The before picture didn't take, they were painted UPS brown


2018-07-25 21:53:45 UTC

How did you clean them?!?!

2018-07-25 22:28:34 UTC

Wire wheel on a pedestal grinder.

2018-08-04 14:49:14 UTC

Here's a custom window, the timer had knots in it, I don't like to use it with knots because over time the wood will twist. But it comes from Honduras so I couldn't wait haha.

All in a days work πŸ˜‚ building a new shed

2018-08-05 05:26:09 UTC

Hahah it looks nice

2018-08-05 12:36:01 UTC

looks good @Envian

2018-08-09 00:33:02 UTC


2018-08-09 00:34:16 UTC

Got to this point in a weekend, next weekend I’ll be putting up the siding/trim/painting and then finishing the roof off with some shingles

2018-08-09 01:33:42 UTC

Great work @Envian !

2018-08-14 17:09:15 UTC


2018-08-14 17:09:48 UTC

Pretty much done with it, just need to finish the shingles and then do the trim/paint

2018-08-14 17:10:01 UTC

Oh and build a door

2018-08-14 17:15:00 UTC

bad ass bro!

2018-08-14 17:15:10 UTC

That was what, two weekends?

2018-08-14 17:15:27 UTC

Yep πŸ˜‚

2018-08-14 17:16:24 UTC

And the first day was spent driving around buying all the stuff I needed

2018-08-15 01:04:02 UTC

Very nice work!

2018-08-20 23:16:30 UTC

All done πŸ˜„


2018-08-21 00:06:58 UTC

Looks good bro.

2018-08-21 18:55:26 UTC

Square sink, that's cool. It would go nice with a square toilet haha



2018-08-21 18:57:39 UTC

Covered πŸ˜‚


2018-08-21 19:03:36 UTC

Pro caulking tip: cut the tip at an angle, there's really no wrong size hole to use, I prefer it to be on the smaller size. Now if it's a pretty big gap I pack the gap with scrap wood or even paper towels then caulk. I never use a tool to "tool" the caulking. What I do is spit on my finger tip and smooth the caulking. A little practice and you won't even see it.

2018-08-23 17:29:25 UTC

Check out this tiny window, it's in a closet. 9in line man pliers for size.


2018-08-23 17:30:44 UTC

20in top sash, 22in bottom sash.

2018-08-23 18:20:40 UTC

Lol. Perfectly square πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

@Envian Great looking shed man- very nice work!

2018-09-08 21:07:28 UTC

Thanks πŸ™πŸ»

2018-09-11 01:32:34 UTC

If you need to condition wood for outside use and aren't going to paint it for a while. Linseed oil is your friend.

2018-09-11 01:32:54 UTC

2018-09-11 01:33:58 UTC

Slather on, let it sit for a few minutes while you clean out your brush. Then wipe with a paper towel.

2018-09-12 20:57:40 UTC

How often do you go to work and open a window and find the news paper?

2018-09-12 20:58:52 UTC


2018-09-12 20:59:16 UTC

December 1923

2018-09-12 20:59:17 UTC

Thats pretty cool.

2018-09-12 21:00:09 UTC

I ran into some neat stuff today. Like this sweet radiator.

2018-09-12 21:00:15 UTC


2018-09-12 21:00:23 UTC

This is the house

2018-09-12 21:00:42 UTC





2018-09-12 21:00:51 UTC


2018-09-12 21:01:23 UTC

I'm doing the windows and art glass.

2018-09-12 21:02:39 UTC

2018-09-12 21:03:24 UTC


2018-09-12 21:05:17 UTC

That turret goes all the to the cellar.


2018-09-12 21:05:36 UTC

Huge old boiler too



2018-09-12 21:05:52 UTC

High ceilings in the cellar

2018-09-12 21:06:09 UTC



2018-09-12 21:07:08 UTC

Still has coal in the basement to feed that boiler


2018-09-12 21:15:58 UTC

Someone still lives there?

