  1. Not anymore, I had timber adze and hand adze up north. Never used a bowl adze, just gouges and chisels. When I moved south mostly just lathes. Most of my hand carving tools I gave away.
  2. Just a regular BBQ grill for most stuff. The green wood wax is thick liquid you paint on the raw ends (be generous with it) Carving anything green will result in splits, cracks and warp. Carving green...
  3. You didn't ask for school time but I will lecture anyway. Get some greenwood wax. After you cut your victim coat both ends with it before you try drying it. If you want a super cheap and effective hom...
  4. If you took the time to read the rules you would know it is against the rules.
  5. You will find the company history online. I just checked and they were in business from 1910 - 1920. There are other companies but not with the same markings that I can find right off hand.
  6. I would venture to guess Warsaw Furniture Company (Kentucky).
  7. That is called a horn bird knife and you understand way wrong on the age.
  8. Once you cut these down the age of what it was originally is gone. You are altering it and making something new so it has a new birth date. These were hot sellers during the 1980's in New England but ...
  9. I can give you a starting point. Twenty years ago I made these by cutting down ten foot pews. They sold like hot cakes and old pews were cheap. Most of them were solid slab oak in a width you can't bu...
  10. If you are sure the black isn't black mold then leaving it is OK. Otherwise you might be well served to not use it for food prep.
  11. Those blocks under the legs are there for a reason. Cleaning under one of these daily caused the legs to rot out so they were blocked. Easier to replace blocks than legs. The black can be removed but ...
  12. It is more commonly called a push plane. The cutting head should swivel so you can either push or pull it. They were used to scrape crates but the swivel heads were also used to trim veneer and other ...
  13. A bit heavy for punishment. Try researching antique wood handle trivet.
  14. I won't post my birth date......most calendars make you scroll way down. I will say Happy Birthday and who is the good looking kid? :)
  15. I can't see the marks so will give you the link to international encyclopedia of silver marks. Good Luck. http://925-1000.com/
  16. These are quite valuable depending on condition and have been featured on the Pawn Stars TV show in the past. Excellent buy for $5.
  17. You may want to have the markings looked at. These were used by witch doctors, dancers and in voodoo. The occult ones are more valuable than ones used by dancers.
  18. JAMA is short for Jamaica and this is a maraca.
  19. I found a number of similar ones when I searched for Weltkrieg trench art letter opener.
  20. Research this as all one word "Weltkrieg" = World War. In this case WWI 1914 - 1918.
  21. It isn't in the uploading it is in the resolution setting you are taking the pictures at. Uploading isn't changing what you took.
  22. His other post is the same. He needs to adjust the resolution of the picture on his camera or phone so we get an image we can see. Interesting piece if we could see it.
  23. I have seen these on metal detecting sites that were found in various places. Everyone seemed to agree they were not actual chips but a souvenir type token. They also seem to agree they are collectabl...
  24. All of your pictures open so small you can't see anything. Goes for your other post also. If this has the usual Lane markings you can find everything about it listed online.
  25. Very nice. I have some of these that were passed on when my mother died. Mine are in well worn condition with notes in pencil here and there. We don't collect cookbooks but we appreciate them.
  26. We raise birds and as a result we get to bird fairs and such events. I have seen only a handful of cages this old and fancy. The ones I have seen were advertised as being bell cages ( I assume because...
  27. Kind of looks like it may have been a visual aid for medical school training. There appears to be a line where the top of the skull can be removed or open at about the same location where the skull wo...
  28. You bought it today and can't find another on the net. Obviously you didn't look to hard and expect others to do the work for you.
  29. I would agree 100% that this is a mismatch but the saw marks on the back side of the gingerbread and the carving don't look pushed to me. The sloppy glue joints do. the veneer can't be detracted from ...
  30. These were also sold as a kit for boy and girl scouts to build. I made them in the 1950's and they had been around for some time back then. When we built them they had to be marked with a name so it w...
  31. OK, I am ready to catch hell again, so here I go. I don't bother looking at the perfection of an item at the beginning. Especially when someone says Antique or hand carved. I look for the flaws that t...
  32. They have been saying coming soon for years. Everyone is still waiting. If you get out in the bible thumping country down here you see these signs. Flea markets try selling them but there isn't much i...
  33. Thanks. I never heard of Seneca making a spitoon. I have seen similar to this made by New Endland glass of what I believe is called Albereniem glass. My spelling is probably wrong. The reason I asked ...
  34. I wonder if you can provide some dimensions for this piece.
  35. I believe you will find that REX was the guy who designed the cards and I think his last name was Pitt or Pitts. I used to collect cards because they were small and easy to store. I only have a dozen ...
  36. I would say these are what is called a coronation pack in a display case. Rex Pitt I think and date around 1953. The direction she is facing, the margin and the coloring all matter in these cards. I g...
  37. Yankee still makes boat lights and I think some trailer lights but they are electric now.
  38. I think slackjack is right on. They had both starboard and port lenses and many were made by a company in Union, NJ. I believe they also made running board lights for cars 1912 - 1920 period of time. ...
  39. That hook that slides up the handle with the rounded back brace pretty much says it. Not an antique but old.
  40. You didn't give any dimensions but it looks like a barrel dolly to me. Sideways pictures don't help a bit.
  41. I certainly hope you are selling the soda for 1800's prices. Beautiful piece. I don't blame you for not parting with it. How much for a beer :)
  42. BAD DEVIL! We all know batteries weren't included back then.
  43. Use it as a regular chair. Only parts of it come close to being antique so you won't devalue it. Enjoy it.
  44. Officialfuel - Never worry about where the time has gone. I remember turning 60 and wondering the same thing. Use your experience to try and teach others. Some will listen and others will put you down...
  45. I grew up on both Sunbeam and Betty Lou bread. I remember the sign that said Betty Lou for .22. Sunbeam was selling more so Betty Lou was 22 cents a loaf. Hamburg was 28 cents a pound and gas was 18 c...
  46. I won't be much help but I found this interesting when you posted it. I did some searches (Canada and Ireland). I found very similar chairs only in the Ireland searches and most didn't have arms altho...
  47. Unique corner blocks. I would say 1950's or newer. Looks like someone took a sander to it and did away with what little value it had.
  48. Your pictures confuse me a bit. The first two pictures appear to have slab seats and the last two just the opposite. You said you have three of them and obviously they aren't matched. Although I suspe...
  49. This chair speaks to me of being Black Forest, German. The carving and the seat particularly. If so, then it was made between 1870 & 1900. Difficult to tell from one picture but I think I am right.
  50. Very well made old desk with history that speaks for itself. I would be very hard put to agree on it being oak though.
  51. See more
