How many guys in your crew?
Myself and an old man(68 this April). It's rough sometimes. These were "easy" to get out, a little heavy. Each square sash is about 5'8" and the arch is about 8foot tall.
I'm building character😂
Well, you do great work on cool projects. Keep it up. It's great to have a channel like this where the younger guys can see what work should be.
Anyone have any good recommendations for a well made quality axe?
Snow & Neally
The Hudson Bay?
I have the wood axe and the hatchet. Well made and good price
I have been researching them lately and swedish companies seem to be a good option also but most are out of stock due to their popularity. Also they tend to be more expensive. Thanks for the input.
@Gunn Clan - NC#6897 there’s also Gransfors Bruks, but he’s pretty expensive I think
That is what I was going for until I realized how hard its going to be to find one. The waiting list is several months.
Check out these beautiful windows.
Presbyterians did a great job.
Wow,those are absolutely Gorgeous!!!
Are you serious? These windows are racist.
only white people...?
Haha I'm kidding guys. I reckon they'd kick me out of IE if I was serious.
They are stunning.
Stained glass art is like the window version of a symphony orchestra.
Haha I was so confused.
I'll give it to that church, those are backlit. So when you walk in they look blacked out. They aren't exterior windows.
The shading on the individual panes is bananas.
Central Presbyterian church, 318 West Kentucky St, Louisville, KY 40203. They would love to have you there Sunday morning.😉
I didn't work on those just the ugly yellow tinted hammered glass ones.
Your work is always top notch brother
I'm looking for woodworkers to help me with an IE project
@RevStench are either of you interested in hearing more details?
Would you like to know more?
Oh, just this little guy:
I just watched that movie last night. Must be my destiny
If anyone can do it bro, its you.
Top secret but it will be filled with IE guys.
Hahaha that would be great. The Trojan IE horse.
No, reverse Trojan Horse. We'll put a bunch of tacos in it, and when the Mexicans get inside close the gates, and push it into Mexico
@Joseph McCarthy - NJ here's 2 tips for loosening a screw that's rusted and painted. Clean the paint off the screw head as best you can. Take a hammer or pliers and tap the butt of the screwdriver as you're twisting, creating an impact driver with your hand tools.
If it still won't come out you can tap the screw back and forth to loosen up the hole. Works the best in wood, but don't beat the crap out of it you don't want to waller out the hole to much. If you're going to a make a new hole or fill in the old one you can beat the hell out of it.
It's hard to get pictures with out a 3rd hand.
Thanks! I'll remember that next time Im dealing with one
Stairwell scaffolding. Not my favorite place to work. It's like being on a springboard.
Sweet old iron plane
How hard is it to use this stuff? Do you just attach to regular ply wood or some of that special board?
I'm honestly not sure. I've never worked with it. But in that pic is the same stuff. Looks just like brick and you don't notice it isn't stone unless you're really looking at, I had to touch it to just make sure😂
@JesseJames ok, so my boss said it installs just like vinyl siding. If you're doing it on the exterior of the house put on one or two layers of that water proof backing, it staples on. Then roofing nails to hang it.
He said it comes with j channels as well, so it sounds pretty simple.
Oh really? That's great news I thought it installed with some sort of adhesive.
It should go pretty fast once you get the hang of it. Don't forget to run level lines so everything can be as square as possible.
If that’s just a plastic substrate then yes should be able to fasten it or it locks in place. I wasn’t sure what it was. There are masonry fascades as well that are super thin veneers. I thought it may be that
For what? Cutting that stuff Jesse posted? I'd use a circular saw just like vinyl siding. And probably a miter saw for the j channel.
No wet saw needed was my real question
Word, if it was real stone then for sure.
Wet saw required
So I started to use this sand paper, it's good stuff, you don't have to clean it as often and it works a lot longer. Remeber if you're sand paper isn't sanding well clean if off with a wire brush and more out of it.
Wire brush I use
80 grit is all you need for wood if you're painting or staining.
I’ve been meaning to get an 80 grit brush
Seriously though I use 80 grit to clean my spark plugs too
I’ve been using the same little square for about 7 years I think lol
Hahah that's awesome. People tend to throw it away to soon.
I sand paint and epox a lot and you get that build up, you can see it in that picture of the used paper, I knock it off with a wire brush and it works almost as well as a new piece.
I use those little sanding pads, the foam ones, I get a good 6 months or so out of one by keeping it clean.
I finally finished those church windows. After I glazed it. Before paint.
Installed, all 3 sashes
Mines the middle one
From that pic it looks like someone just cleaned it haha
Oh and while I'm at it, if you see paint like this, don't eat it... it's 100% lead based
And this is beautiful.
This @here is an example of true Identarian craftsmanship guys; the sort of expertise that made our ancestors famous from the Renaissance of the 1500s to the Golden Age of the 1900s. Well done @RevStench. You’re an example to all of us.
That looks fantastic!
