  1. Wood & Lumber
    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had any insight to what this wood might be. It was sold to me as walnut by a sawyer that was going out of business who really didn't mind what he threw into the back of my truck for $200 (which included giant 20/4 and 14/4 slabs). So what say you, walnut...
  2. Scrollsawing
    Hi All! I'm from the UK and this is my first post here by the way! I've just started getting interested in woodworking and scrolling, so please forgive my lack of knowledge. I picked up this old rusty scroll saw at a car boot sale (yard sale?) this morning for £15 (about $23). It's nothing...
  3. Hand Tools
    I recently ran across this CraigsList add that had some old tools for sale. What caught my eye was the saw in the picture below. What do you guys think any ideas on what it is or if its worth restoring? I did some google searching and think it may be a 8" Tyzack dovetail saw pictured here...

    I am helping a friend of ours list some of her father's wood furniture as her mother just passed and she's selling the house. Her father made some really cool pieces and you can go through the house and kinda see how he made a piece of furniture to match something iconic or recognizable for the...

    I am attempting to identify the wood species for boards that I recently discovered in a barn hay-mow floor. The only details that I know are that the wood boards are 12"-15" wide and were retrieved from a barn in the former black-swamp area of Northwest Ohio. Any suggestions on a species...

    Hi All, Long time lurker, first time poster. I came across this clamp in a segmented bowl turning video, and I have no idea what it's called or where I can get some… Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Wood & Lumber
    Happy 4th everyone! A friend's dad cut down some trees in his backyard and was splitting them into firewood. I told him to send me a picture of it so he did and I'm wondering if someone can help me identify what wood this is and if it'd be worth trying to turn some of this into lumber? I know...
  8. Hand Tools
    I recently picked up an antique try square at an estate sale. There are no markings on it besides a hand engraved "CC Woods" (assuming a previous owner). The brass inlays look similar, but not identical, to Disston and Stanley. Does anyone know the manufacturer or even a date range this...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    i just got this and it has no name at all anywhere. the motor looks like it's unrelated. this is a very small bandsaw. only a few feet high. It would be nice to know the name and history but i mostly need info for rebuiding and if the parts are original or rigged…which the wheels look like...

    Hi Wood lovers - I came upon some "trash" wood with some casters attached (not sure what it once was) in a dumpster, but the wood seemed in great shape with some good character beneath. When I got it home and sanded it down, I was AMAZED at the figuring on these boards. Problem is I can't for...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Hey all, a friend of mine gave me a few boards of this wood, he didn't know what it was buts its really nice. Its a dense, light colored wood with golden brown stripes see picture… I've looked online but I can't find anything that looks like it except for Zebrawood but not even close in color...

    Ok… I got this #3 plane at a flea market, maker unknown. Heck, I've got PTAMPIA vol I & II, and a dozen other plane reference books. I thought I was invincible. BUT… no dice on finding a comparable photo in any book!!! DonW suggested "Defiance" but I cannot find a picture to corroborate...

    A neighbor gave me this wood. It was a crate from India, he said there were hundreds of these crates delivered to his business. It's highly figured, and has ribbons of grain. It has a light reddish hue. Wish I had more, but apparently they think it is crappy wood. I only have enough to do...
  14. Wood & Lumber
    I have four boards pictured here that I think are of the same wood. I got them from somebody on Craigslist who was clearing up his later father's garage. He thought it was Cedar. Now, I hope it is Cedar, because I would love to use it for an outdoor project. This storage bench as from Wood...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    I am curious what kind of wood this turning blank is, and I can't trust the source so I figured I would ask the community.
  16. Hand Tools
    I had a really neat opportunity this past weekend to buy some tools. I recently decided to start going backwards (forward?) a bit and start introducing hand tools into my projects. I love to buy and restore antiques, and search Craigslist a lot. I called a guy up about a Stanley 45, but it was...

    I picked up some wood at an estate sale and I'd appreciate some help IDing it. First: Second: Third: Thanks!
  18. Hand Tools
    I bought a couple of mitre boxes in the recent past, and I'm trying to identify them and possibly determine value. Any help anyone can provide would be much appreciated. The first box is made by Arrowheart Industries of Detroit, MI. It's a compound mitre box, which is a difficult thing to...
  19. Hand Tools
    Hey guys, I'm new here, and basically created this account for this reason alone. I want some help to identify some hand planes owned by my Great-Grandfather. Well, less identify and more categorize and give me a range of when they were bought and used. For what reason you ask? Why, my good sir...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    I have some wood that I'm reclaiming from a piece of furniture that I need help to identify. It's very dense and tight grained. When I clean it with mineral spirits it appears very dark brown, a lot like a teak, darker than the rosewood I've used. When I cut it or sand it, the sawdust...
