're made by Ryobi. It allows Lowes to sell them (10% off for vets)(but only if they served in military) in addition to the Kobalt line.
  4. https://www.lowes.com/mylowes/login?context=military My VA ID has always worked at Lowes (and HD, too) but, this online sign up will make check out faster for me...by about 10 seconds. But then, at my age, every second counts.

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.