2018-09-12 21:49:14 UTC

Not right now, it's being restored to the original lay out. It was cut up into apartments sometime in the 70s.

2018-09-13 00:01:30 UTC

@RevStench ky ie chapter house? We need that place.

2018-09-13 01:08:05 UTC

Haha I wish. It's a beautiful place, has a private parking lot, a wall haha. 4 stories and a massive cellar that doesn't get wet. Hahaha it would be perfect.

2018-09-18 13:53:24 UTC

I love these little windows. 9in Knock off Klein's haha for size.


2018-10-03 23:12:31 UTC

Anyone here know anything about repairing roof leaks? It's raining hard where I live and rain is leaking through roof by the chimney.

2018-10-03 23:51:56 UTC

It's the flashing. When it drys out get up there with some metal sealant and some matching color trim screws and nail it in the mortar. Use a lot of sealant, smear it around.

2018-10-03 23:52:51 UTC
2018-10-03 23:53:25 UTC

It could be the flashing, you'll have to look at it. But if it's coming in at the chimney it's most likely the flashing.

2018-10-04 11:44:52 UTC

@Rick if you get up there get some pics if you have any questions.

2018-10-08 22:05:24 UTC

I sent you a response in the general channel, but I missed the part about the chimney. The sealant should still work though and then like rev said you should take a look at the metal flashing. @Rick

β€œHow I took apart a coat hanger”

2018-10-31 22:45:20 UTC

Gotta work with your hands sometimes. Great job

2018-11-01 20:34:39 UTC

Looks nice dude. @Envian

2018-11-01 20:35:23 UTC

Here's some custom casement windows I made. They still need to be cleaned.


2018-11-01 20:36:45 UTC

We're also restoring a 1972 Airstream camper.
Here's a little shelf for the bathroom.



2018-11-03 16:45:19 UTC

Ooh that looks nice. What kind of finish do you like to use? I’ve been using a matte polyurethane. I plan to make two matching nightstands sometime soon as well as a chest that sits at the end of the bed. I want to give them a glossy finish, so I won’t be using the poly (don’t like the way glossy poly looks). Any suggestions?

2018-11-03 19:54:22 UTC

I used Helmsman water based poly on that, it's not real glossy but you can see it.
Usually I use high gloss poly because it protects better. And people like that high gloss look.

2018-11-07 23:26:58 UTC

I hate working on homemade scaffolding.

2018-11-07 23:27:17 UTC

Especially in a proper turret.

2018-11-07 23:28:08 UTC

It's only a little over 20ft, but falling would hurt hahaha

2018-11-21 06:42:51 UTC

A pretty large chest I made to sit at the bottom of my bed. Should look really nice when I stain /finish it



2018-11-21 06:44:55 UTC

The hinges for the lid and the handles haven’t arrived yet either, but I found some really nice hinges hat allow the lid to over hang on the back

2018-11-21 14:21:10 UTC

Looks nice bro. If you're ever looking for hardware here's where I buy a lot of stuff from.

2018-11-21 17:48:04 UTC

Nice they have some cool bail pulls on there. Wish I would have known before I bought the ones I did so I could have more choices. Either way the ones I got are fine though I guess.

2018-11-21 19:02:02 UTC

Haha you could always swap it out later. Nice work though bro.

2018-11-21 21:20:09 UTC

Thank you.

2018-11-21 21:21:06 UTC

That’s true. I’ll see how it looks before I install it and return it if I don’t like it

2018-11-24 21:23:33 UTC

@Envian Nice work. Post photos after you stain it please, they always look so good after being stained.

2018-11-25 22:12:50 UTC

@Sonic thanks, πŸ˜„ will do!

2018-11-26 01:14:52 UTC

@Envian Thats beautiful

2018-11-26 06:53:51 UTC


2018-11-26 06:54:30 UTC

Here’s my latest project. Just a simple stand for my desk

2018-12-06 22:17:38 UTC

Building some custom windows and frames for a place in Jeffersonville, Indiana.