I only fixed the broken glass in the windows and made them functional again. We hung that crown molding. But that staircase is in incredible shape, quality craftsmanship. I figured you would appreciate it, the only work I did was replace the old worn out treads and that's it. The home was built in the late 1890s and a family with 14 kids lived there until the youngest died about 10 years ago.
@RevStench I'm a dumbass, dude, I never even thought to scrape the wood off of sandpaper
@John O - haha bro, we all are. I used to go through so much sand paper until I started working for this old guy.
Pro tip, I know I already showed this when there was a teaching channel, but if you chip a small sliver of wood off of pretty anything, don't have any glue or a small twist drill for a pilot hole. No problem.
Blunt the tip of nail, basically turning it into a cut nail(the old style that look like rail road spikes). It's better to cut the wood fiber than it is to separate it.
Put a little epox on it and paint. Strip it first, but good as new. 2 nails is over kill but it's a top sash so it takes a beating.
Check out how clever these old guys were.
Arched windows from the outside
<@&403278581272150016> Any links to plans for a wooden door awning/canopy? Not a Gable one, just a standard flat one with a slight downward angle. I've searched online extensively to no avail. If nothing's available I'll just figure it out, but I prefer to work off of plans. Thanks!
Something similar to this..
Nice I can make that work. Thanks!
Gf has been spending a lot of time on pintrest, so I decided to make this blanket ladder for her that she saw on there. Just need to sand it when the wood glue dries and then paint it
Good ole Pinterest.
@Envian sink those screws deep then take your wood glue and mix your sawdust with the glue and you can use that as a putty to cover your screws. Sand out and paint. It'll look like you didn't use any fasteners.
You should post more too.
I didn’t use any screws
I just drilled holes and glued in dowels
Yeah, I didn’t have much wood to work with for a while but now I’ve got quite a bit as you can see in the pic haha
That's cool man, that's what I like to see young guy's NOT gluing and screwing, you should post more haha. You ever use biscuits?
I haven’t needed to yet for any of the stuff I’ve made, but I would if the opportunity arises
Done sanding the glue and then I used bondo to fill in the cracks, so once that is dried I can sand one last time and paint
I use a wood epoxy, this stuff.
That's going to look good though
Yeah I hope so. My dad had bondo already and let me use it, so I didn’t have to buy any. It was a fun little project. I got a bunch of culled lumber recently for 90% off, but none of it is hard wood, so I’m just gonna make some signs and random things with it and try to sell them and make some money
Gonna be making some signs and some tables this weekend for my sisters graduation so hopefully I’ll have something worth posting
Make sure those tables are BASED, or they may fall over.
Going to finish these this weekend
Going to make the top and then sand and stain/paint
So far all the boards were 1xXxX that I cut down including the trim board at the bottom which I made myself
They look pretty sturdy
Almost done with it
Our garage stairs were built poorly and looked like trash, so my dad and I built in some more support and then put some timbertech composite deck boards on for the treads because I have a bunch of it just sitting around
We bought our house as a foreclosure and have flipped the entire house while living in it. We’ve done that a few times now with different homes we have lived in while moving across the country
Extremely trad, tbh
That's awesome man!
@Envian sweet bro, I'm glad your dad taught you how to be good at being a man. 😁
I posted these on another discord already, but I figured I’d share them here too. This is some before/after of our house. It’s a bit of a mess in the new pics because I took them right after my sisters grad party was over lol
My dad and I had to make the cabinet for the double oven from scratch when we moved the fridge over
We also made all of the cabinet doors ourself as a temporary solution while we paint and repair the old ones so that the hinges can be the kind that are hidden from the outside. We also have to make two extra doors to match the old ones for the new cabinet before we can put them back in
The hard part is that all the woodwork in the house was custom and finding a router bit that matches is seemingly impossible for some of the things we need to do
Bro, that looks good, is your dad a carpenter/cabinet maker? And yeah they make a million router bits but not that one you need.
I needed a bit to match the profile on old windows, you figure they would have one by now, but I have to do it by hand. I found the old plane they used on ebay, total game changer. I also picked up a Craftsman iron plane, it's 52 different planes in one. It's really neat.
Yeah he used to be a carpenter / stonemason but now him and I both work in technology
@Envian that's awesome, glad to see he's passing his skills down to you. Your kitchen cabinetry is beautiful.
Check this out, I was looking for a cheap purple Martin birdhouse, I found these sweet birdhouses for the middle class bird.
So here's an old hinge, these are extremely common. I run into them everywhere I go.
That's run of the mill stuff, what happened to pride in ones work? Why are they all polished metal these days, zero thought put in new ones. Who cares if it's hidden 90% of it's life.
Technology = lazy ass society
Probably half the reason we can't figure out how the ancient people moved massive stones. And built the "impossible".
Every show you watch or "expert talk" acts as our ancestors were dumber than us. We(modern people) are the dumb ones.
