So last Friday, I spent most all afternoon and evening performing a series of small jobs for my step-father. The main one was repairing his clothes dryer plus a mixed bag of other things...while picking up my tools in the laundry room, he disappeared for a bit...when I went to check on him, he had pulled these off the fire place mantel where they've "resided" for years. He handed them to me and said "I want you to have these if you want them?" They belonged to his grandfather (a carpenter by trade)... This is not a tool gloat (well maybe just a little), but I was overwhelmed to receive this as family heirlooms...Thanks for looking! I think the one on the left is mahogany??? The one on the right is hard maple. Both are in remarkable good condition for being ~125-150 years old Notice the heavy layers of leather strapping put in place to cushion your hand. Also I'm assuming the optional add on leg bolt to adjust the fence position I think both f these might have been used to cut window sash moldings and also for some trim work as they both have multiple cutters some with a degree of profile The only markings on either were on this one..."great-grandfather's" initials stamped in one end.
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.
