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
