Old Danish hobby workbench - croissants, espresso and beer...

11-14-2016 12:21 AM by mafe | 28 comments »

Old Danish hobby workbenchcroissants, espresso and beer… No into needed, so let’s jump right into the story: This blog starts in my small kitchen back home. So it could be about croissants and espresso or a few of my handmade knifes… Or of friends like Flemming that show up and bring joy in my life. I’ll give you a clue, if you did not read the headline… My friend Flemming left, so we will talk about the stranger in the kitchen…Yes I guess...

Tools that came from my great grandfather.

08-16-2010 04:48 AM by GregP | 19 comments »

These are all tools that came from my great grandfather, I’m a fourth generation woodworker and when my great grandpa died a lot of his tools got spread out between my grandpa, my dad, my uncle and me. Some pieces also “disappeared” I’m awfully curious about some of the things I ended up with. A lot of the big things like the lathe are self-explanatory but I’m very curious about the history of these items, many of them are unmarked or minimally marked so it’...

Someone wanted to be cursed, someone needed to be nursed

05-31-2011 10:38 AM by Sodabowski | 18 comments »

Well today the postsman took me out of bed with an unexpected parcel. Having nothing pending from ebay, I was wondering WTH it was and whom it could come from. At first sight, something a bit heavy, tightly packed in bubblewrap. Okay let’s open that box. And then… GAH! Mads strikes again! And now I see why he had told me that I would curse him hahaha :D This old chap really needs some caring, everything is rusted, even the bolts inside the handles.No problem, I ha...

Mystery tools; non-woodworking

03-23-2010 08:13 PM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of just a few from a box of tools that have just been donated to the museum where I do voluntary work. They’re mostly in cast brass. My thoughts were that they’re for decorative plaster work. Can anyone confirm? Any other ideas?Tiles are 6” to give a guide as to sizes.

Car-boot sale treasures #2: Yorkshire tool gloat

08-24-2010 12:03 AM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

It’s not as if I don’t have planes, but confronted by these two (A Stanley #4 and a Record #5) yesterday at a local car boot sale (flea market?), what could I do but buy them? Especially when the vendor dropped the price before I’d even had chance to haggle. Five pounds for the two seemed more than reasonable. Seven dollars 75 cents is a rough conversion. The #5, especially, is somewhat knocked about, but think of the hours of pleasure I’ll get in resurrecting t...

"This Old Mold House" #5: Hind sight is genius ! My crystal ball...

11-22-2007 06:10 PM by Dusty | 13 comments »

Of course, hindsight is genius. Duh. Let me take a minute to gloat. It was July 20 2006, when I first took a weekend and worked up plans, bids and did a comprehensive analysis of “This Old Mold House” and a possible offer. After extensive work I met with the owner’s son-in-law to present my findings and conclusions. I worked very hard to make the numbers work. That is, I really wanted to buy the house for remodeling and resale. However, because I didn’t have a ready buy...

old growth table

09-21-2007 06:16 AM by Bob Babcock | 13 comments »

I’ve always been fascinated by large trees. I remember as a kid being amazed by them. I was 12 years old when my mother and I went out to visit my brother in Calif. We took a ride up to see the sequoia’s. What an amazing feeling to walk amongst them. I still carry it with me to this day. My daughters think i’m a little weird. My oldest daughter went to Salve Regina in Newport for awhile and during every visit I would walk the campus admiring the extraordinary tree collect...

Local Finds

11-24-2007 07:44 PM by RobS | 11 comments »

“The inner compasses of the mind must encircle the whole quantity of material beforehand” – medieval poet Geoffrey de Vinsauf. Here’s a few before shots, as in before I know what I want to make with them…. ..and… That’s a soda can in the middle for reference… • In the forefront are two old pieces of wood that I found next to a creek, they may be old bridge boards as they had several 20 penny nails in them, are almost 3 inches thick, almost 12 inches wide and...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

08-06-2013 02:35 AM by FreezFurn | 10 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...
