I recently completed this easy project and thought I would share the steps I took to make it. I’ve had a handful of railroad spikes for a while, and finally decided I should use them to make a coat rack. I started by removing the rust from the spikes. I soaked them in plain white vinegar overnight. After pulling them out and giving a light scrub with a wire brush, they looked like this. There were still bits of rust on them, so after another nights soak, I scrubbed again and r...
After the approval from my wife that the re-sizing of the table was good today I started the finishing process. I wont ramble to much on this one, just a few more pictures of the progress today. I decided to go with one of my favorite finishes and make it look more rustic and weathered. I will skip the picture of sanding just because im pretty sure nobody is interested in seeing all that anyhow… So here I just finished applying my extremely dark tee mix. I used 4 black tee bags...
So…after being stuck with this table because the clients I was building this for ended up separating I decided it was time to get back to work on it and see if I can interest someone else in the table. Over the last few weeks I have been contemplating what to do with this piece; either continue on the original plan of the high bars stool type kitchen table or go a different route and make it a little more friendly to the typical house hold. I really like the original plan and was ve...
Building for the wife. A project that started with my great great grandmother’s traditional sideboard. Though not particularly valuable, this maple buffet cabinet dates as far back as the civil war era. It was produced in a shop that probably sold a good number of them. The front and sides were well finished, the back, bottom, and inside of the cupboard were rather course in appearance. The cabinet was efficiently assembled and the construction did not rely on glue. I do not know w...

I posted the other day a completed project I made for the wife’s birthday. She has now populated the rack, so here is what it was designed to look like in use: Note that on some of the spools there is a bobbin containing the same thread. This was the key ingredient: she wanted to keep the bobbins with the spools providing the thread and color. I wasn’t surprised to see that she doubled up on bobbins for some of them. I asked her if she would want to do this before starting ...
I suppose that I will never be accused of 'rushing through' things.Even when I seem to get something done quickly, many times I wind up going back and making changes in order to improve on it. I think this can be a good thing, but sometimes I wonder if it is counter productive or not.It is something that I can't really help. Often times, I will make something that is really good, and then either while I am writing the pattern for it or making additional pieces, I realize tha...
