  1. Antique Ice Chest Restoration

    This project started with a colleague asking if I might be interested in cleaning up an old chest that he was going to take to the dump… Buried deep in the back corner of his garage on the farm was this dirty heavily painted ice chest. I first noticed some of the carving near the top and the rot...
  2. Whats behind the door? Closet restoration

    This closet has been on my to-do-list for awhile. Our house being build 80 years ago needed some updated plumbing a while ago. The closet has been stud walls since. Today was the day to make it useable again. I began by removing all the old nails that would be in my way. I then placed some...
  3. Kids' Rocking Chair - Repair.

    We've had a couple of kids' rocking chairs for many years now. Technically, they were supposed to be teddy bear rocking chairs, but somehow the kids refused to accept that. They were originally put together with small nails, which-as you can imagine-more or less utterly failed to hold them...
  4. A restored Broken Axe (Gibson Guitar)

    Someone must have gone crazy, & destroyed this Guitar. My Son acquired this Gibson Guitar, which was a piece of junk, real cheap. He was planning on buying a new neck for it, & refinish the body. The body was a Gibson experiment. it was made from a wood composite, similar to hardboard. The...
  5. Morris rocking chair repair and restoration

    I haven't seen another Morris chair quite like this one. It's a Binghampton rocker from 1915 and was a wedding present to my great grandparents. It was passed down through the family to my mom. In 1969 my brother and I were doing what brothers do and broke the chair back. There was much weeping...
  6. Saved benches

    This one kept be busy. I did a project for a friend of my wife a month or so ago finishing and routing her logo on a rustic bench for her restaurant. She was very happy with the job. Then she told my wife that she had three more at her cabin that is headed for the landfill or the burn pile. My...

  8. Carving Chisel Restorations

    There just isn't anything better than a bucket full of old chisels! I recently was able to acquire a large assortment of vintage-ish carving chisels. These were certainly not, and never would be museum pieces or particularly collectible. The entire collection had obviously spent a great deal of...
  9. Hatchet Restoration With Bodark Handle

    This is a hatchet restoration with a Bodark handle from a local tree I've had curing for a while. I found the axe head while metal detecting on my property. It was in very bad shape and initially I didn't know if it was worth restoring. After several days soaking in rust remover and a lot...
  10. Walnut Deck Tables

    My in-laws asked for a pair of side tables for their deck for Christmas last year. I told them I was swamped at the time but would make them after the beginning of the year. I was shooting to have them done by spring. So close! We rented a cabin with them in the Smoky Mountains last year and...
  11. Maple Burl Bowl

    This bowl is 13" x 3" and is my first attempt at turning larger projects. As you can see from the photos, there are a lot of bark inclusions along with the burl which gives the bowl its distinctive look.
  12. The top is done!

    Hi all, finally the top is done. I won't say much about the process as you all know it already :) Here is the final look of it. It did take me a bit longer as I expected but never mind. So enjoy.
  13. antique repairs ... an appreciation

    well, sometimes we all get so caught up in making new stuff that we can forget the pleasure and learning opportunities that can be gleaned from repairing old stuff. recently, some of my favorite clients emailed to tell me that the 20 pound weight that drives the 1840's works of their aaron...
  14. 1750 barn restoration

    This is an english barn that we restored, By far the most challenging project I have ever done. The original barn was built circa 1750 on a stone foundation. it was then moved about 1/4 mile to its current location about 1800 due to flooding [ it was built next to a river] They never put a...
  15. Veneering a column, restoration of an english regency rosewood center table.

    We received a restoration at the workshop, Antique Refinishers, San Diego, and the column had been re-veneered with contact cement and the wrong wood. As it was a neat project and it is the second time we are veneering columns (see my post on our Biedermeier table project) in the last 2...
  16. Antique Saw Rehab

    (I do hope this project fits the forum rules! I did read them, and puzzled over whether this project counts… If not, I apologize! Don't want to ruffle any feathers, since I love this site!) Inspired by other discussions on this site, I went to look at an old saw that I had lying around up in...

    I love the grain in this board. It's red oak.

  19. Antique church pew--restoration & repurpose

    After the remodel of the kitchen last year, SWMBO decided that a new dining set was in order. In the course of many discussions, she came up with the idea of using an old church pew as wall seating. I found a corner pew on Craigslist that looked like it would work for a reasonable price, so...
  20. Box #9

    The guy I bought this wood from said it was Machiche - I'll have to take his word for it. I wanted to make a top with opposing doors and this is what I came up with. Piano hinges made more sense on this one and I also used chains to keep the doors open at a certain point. The whole box is...
