  1. Old Round Table Restoration

    Old Round Table Restoration I was given the task to restore and paint an old round table and put a mirror on the top. 1. First I remove all the brass hardware - fix all broken and misaligned parts and sand the table to remove the old varnish 2. I cover the newly exposed wood with two coats of...
  2. Restored Cattle Herding Cane

    This old boy is easily 40 years old. My granddad used to use this when he moved cattle, and I used it when I had ankle surgery. I took it upon myself to fill in the cracks, sand it down and finish it up! Also, originally it did not have a cap on the end, it was just a stick for hitting...
  3. Bench fit for a Cabin

    Well, it's going somewhere but it's not going anywhere…. My SIL asked me to make a bench for my BIL; stating that he has always wanted one for their mountain cabin in New Mexico. She knew I dabbled in woodworking and trusted me enough to come up with something after showing me a couple ideas...
  4. Renovated Jointer Plane

    I was given this Jointer Plane around one year ago. It had been lying on the ground in a metal scrap yard and would have been destroyed. I cleaned it from the dried in mud using a scotchbrite pad, then coated it in boiled Linseed Oil. The blade was a bit rusty, but after cleaning and sharpening...
  5. Renovated Wooden Plane

    I picked up this old ECE plane at a market for 2 euros. It was water damaged but well dried out. The sole had separated in some locations and a few cracks in the body. The blade was very rusty. I cleaned the body, filled the gaps with CA glue and dust from flattening the sole on a sanding sheet...
  6. Renovated Wooden Scrub Plane

    Another wooden plane I picked up for 2 Euros. Just some light cleaning to the body, but the blade needed a fair bit of work. I fixed the lose handle and flattened the sole. It works really great now :)
  7. Barn Wood Clock

    Had this cool barn board that I wanted to display, but it's kinda weird to just place a board on the wall. So I made it into a clock! The board has been in the barn floor in the haymow for around 80 years. I just thought the grain on the board was good looking enough to be justified as a stand...
  8. Old wooden Russian hand plane restoration

    I bought this hand plane 7 years ago in order to work while renovating the flat I was living in. I had very little money at the time and paid 2 Euros for it and an old worn down oil stone. I probably had about enough money left to eat that day. I sharpened the blade as best as I could and used...
  9. Renovated old wooden German hand plane

    I bought this old wooden plane at a market for 3 Euros, but I had stored it away and never looked at it until today. I gave the body a light cleaning and oiling, flattened the sole and sharpened the blade. It has been knocked about a lot through its life and I decided to leave it as original as...
  10. Well Wayne is this some kind of rabbit plane or what?

    I got this from the lady I bought my Lathe from. She said I don't know what this is but here take this. But as far as I know it could be an ice skate sharpener. I've never used it and just keep moving it around the shop. Is it worth anything? What is it, do you know? In many circles they call me...
  11. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Sliding Door

    Here's a recent build I did using different barn woods from our lot. The customer picked out all of the different pieces at the lot and then I ripped them, jointed the back side, and brad-nailed/adhered them to the birch plywood. when it was fully assembled, our finish guy did a great lacquer...
  12. Intarsia Mule, I Still Don’t know why I Made This?

    First of all I really still don't know why I made this piece??? For my birthday my wife gave me a gift certificate to use, but on a few conditions. I could only use it for a piece that was not for sale, or for a gift, and only for my enjoyment to make. Her conditions came from the fact I told...
  13. Odd Corner Entertainment (Floating) Stand

    My mother wanted a place to put the TV on the fireplace wall and needed a custom piece. A little rough but I learned a lot in the process. It's anchored to the wall on the left side and uses the fireplace ledge for support on the right side. The height and width of the LCD threw a wrench in...

  15. Mystery Plane

    I go to the Big Smoke around once a month to buy supplies. The nearest town to the farm where I live don't have what I need. It takes the best part of a day and I always make it a point to stop in at one or two junk shops. You just never know what might lurk in the shadows! The proprietor of one...

  17. Contemporary Reclaimed Barn Wood Side Table

    This contemporary table was one I built for fun. It's made from a reclaimed white oak "door buck" (threshold) from a stack we have at the yard. It's 3" thick and 24"x24". The cube is a 24"x24"x24" steel frame I welded and then had chrome dipped. It's a very simple design. I like having all the...
  18. Late 1800s Trunk Restore

    This was my first and very frustrating antique restore
  19. Late 19th Century Mirror Restore

    This mirror was my Great Great Grandmother's and I have personally had this for over 40-years, and for the last 30-years or so I could no longer hang it from the wall. The wood from the original frame had deteriorated so much that some of it felt like styrofoam and some had been eaten by a worm...
  20. Just Another Old Door, Or Not.

    I got my hands on a few old doors, some were antique, some were not. Based on the holes for the knobs, this one appears to be from the 40s or 50s. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, so I took the top panel out and put some shelves in the hole. The rest was just trial and lots of...
