In this blog I am going to give you a how to on my metallic finish of copper patina and rust application on wood As you can see I started with a small vessel that has been hollowed. This vessel is about 5 inches in heigh. I only want to rust the top as I am going to copper patina the base. The rust paint is a paint from Michaels which is a hobby store here in the USA. The paint is very thick and contains metal flake. It is put on very heavy and allowed to dry. Here I have applied...

not much to see yet – i found a very rusty draw knife at an antique store and talked them down from $5 to $3 – here it is, as found…
I just signed w/Lumberjocks…I have a new Steel City table saw, model 35990C, and am concerned about table top rust. My saw is kept in my unheated Wisconsin garage, and the temperature/humidity can have fairly wide fluctuations. I read a few entries concerning Zerust anti-rust liners, particularly the Zerust lined plywood cover made by CueballRosendaul. My question is: Has anyone used Zerust liners for rust protection?...and…Does it seem to work? I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, I finally got out in the shop for the first time in 2013! I covered my tools with tarps to slow the winter rust. It wasn’t too bad. A little surface rust on the tables. Nothing some WD-40, T-9, and paste wax couldn’t handle. I also decided to remove the Rockler router table from my table saw. I could never get the height right. It made it hard to cut accurately.I am still going to use the router table, but build a new dedicated base for it. I upgraded my lighting this wint...
I desperately want a drawknife. They’re difficult to find here in South Africa.I found and bought one that’s in pretty shocking condition. For the equivalent of $18.So my only hope to own a functional drawknife is to repair / recondition / restore the one I have.Despite how crazy it is I’m not just going to do the minimum to get a working tool out of it, i’m going to re-imagine the whole thing. Nothing major like going from straight to curved blade shape. But since i w...
A good friend of mine came across this old vise. It was rusted a bit when he got it. We didn’t get any pictures of it in its original condition though. I recommended he use the molassas method of de-rusting it. He did that for a couple of weeks. We then took it to the car wash to spray it off and then dry it off. He scrubbed it a bit, then lubricated it a bit to loosen up a few joints and it works like a charm. I’ve never seen one of these quick-release mechanisms bu...

We had a new family move in on our street a few weeks ago, & since they were downsizing from their previous house, they had a lot of stuff they just didn’t want anymore which they ended up just putting in the garage. So, one thing led to another and I got a old table saw. It’s a 1973 Craftsman saw with a 1.5HP 3450 rpm hp induction motor. The top has a moderate amount of rust, most of which was removed in about 10 mins with a wire brush. There’s still some left, which...
I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80’s Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50” table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking things apart I have these observations… The Biesemeyer fence is really rugged…. tube is straight as and arrow, even after some rough handling, and the ‘L’ brackets are really rugged… must ...
