  1. Hello All, I have been gone for a minute during my wife's recovery but now I am back in the groove. I had a great time sharing my band saw restoration but now I have a new project. I picked up a Nepalese Brown Bess musket "Kit" from IMA-USA and have started restoration.This is one of the many Nepal Cache weapons I have purchased from International Military Arms. The Nepal Cache weapons were found in an abandoned palace in Kathmandu Nepal and Chris Kramer from IMA purchased the lot from the Nepal government. There was thousands of weapons from the 1700' up to WW2 to be boxed up shipped. Included in this cache were weapons from Brown Bess Muskets up to Lewis machine guns. This is where my Bess originated. What you get in the kit is a reproduction wood stock that is carved from North Indian Rosewood. I call this wood by it's little know Latin name "Woodius Sumbitch" mainly because this is a hardwood with soft spots and it likes to splinter. That is why you will frequently hear me say you "Sumbitch". Now the stock is about 90% complete and it will take some work to fit all the metal parts . The problem with fitting parts is the stock is inletted for a modern reproduction Bess. The metal parts I have were hand forged over 200 years ago so parts do not fit. One must have patience when tacling a project such as this. The first pictures in this post show the condition of the parts before I started and then the rest show parts after being soaked in Evaporust. If you are interested in seeing the Nepal cache story, watch this video called "Treasure is where you find it" . I will post pictures as I progress with my work. After soaking in the rust remover.
  2. Hey folks, I have couple very heavy timbers. The one I planed a little bit to expose the color is about 24" long and 12"x12". It weighs about 80 lbs, very heavy. The timber on the floor is twice as long and twice as heavy. Very dense. The timbers are about 50 years old. I have been told what the original owner says it is, but without any influence, I wondered if you guys can tell me what species this is. Thanks for any help.
  3. I seem to have a few of the squares in use...some big, some tiny... Maybe Moody can suggest a name for some of these....the HUGE one in the back IS a Stanley...10" of steel blade. The rest? The "Three Diamonds" square was from my dad's tool box. This little fellow is a Swanson 6" combo. Just to show how big some of these are. Been using a few of these in the Chest Of Drawers project.. So...any guesses about who made what? Rosewood,Brass, and Steel Co.?

    My friend Chip brought me back a piece of Cocobolo from a cruise to the Panama Canal. It had 2 birds in it.
  5. Seems that every year about this time we have super special projects that we are working on. These projects are from our hearts by our own hands. We know we do it. We want to do it. Share with us your super special gift for this year. As for me, it has come to my attention that a shut-in here in town has very little and doesn't normally "celebrate" the season (ok - Christmas). I am making her a Lichterbogen for her and hoping to "brighten" up her holiday.
