  1. About a dozen years ago, my daughter & husband were renting a 19th century house with a 19th century kitchen. She asked me to make a spice cabinet for her. Two houses later, they've now re-done their kitchen and don't need it any more. But I do, so it came back. Different sized spice containers than she had, but still works.
  2. Beaver 24" scroll saw

    This saw was purchased for me at an auction in september 2014 by a friend of mine who thought I might want it. As it was fairly complete except for one small part he did okay. I worked on it for a while about a year ago but other things took priority so I put it aside. Last week I finally got back at it. The worst part was cleaning off all that aluminum paint. The saw got a complete strip down and rebuild including new bearings in the drive box. Other than the drive box there is not a lot to these saws so the rehab went pretty quickly.The motor got a complete overhaul as well. While I was at it I made a new stand and replaced all the electrical. The saw runs pretty sweet but I think I will still keep my 1938 Delta 1200 and move this one on. Maybe my buddy will buy it, no probably not.
  3. Any Radio Heads Out There?

    My son bought a 1940's Philco radio to restore. Believe it or not, the thing still works but he wants to add a digital radio to the unit with new speakers but also keep the original "guts" to the unit. Here's the dilemma. There is a small panel that he has removed that he wants to trim down and re-install as a removable plate to hide the digital radio. I suggested installing a set of slides that would pull straight out and put a hinge on the face plate that would let you flip the plate down to access the radio. Y'all have any ideas?
  4. Salvaged Dining Table

    We just bought a salvaged dining table from Restoration hardware. It doesn't seem to have any type of sealer on it. The first time I put a hot cup of coffee on it, it left a ring. When I tried to wipe with a wet cloth, something on the wood rubbed off, and it became a lighter spot. Now we don't dare use it at all. But will need to. What do you recommend we put on this table to prevent stains. This is a current dining table sold at RH if you need more info. I have no idea what type of wood it is or how old. Thanks, Anne
  5. Sometimes you never know what kind of call you are going to get about woodworking. When folks find out you do woodworking they always have a project that "won't take much" and want you to do it for them. I really enjoy building new projects and I really don't like re-doing old furniture. I love old furniture but I am not a restorer. Anyway I got a call from a very good friend that said he had gotten this old dresser years ago from passed down from his great grandfather and it just needs a little glue here and there and wanted to know if I could fix it for him. Well I told him to drop it by and I would see when I could work it in. Oh my, this is going to need a lot more than just a little glue here and there. Several of the drawers are missing the bottoms and all of them are going to have to be put back together. And I will say the old hand cut dovetails are pretty neat, but I don't want to have to start making new pieces to match up. Looks to me like these never had any glue on them. But wait it gets better. This is the good side of the chest and it appears to be made of oak. Nice panels that are solid wood. But then when I saw the other side. Yea, no wonder the drawers weren't sitting in there straight. The guides are missing for both of the large drawers. Well I told him I could make the panels and put the side back but he could finish it. He told me he wanted me to finish it but he didn't want to change the old look of the chest. I am not sure how you finish it old distressed, but I am sure I will come up with something. The front of the drawers looks to be made of something other than Oak.. I couldn't really tell if they were Maple or Cherry or something else completely. Anyway I guess it will be something neat to restore. I would rather see it back in use than to go to the burn pile. Oh and it is also going to need all new hardware, something period correct. I am thinking this may be late 1800's or possible early 1900's. Any ideas? Just a little glue here and there and she should be ready to go! LOL
