enlarge 73KB, 640x480 192 Sat. morning in studio
enlarge 42KB, 640x480 193 Still not sure where everything will go, but I found a great site that Connie Fox from San Diego had on Pinterest that was what I was looking for. We use many of the same tools so this was great.
enlarge 75KB, 568x640 194 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.
enlarge 59KB, 613x640 195 Two tables on West wall.
enlarge 82KB, 640x598 196 Sewing repairing for horse blankets and leather repairs have to share this space. I'd really like to have the entire studio in my dining room, because of the great light, but I sleep in there in the winter to save on heat. Maybe someday.
enlarge 61KB, 640x585 197 Before the second table was put in.
enlarge 81KB, 640x551 198 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.
enlarge 77KB, 640x493 199 Starting the chiseling. I found that using my trusty circular saw and going along the top would be a bit faster to chisel.
enlarge 88KB, 640x517 200 Then I used my old Stanley hand plane to level as much as I can.
enlarge 79KB, 640x577 201 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.
enlarge 86KB, 553x640 202 Testing how it will look.
enlarge 53KB, 640x507 203 In studio before leveling legs
enlarge 69KB, 640x632 204 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.
enlarge 63KB, 640x563 205 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.
enlarge 37KB, 640x480 206
enlarge 71KB, 640x594 207 I melted the cleaned sterling scraps in a crucible with flux until melted. The scraps were from my mother's damaged 1920s candlesticks, you can see the base to the right.
enlarge 61KB, 575x640 208 further melting before pouring so that it goes in one pour keeping out bubbles.
enlarge 58KB, 640x421 209 I carved a channel in a fire brick with a hammer and chisel and poured in the melted sterling scrap with flux.
enlarge 79KB, 640x638 210 After getting the four billets out of each pour-they were approximately 1 1/2" x 3/4" w x 1/2" thick. I hammered to flatten on my anvil, then annealed them with the torch and rolled through two times, then annealed again, and rolled two more times until I got them the thickness I wanted.
