  1. 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. Restored Tilt Top Table

    Restored tilt top table for a friend. All three legs had to reattached, which led to some creative clamping (second picture). There were also many bits that had simply broken off over time.

  4. Refinished Piano Stool

    I got this off a guy on Craigslist for $75 a few months back. It was a present for my girlfriend. All of the glue in the leg joints had dried out and the legs were wobbly, and the entire thing was painted with thick, black paint - even the glass balls on the claw feet. The paint was all...

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    A work friend had a table and chairs she used when she was a kid. She is now a grandmother of 2 and wants her grandchildren to have a place to sit and play when they are over. I am happy she saved it and got it refinished as opposed to throwing it out and buying a new one from ikea. I sanded...
