    Tool Restoration

    I live in a house built in 1917, on a block of such houses, in an American city known for it's great number of Victorian and Craftsman homes.Hand tools are so important. when you look at an historic home- hand tools were it. yes, they may have been more specialized, and the work crews were certainly larger. But a great deal of Europe and a fair bit of North America was built with tools just like these. I sometimes even find a handmade nail, likely from the bottom of someone's toolbox.I hope there are always people who restore, respect, and maintain these tools for the future. they have so much to teach us.and if you cant tell from all the poetry, great 'ible!

    Unusual Uses Ziploc Bags

    if you leave a minimal amount of paint on the brush, you can store it over night, or longer, in the freezer and the paint does not dry. I have only done this with latex, (water based) paint, and you really must not have a loaded brush. I frequently only have an hour or less to work at at a time on projects, and saving trifling bits of time adds up. in addition, it prevents paint waste. I'm also guilty of doing my first coats in the evening with poor light, and who wants to go outside and wash a brush in the dark? (old house; cranky plumbing, no paint down sink)thanks for the great ideas

    yes, I do this for beads, or to corral bits of gold or silver wire. I buy my tiny bags at DAISO, a Japanese shop in the Western USA that sells everything for $1.50, about 50 bags in in a pack.

    One Sheet Plywood Boat

    lovely! thank you for this. seems like just the thing for the kids to play in at the beach. I think I will drop an anchor in the shallow water so I dont need to worry about them paddling too far out. now looking forward to the two sheet boat so that *I* can have a paddling boat.the river you put in at is beautiful, as well.

    in the US if you look for something called Spar varnish, you can use that, as well. if you use linseed oil, it would be wise to put on a fresh coat every season.
