    Bacon wood knife scales

    Dave that "patina" is actually very desirable to many people, we used a lot of reclaimed wood on some builds and we do little if any sanding on most of this type wood and then we either do a low gloss or flat clear coat or no sealer at all depending on the customer's wishes. Many times the darkening on older wood is mostly in the clear coat but does go into the wood a bit or more depending on the age of the patina. If the reclaimed wood has never been maintained , i.e, repainted or sealed regularly the wood itself with most specics will turn gray as in most reclaimed barn wood.

    Well I can tell you from working with all kinds of wood on a daily basis being a custom cabinet maker for many years is that all woods will darken with exposure to UV light, even most paints will also darken, we have to deal with this with almost every customer when they ask why the cabinet/s next to their windows are darker than their other cabinets after a year or so.

    Great job!! At least you hold onto your finds, unlike Bill who just doesn't like or want the little ones and apparently just tosses them over his shoulder!

    Cabin Fever Already

    If they're anything like my chickens the would eat them as fast as they scratched them up especially if I go and pick it up, my chickens will eat anything, anytime I'm outside my chickens are on my heels following me around like little puppies and hoping I will toss something to them which if I do they will fight to see who ends up with it, I saw a small nail on the ground the other day and I bent down and picked it up and one of them little dinosuars grab it out of my hand and swallowed it so fast it made my head spin, they think anything in my hand is food.

    $75 just popped into my head, I can't resist guessing but if on the slight chance I get the closest, let the next closest win, I'm just here for the fun of guessing and to see if this popping into my head stuff works!!
  15. You truly only need to expose the interior, it can be done with a simple metal file, doesn't have to be a very big area, a 1/2" to 3/4" or so, just big enough to get a good photo, so you be the judge on size,

    Detecting hat

    If you want a 20 year old to wear anything, tell them not to wear it and they will wear it, it's called Oppositional Defiance Disorder, it's all the rage now-a-days!!! My son is an expert with this new rage, if I want him to do anything all I have to do is tell him not to do it, works everytime!!
