  5. Welcome to Patriot woodworker Nicoleb. You have found a great site to find out about woodworking. There are many folks on here that are one of a kind. They can answer your questions about wood working or many other things. I like your game table. You found a good one. Maybe I'm due for some good luck. Work on it when you get a chance and take a few pictures to keep us updated. Don't talk to my wife, she thinks I'm outdated. I'll try and keep her around another 57 years. I find old tables at garage sales or where ever. I found a corner table in the junk pile at one garage sale. It was beat beyond belief. There was cig burns all over and white stuff in the drawer. I brought it back to life and it in use in our home. I don't know how old it is but I think it is fairly new. It took a lot of sanding and it had a lot of indents. It sat in my shop for a year and when I was up to it I would work on it. It is worth a lot but only to me. I have fixed up several old tables and have a couple in ,y house yet and have given a few to my kids. I need to take before and after pictures, some of them are hard to believe. Kep us posted on the table> Preston
  6. Now I don't know what size to buy. What size do you have shown? I may go with 3/4 to 1 ". Preston
  7. Thanks for showing how to do this. Now where do I go to buy the tools to make my own? Preston
  8. John: That is the best sandpaper I have ever used. If it was made for steel-so be it. Thanks Preston
  9. Thanks for responding It is about 80 grit. I have had other of the same color but different grits but the same blue color. I sure like it. It last a long time. It was in some stuff I got at a garage sale. Preston
  10. I need some help to find out who made this sandpaper. I think it is cloth backed and very thick. It is blue and has numbers 402 2 on the back.( there is a space between the 2s) I will try and enclose a pic. Preston
  11. I use a 6" fire hose between my ears! Preston
  12. I have some left over spray construction foam, wonder it that would work? It's about $8.00 a can. A foam filled at a local tire store is aprox $30.00. Preston
  13. Has anyone ever used some of the techniques to make a flat free tire like on a wheelbarrow or a garden cart? I did a google search and found some but ! Preston
  14. I renamed HIM, not sir but SUR for survivor. Preston
  15. This is the only survivor of an old plum orchard. The house was built in 1935. I'm assuming the tree was planted about then. I remodeled the house in 1999 and the tree was still going strong. I have a lot of people stop and stare when driving. Every now & then I get an offer. One of these days when my wood pile gets low. I have never gotten any wood off the tree but I graze on the plums like my beef.