Like this, just a small collection of sash locks and lifts.
The brass one on the 3rd row is close to what you can buy today. Not much variation, but these old ones are so cool. It's a window lock, but there's pride in that lock.
@RevStench that's great man. Trying to put beauty into the little things I think is a big part of a good life
I love those window latches, it's hard to conceive of that kind of effort being put into things today
I agree. Those are sash locks and no one will see them, you'll hardly notice them but when you do, they are beautiful. Go look at you're vinyl windows and tell me how much thought was out into that haha.
I don't care for the "modern look". And I really don't care for the historic meshed with modern. Beautiful wood work and polished stainless steel don't go together
I'm in sour mood today, the young libtards in town are complaing about the restrictions of a historic district. They are moving in and finding out they aren't allowed to remodel the house. Or change the paint colors. Basically all you can do is restore it, and make it look new again. So the libs are fighting with the historic society and the city council is weak here. What makes Louisville, Louisville is the collection of Old Louisville mansions. Unmolested beautiful Victorian homes. They want to ruin that.
Yeah I couldn’t agree more. It also has a lot to do with over population, and mass production to maintain a certain living standard for everyone I’m sure. Also most people don’t have the skills to do their own work these days :/
I just made another one of those console tables and a few hidden gun shelves with my dad. I’ve got a ton of people that want to buy these tables from me now that my gf posted them online and a few people that my dad works with wanted to buy some of these hidden gun cabinets we made for our house that you hang on the wall and it uses a magnetic latch to open
@Envian that's cool bro, keep up the good work.
Got any pics of the hidden gun cabinets?
I have some pics from before we printed out some vinyl letters that go over it to make it look like modern wall art
I’ll post the finished pic with the words tomorrow but for now here is the general idea
Ok, cool. Thanks man
I have a pic with it opened, but not sure if I should post given the fact that it might be against the rules
That's sweet. Really cool idea. Yeah don't post guns. But that's great, blends right in.
It looks like these kind of signs and nobody would know what’s inside, so it’s a safe option to have one close, but also away from the reach of children and intruders
All the ones I’ve been selling I let the people choose what they want and it’s been 100% bible verses lol
That's cool, I've seen ones that look like cold air returns.
Haha it works, no one would ever think it's a hidden safe.
We made two of these about a year ago now that are the same concept. One of them is painted white and the one shown is stained, but nobody was interested when we tried to sell them so they have just been sitting around. I suppose they are just too bulky and don’t mesh well with modern minimalist style
Dude that looks good, hard to believe you couldn't sell it. It would fit in in one of these historic homes around here. Massive wood everything in these homes. 😁
This is now twin-lever-faucet hour, show me your best twin-lever faucets, knobs are for slobs.
I just moved homes from one with all twin-lever faucets to one with the single-lever and one with twin-knobs and they’re both terrible. I want this back:
Just read through the channel you guys are killing it
Clawfoot tub to match
This is my favorite channel in this server
Oh come on <#453241577062662146> is where it's at.
Oh come carpenters build the world bro😃 😂 😂
We can all be friends. Lol
Just remembered to take a pic of this after it was finished
Both this channel and <#453241577062662146> have loads of content now. It’s hard to say which is better
I love this server in general, it's full information
Spent this weekend pulling up our old rotting 20+ year old deck boards and replacing them with some composite boards
Need to get a few more 16ft boards before I can finish the middle of the deck
@RevStench clawfoot tubs own, would really like one whenever I buy a house. Looks great
@everyone Anyone interested in buying an architectural woodworking firm?
@SamanthaM Is this your family business that you have spoke of before?
@SamanthaM oh after some of the messages I seen from you about the family business I knew you where very passionate about it.
@everyone Got a quotes on the firm. He’s selling for $350k.
@SamanthaM what exactly is the deal? I'm not looking to buy it, just curious
It’s the sale of an architectural woodworking firm in PA. All equipment included.@John O -
I think @RevStench would be the only one here who would have the necessary skill set to take advantage of that
Worst sinks ever. No "warm" water, hot or cold
Apparently the way you're supposed to use them is clog the sink, fill it up with both, and splash your hands around
When the brick layer builds a house.
How old is it?
It was built around 1900, I don't know who built it. It's in Jeffersonville, IN. The lady who bought it is restoring it back to the period correct look, we're replacing the plastic windows with wooden ones, the mason is fixing all the mortor joints, they rebuilt the roof completely, replaced it with a metal one. She's going to put in a mosaic wooden floors. It's going to look really nice. This is her 4th restoration in just over a year. Jeffersonville is going to be a really nice town once they finish with the whole city "facelift". It's like a small town but it's right across the river from downtown Louisville. @Deleted User
I would love a brick house
Me too, they stay cooler
And they are stout, no worries of a tornado in there
I know, it was a joke. 😂
It's weird that the hardware is on the side.
And this brick.😃
If it aint broke don’t fix it right?
Nice clean hardware
