Glue for pine with lots of pitch - 1 reply
I am working on a table for an historic site, using some old heart pine with a lot of pitch (smells great). I am concerned about glue choice due to the amount of rosin in some areas. This is old wood so I am not concerned about it liquifying. Titebond 1,2,3; hide, PU, epoxy ?? Top is 1- 1/8” and the table could see heavy loads...

Repair on leg of very expensive antique - 9 replies
I have been asked to repair a cracked rear leg on a late 1700’s mahogany highboy that is in a local historic site. I have repaired a couple of other items successfully so they think I can do anything. In this case, the piece has been appraised in the low 6 digits, so naturally I am very cautious. The legs are cabriole and the rear one...

Tool ID ? - 2 replies
This little rule belonged to my great grandfather (1857-1952), who I can barely recall ( I’m 72). I have had it since I was a kid but have never understood its function.

removing wedged tenons - 1 reply
I’m trying to restore an old bench that has been on an open porch for about 40 years. The joints in the seat need to be reglued and will require jointing. The major problem is that the 4 main spindles of the back are wedge tenoned into the seat. The minor spindles will pop out easily if I can get the main ones out. I can’t pop ...
