This is a 9" serving fork by SIMPSON, HALL, MILLER & CO - Wallingford, CT
Organized by Samuel Simpson in 1866. Part of International Silver Company in 1898.  I've had this for many years, and loved the nouveau workmanship on it.

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.  .

Top of the base.  I added two wood pieces glued and nailed so that when I added the mid piece, it would not move or wiggle.  This process took about an hour, mostly to keep picking it up and putting it down and marking where the pieces went..

The beams stacked.  I've fiddled with these for 3 days now trying to figure out how to keep them stabilized, where to put the vise and forming stake, finally, thanks to Connie Fox's studio photos, I have a plan-okay I have said-IHAP for months now, maybe today I can get this done before I have to leave for work at noon.

I took the old sawhorses out of the annex barn and brought them over to the back porch.  I want to make another bench to hold my 12" guillotine shear, and my drill press.  I have to chisel off the top of the center 2x6.  The wide boards are on the right-18" and 19" wide by 1" thick.

All finished, but the legs are all different lengths.  I measured and wrote on the legs and in my notebook so I made sure I had the correct angle and then cut the taller ones down so both sawhorses were the same height.

I drilled holes all along the bottom board about 3" apart, and then marked them on the sawhorse so that I could drill the top board holes and alternate the nails.  I used square cut masonry nails.

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.

I finally got around to figuring out what to do with the 1/2 cut steel belt buckle with the gorgeous Robins Egg Blue cabs.  I made it into a barrette for myself.  I had to remove the findings on the back, and file off the edges, and then wired on the barrette back.  This is 4" with a slight dome and 1 1/4" wide.

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.

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.

I still have to hand saw the inside disk out, saw off the outside bottom plate, add the top plate, saw that off, add the stones, weave and solder the wire through weaving it so that the stones don't fall out.   This one will be an open top, with loose stones, and a sterling wire woven top.
