My son's Cross Country team asked if I would take an attempt at making a new spirit stick for the team. What I have learned about spirit sticks at cross country meets is that the teams carry these to receive their awards post-run. I do not know much else about the history of this and believe it just something that the teams do for fun. I agreed to give it a shot as the old one was in a bad state of repair. I have a Powermatic PM90 with VFD but have not had many excuses to run it. I am really a "nooby" in the turning world. I also took a first attempt at inlay on this project. While I do not consider this my best work, I am pleased with how it turned out and what I learned as well. This will be attached to pool cue that is candy striped in two tone blue school colors. I did not have it ready at the time I took the pictures. For many of the folks here, I know that this is pretty rudimentary turning so I apologize for the fledgling work. Hopefully it meets the team expectations!. Go Storm!
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.