2018-12-06 22:18:07 UTC

Well those didn't go in order hahah

2018-12-06 22:19:58 UTC





2018-12-06 22:20:11 UTC


2018-12-06 22:20:16 UTC


2018-12-06 22:21:01 UTC

The frame I had to chisel out the mortise for the pulleys. These are single hung windows.

2018-12-06 22:21:17 UTC



2018-12-06 22:22:35 UTC

In that 2nd pic I used a chisel. Once it's like that you can use just a chisel to get the material out.

2018-12-06 22:22:52 UTC





2018-12-07 09:36:31 UTC

That’s cool. I haven’t run into a situation that requires any of my chisels yet.

2018-12-07 18:23:58 UTC

The key to getting good cuts with hand chisels is to cut across the grain. I also trace the pulley with a razor and it keeps the edges from blowing out.

2018-12-28 21:35:25 UTC

I build a custom book scanner


2018-12-28 21:36:04 UTC

I made it from 1/2 Birch ply wood


2018-12-28 21:36:22 UTC


2018-12-28 21:38:40 UTC

I made a special cut-out with a glass insert

2018-12-28 21:39:46 UTC

I cut the glass with a Four-fluted straight flute drill bit


2018-12-28 21:40:42 UTC


2018-12-28 21:43:10 UTC

I made mounting brackets from the scrap Birch plywood and mounted the Scanner up-side down so I can place the Book face down on the glass surface to get a perfect image surface


2018-12-28 21:43:23 UTC


2018-12-28 21:43:52 UTC


2018-12-28 21:44:03 UTC


2018-12-28 21:47:34 UTC

I placed Teflon tape on and around the base of the scanner and used 5min epoxy as a plastic shim so that the scanner could be mounted to the birch brackets without drilling into the base of the base of the scanner

2018-12-28 21:51:47 UTC


2018-12-28 22:39:58 UTC

Looks nice bro.

2018-12-29 01:17:32 UTC


2018-12-29 03:27:23 UTC

Im building a second one for larger books

2018-12-29 04:45:15 UTC

Well done @V.Balboa - PA

2018-12-29 05:44:15 UTC


2018-12-31 17:47:34 UTC

@V.Balboa - PA how well is it working for you?

2018-12-31 21:48:42 UTC

Manual machine


2018-12-31 21:48:49 UTC

Teach ya how to do manuals

2018-12-31 22:22:35 UTC


2019-01-01 01:59:16 UTC

@RevStench its working Awsomely πŸ˜ƒ

2019-01-15 22:39:19 UTC

@V.Balboa - PA that's awesome. Hopefully you'll can upload a few books hahah.

2019-01-15 22:39:48 UTC

I'm restoring these this week.



2019-01-15 22:49:19 UTC

These just need paint and they are ready to go. I'm not painting these. I have 10 sets.



2019-01-15 22:50:39 UTC

Custom window frame.



2019-01-16 01:14:36 UTC

@RevStench awesome man πŸ˜ƒ

2019-01-23 01:55:07 UTC

So many windows...


2019-01-27 20:13:07 UTC

dam nice

2019-01-31 23:50:15 UTC

I’m still working on my chest... with the cold weather and my unheated garage it’s pretty much still at the same point it was when I last posted πŸ˜‚

2019-01-31 23:52:05 UTC

I got some hard wood flooring for 1$ a box from my work and I plan to just square it off and use the hard wood for some nightstands too but not until it heats up a bit.

2019-02-01 00:24:28 UTC

Hahaha bundle up bro. You could use that flooring as verner. Stick it on with a pin nailer. Church some stuff up hahaha.

2019-02-02 02:12:48 UTC

Anyone know what kind of nail this is? Can they still be bought? I found a couple lodged in the beams of a shed here.


2019-02-02 02:30:02 UTC

I'm pretty sure those are shoeing nails. @Daniel Turch @wolfwood

2019-02-02 02:31:10 UTC

Wow, I hadn't thought of that! I thought they were some sort of old square/cut nail

2019-02-02 02:31:25 UTC

It looks like you are correct

2019-02-02 02:32:22 UTC

A previous resident must have been a farrier.

