Re: Really cool old mansion

Amazing! It sure beats the microwave poached-egg maker I got from my Aunt Bea for my wedding :wink: Seriously, though, it reminds me of a super-sized version of "verve's" house :mrgreen:

Re: Summer 2011 = Window Restoration!

It looks great!! Your putty job looks perfect to me :mrgreen: And I am happy to hear that the Wagner wall paper steamer worked - I have been toying with the idea of trying that method myself... How did you "catch" the water run-off? Or maybe there wasn't much? I managed to get 4 windows (8 sash) don...

Re: Repairing A Gouged Door

Ok, I'll jump on the doggy-door gouging topic train :wink: When we moved into our house there were varying degrees of dog scratches on doors throughout the house. They are not blaring what-so-ever, and most people won't notice them unless I point them out. Most of them appear to have been "gone over...

Re: Just a piece of oak

That is impressive! I found what I think is a piece of birds-eye maple (way small compared to your oak piece at 31" x 7.5") in the basement amungst a pile of odd boards. If I could come up with something cool like you did, I would refinish that too... Did you have to sand it at all? Or just clean it...

Re: Craigslist Finds....

not officially a craigslist find.... but I would love a reason to spend 400 dollars on this neat old water fountain. It is in an antique store in a neighboring city. Maybe we could incorporate it into our attic man cave/ game room some day...? ***Try this, new link... http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7...
