3" heart pine block 11.5" x12.6" from warehouse on Savannah river.  Originally these were 16 to 20' tall and used for the outside of old warehouses.  I wanted to use this to mount my Pepe forming stake on this so I drilled the holes for the base, and then 3 holes to pound in 4" nails so I could take off the top to move if necessary.

This top block of heart pine weighs 10.5 POUNDS and is 3" x  11 1/2" wide x 13" long.
A friend of mine in SC and I bought an entire flatbed full of these planks for $750.00 back in 1966.  I used them for flooring and walls in an addition, she used hers for her home.  The guys that had to plane these planks were furious, because they kept ruining saw blades from the hidden spikes, which was totally understandable, but we all finally got the job done by at least going through and getting out the spikes and nails that were showing.  .

I tested 3 drill bits different sizes, to see which one would be best for the square cut nails which would hold tightly but not split the wood.  All of them are in, and they look fabulous to me.  They hold super tight, are flush, and since I have about 10 lbs. of them, I don't have to buy any for a long time.

Carpet tool that I use for cutting 1" stall mats, and opening folded metal.  The three wavy tools behind are called Sinusoidal stakes.  I made these out of in line engine punches from Sears.  They are 14'. 9" and 6", and made with a large welding torch and acetylene bending with a pr of vise grips , cooling slightly and creating another bend.  They have to be cooled by leaving alone, not quenched, then sanded and buffed because metal has to be formed over these, so they have to be smooth.

The 2Cent tool I use the most.  I'm not sure what it was used for, but I sharpened it to razor sharp, sanded and polished.  It is steel, and I use it to open prongs and then closing them with the back of this.  This is similar to an oyster and clam opening tool we used in SC on the boats, but I've made it much thinner.

Close up of the damage, after carefully removing as much of it as possible.  You can see the Verdigris has created a hole in one of the balls on the left side of the face panel on the left.

Still showing corrosion and verdigris.  If left unchecked, and stored with other jewelry, this will spread and disintegrate other metals.  Although this is marked Sterling, the process of finishing in the pickle, was probably contaminated the sterling, and ended up plating it unknowingly.  You can see the hole in the ball better in this photo.

Much better show of Sterling.  It will now be carefully stored in a baggie, and will develop a natural patina, which is NOT the same thing as Verdigris or Patina.  Patina is the natural oxidation by the air or wearing of the Sterling, which gives darker areas around the work.

After initial sanding with 320 grit.  You can see the lines, so I had to be really careful when annealling with the torch, so that the solder didn't melt.  I think they must have used hard solder, as it stayed in tact, but then just surface filed it with a jewelers file, and left it, so the edges were quite sharp and  coarse.
