  1. I think I may have posted this story before when this web site was just getting started. Many years ago my wife asked me to either toss an old chest or paint it. I asked her what color and she suggested that I antique it. Which I did. She filled it up with her crafts, quits and other fabric things. Fast forward 30 (?) years. It is looking kinda bad and she suggested I toss it so she can find a new, nice one. I told her that I wanted to try stripping it and look at the wood. After I got it down to near bare wood, I noticed a red original finish on it. That puzzled me. I asked about it and
  2. I made this Americana Uncle Sam more than 30 years ago. I take him in the fall, so that the snow/ice don't ruin him. Yesterday we had winds above 70 mph and down he went.Glue joints broke and some of the wood had dry rot. "To save Sam or not" was the question". I don't know of any glue that will hold dry rot then I looked way back in my cabinet and found some Gorilla glue all purpose. It looks and acts just like Goop. So here he is, all gooped, screwed and clamped up. I doubt he can take another fall, so this time I'll hold him down better. I may wait till winter to repaint him.......if h
  3. Had a thought this morning while reading another post on tools and someone said old. So this post is about the oldest "known" hand tool in your shop. Yes I have some wooden planes and moulding planes that must be older than my Dad would have been but the only old tool I have a reasonable knowledge of age is a pair of blacksmith tweezers my Dad made when he was a kid . Now I would say about 90 years. So what is the oldest known hand tool in your shop?
  4. I'd like to ask, if anyone can come up with the oldest known woodworker in our earths history. This woodworker needs a name, it cannot be a segment of a society, nor an era of our worlds history such as any of the Big Era's and it cannot be a people in a region such as "The Egyptians". I am looking for a name, it can be in literature of fiction as well, drama, poetry, and of course non-fiction. You can use any venue of research you like, google and such. Yes this is a challenge! No prize at the end, just fun debate.
  5. OK as a lot of you may know, I am a huge fan of Titebond and its family of glues. I use it quite a bit when I am making pieces to turn, especially for the tops I make. This does not require a lot of glue though, so the glue sits around for an extended period of time, which causes it to age and get clumpy, or at the very least, thicker than it was when I bought it. Can you add anything to the glue like say water, to get it flowing again without destroying the glue properties?? Thanks.
  6. Look at the link below please as I am going to see this lathe today. It doesn't look too bad and it's about what I have been looking for. I am thinking with the oil ports it most likely has sleeve bearings. Do you think I can still get bearings for it? If can get bearings for the lathe it might be worth getting. One big problem I could have is the lathe is in a basement and with neuropathy, in my feet and legs, it might be too much. Comments wanted and advice is welcome. https://nashville.craigslist.org/tls/d/antique-lathe-and-older-table/6706426342.html
  7. I was contacted by a Navy buddy about his wooden hand plane. He was interested in what it might be worth. I know it is difficult to say without a detailed description and hands on. Here is what I know- About 28" long Blade is stamped with Thomas Firth and sons The body has a stamp of W. Hoger- he said this is very hard to read He sent me these 2 pix- Any information and help will be greatly appreciated. Lew
  8. Inspired by an experienced member on another forum to clean up some rust I renewed my search for an older 6" jointer...so I Google "jointer for sale" and one pops up way the heck out in Connecticut. I send the gentleman an email and he responded with "somebody's gonna look at it Tuesday...I'll let you know"... Since it was the only 6" I dropped it for other interests...and a potful of pain in my lower back... While discussing my situation with a good friend on Sunday, and that I did not go to Connecticut to look at the jointer, another one pops up on Craigslist. This one appearing, by
  9. From a few bits of Pine, and a bit of plywood for the shelf.. Top is from a 2x10 from a thrown out waterbed frame... Before the matching pine top was added... And then after the top was added. Just a little table. The Boss has "Table-napped" this one for the bedroom. Unsure why... Just some past work of mine. There was a time, when I could reuse the Cedar 2xs from an old PinNic Table.. As my Daughter wanted a TV Stand. IF you look closely, you might just see a "Dutchman" or two. Needed them to cover the carriage bolt holes.
  10. I made this old doll house more than 30 years ago. It sat in storage for about the last 20 and got damaged. I spent the morning replacing shingles, bricks, etc. Each brick, shingle,, siding are single pieces glued on. I even cut each shutter angle piece and made my own. I must of had a lot more patience then As you can see, I have a new tenant.
  11. Some of you know that me and my family bought my grandparents farm house, ive been busy trying to balance free time and get crud done time and its been tough for me to stay on task. Any way, colder weather is on its way here in Wi so i decided to stat putting together a small shop down in the basement. Well for years I've seen this homemade contraption and could never figure out what it was till about 15 minutes ago.