2019-02-02 02:48:05 UTC

Daniel is a farrier, that's why I tagged him hahah.
I know my nails haha. Cut nails have a blunt end and are thicker. That's cool though.

2019-02-02 02:57:39 UTC

If only I had a horseshoe to hang up for luck

2019-02-09 20:52:37 UTC

Does anyone know a good place to get 2x2 lumber that is furniture grade? I am making a dresser for my gf and for now my only idea is to take 2x4s and rip them down, but if possible to get really good lumber I’d be willing to just buy it.

2019-02-09 20:53:29 UTC

It’s so cold in my garage that I’m not trying to spend time out there ripping down 2x4s πŸ˜‚

2019-02-10 01:35:09 UTC

It looks like maybe Home Depot has square edge white wood 2x2s so nvm I’ll go check that out

2019-02-10 13:50:57 UTC

I buy my exotic woods from a local company.

2019-02-10 18:10:27 UTC

Can anyone recommend a door reinforcement kit, window bars, and/or alarms that engage when a door is being kicked in or a window is smashed?

2019-02-10 18:10:46 UTC

<@&403278581272150016> ^

2019-02-11 01:13:08 UTC

Simply safe.
If you're renting make your landlord do it.
The best you can do for a door is one of those things that you prop under the knob to help hold it shut.
As far as bars for the windows I'd say those are probably custom made. I could be wrong though haha.

2019-02-11 22:11:42 UTC

Thanks for the advice @RevStench . They're for my gf, who unfortunately needed them ASAP. The landlord is really slow getting back to her so she got some of those temporary window reinforcements and better locks. Hopefully those will work

2019-02-11 22:43:40 UTC

You could go this route too, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182113888101
Or this

Is it a ground level window that you're worried about someone breaking in? They do make that film you can attach to the glass and makes it "shatter" resistant. But if you kick long enough I feel someone could get through.
I saw this, link, if it screws in I feel that would be perfect. Or something similar.

I recommended Simply Safe because it's a relatively cheap security system that is wireless. The advantage is someone can't cut your phone line outside of the house to disable the system.

2019-02-11 22:43:44 UTC
2019-02-11 22:44:04 UTC

I just saw you're in New York, good luck πŸ˜‚

2019-02-11 22:45:08 UTC

It is a ground level window, and thank you for all the information! She's actually in Philly (different schools) so it's far more dangerous for her. Yesterday, every car on the street had one smashed window. @RevStench

2019-02-11 22:48:53 UTC

Dang, that sucks. Hopefully you can find something to secure that window. For better safety find something that screws in, you can patch the holes really easy.

2019-02-11 22:58:33 UTC

Thanks again, I'll relay all of this to her

2019-02-12 00:22:02 UTC

No problem brother, gotta keep your little lady safe while you're away.

2019-02-22 01:30:39 UTC

New radial arm saw set up. 20feet of surface, and some cabinets.




2019-02-23 00:20:24 UTC

Nice lookin workshop!

2019-02-23 02:37:09 UTC

Thanks, it's always a work in progress.

2019-03-01 23:34:52 UTC

Art glass!




2019-03-01 23:36:17 UTC

Wow Gorgeous!

2019-03-01 23:46:28 UTC

They were made mid 1800s, I just restored them, replaced broken/cracked glass. Re soldered everything to tighten it up.
It's hammered glass so it's hard to find matching glass. We're just not as good as the old timers.

2019-03-01 23:50:10 UTC

Well,it still a beauty to enjoy. Glad you could do it. Some learn more of the art over time,hear it can be tricky. Have just always appreciated such loveliness in the stained glass like these. A true art form. Thanks for helping to keep it so!

2019-03-02 01:16:22 UTC

Thanks for appreciating it. Leaded glass isn't to hard, it's just incredibly time consuming.
