The before picture didn't take, they were painted UPS brown
How did you clean them?!?!
Wire wheel on a pedestal grinder.
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 😂 building a new shed
Hahah it looks nice
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
Pretty much done with it, just need to finish the shingles and then do the trim/paint
Oh and build a door
bad ass bro!
That was what, two weekends?
And the first day was spent driving around buying all the stuff I needed
Very nice work!
All done 😄
Looks good bro.
Square sink, that's cool. It would go nice with a square toilet haha
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.
Check out this tiny window, it's in a closet. 9in line man pliers for size.
20in top sash, 22in bottom sash.
Lol. Perfectly square 👌🏻
lel sorry bro
If you need to condition wood for outside use and aren't going to paint it for a while. Linseed oil is your friend.
Slather on, let it sit for a few minutes while you clean out your brush. Then wipe with a paper towel.
How often do you go to work and open a window and find the news paper?
Thats pretty cool.
I ran into some neat stuff today. Like this sweet radiator.
This is the house
I'm doing the windows and art glass.
That turret goes all the to the cellar.
Huge old boiler too
High ceilings in the cellar
Still has coal in the basement to feed that boiler
Someone still lives there?
Not right now, it's being restored to the original lay out. It was cut up into apartments sometime in the 70s.
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.
I love these little windows. 9in Knock off Klein's haha for size.
Anyone here know anything about repairing roof leaks? It's raining hard where I live and rain is leaking through roof by the chimney.
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.
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.
@Rick if you get up there get some pics if you have any questions.
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
They didn’t post in order 😓
“How I took apart a coat hanger”
Gotta work with your hands sometimes. Great job
Here's some custom casement windows I made. They still need to be cleaned.
We're also restoring a 1972 Airstream camper.
Here's a little shelf for the bathroom.
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?
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.
I hate working on homemade scaffolding.
Especially in a proper turret.
It's only a little over 20ft, but falling would hurt hahaha
A pretty large chest I made to sit at the bottom of my bed. Should look really nice when I stain /finish it
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
Looks nice bro. If you're ever looking for hardware here's where I buy a lot of stuff from.
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.
Haha you could always swap it out later. Nice work though bro.
That’s true. I’ll see how it looks before I install it and return it if I don’t like it
@Envian Nice work. Post photos after you stain it please, they always look so good after being stained.
Here’s my latest project. Just a simple stand for my desk
Building some custom windows and frames for a place in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Well those didn't go in order hahah
The frame I had to chisel out the mortise for the pulleys. These are single hung windows.
In that 2nd pic I used a chisel. Once it's like that you can use just a chisel to get the material out.
That’s cool. I haven’t run into a situation that requires any of my chisels yet.
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.
I build a custom book scanner
I made it from 1/2 Birch ply wood
I made a special cut-out with a glass insert
I cut the glass with a Four-fluted straight flute drill bit
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
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
Looks nice bro.
Im building a second one for larger books
Teach ya how to do manuals
@V.Balboa - PA that's awesome. Hopefully you'll can upload a few books hahah.
I'm restoring these this week.
These just need paint and they are ready to go. I'm not painting these. I have 10 sets.
Custom window frame.
So many windows...
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 😂
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.
Hahaha bundle up bro. You could use that flooring as verner. Stick it on with a pin nailer. Church some stuff up hahaha.
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.
Wow, I hadn't thought of that! I thought they were some sort of old square/cut nail
It looks like you are correct
A previous resident must have been a farrier.
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.
If only I had a horseshoe to hang up for luck
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.
It’s so cold in my garage that I’m not trying to spend time out there ripping down 2x4s 😂
It looks like maybe Home Depot has square edge white wood 2x2s so nvm I’ll go check that out
I buy my exotic woods from a local company.
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?
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.
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
You could go this route too, https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182113888101
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.
I just saw you're in New York, good luck 😂
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
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.
Thanks again, I'll relay all of this to her
No problem brother, gotta keep your little lady safe while you're away.
New radial arm saw set up. 20feet of surface, and some cabinets.
Nice lookin workshop!
Thanks, it's always a work in progress.
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.
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!
Thanks for appreciating it. Leaded glass isn't to hard, it's just incredibly time consuming.
