    ”Bαzοmο Tdy Plαn” (Google it), is definitely a detailed woodworking book! Through the help of this plan, I had been able to utilize words, drawings, real pictures and various diagrams. It is really an interesting product. I am currently creating furniture along with my sibling and thanks to this product, I feel like assisting him is possible. .

    I believe you can also make dark rustic bolts by heating them and brush linseed oil over them

    I’m planning a reclaimed lumber desk build and was thinking of using the same joinery technique, but I’m not sure I want to drill through my beams like that... the wood comes from a 19th century house, and I want to keep its character to some extent.. minimal alterations... of course I’ll sand it... you should have seen the splinter it attacked me with!!!
    Still, this technique might be an option.

    To thread nuts on long bolts or threaded rod spin the nut with a long strip or strap with an end on each hand and holding the strip against the nut using it run the nut down the bolt by pulling it from left to right for right hand thread
    Or you can do like this guy and rig it with a drill:
    The method I attempted to explain is exactly the same principle
    I saw a vid clip of workers in China(?) using a 10 foot lifting strap to run the nuts down the foundation bolts of a wind turbine pylon in this way...
    with a guy at each end of the strap, one walking away providing the pull, the other keeping tension.
    Really hard to put inti words such a simple concept but the vid says it all

      Carbide tip blade laffs at soft metal nails without as so much as a whimper.
      That's the blade he uses to cut aluminum and brass.
      Dull orange spark means the nail yielded. Brite white spark means you lost some carbide
      Now don't even dare go thinking of bringing that lumber anywhere near the jointer the planer or the table saw

    I used pole barn nails and regular nails was faster and cheaper. The post I was paid to take so is a double win.
