Latest Projects:
Cutting up and cleaning up limbs and debris from Hurricane Delta. Had a window sash damaged, now repaired, otherwise I had no damaged compared to others in the neighborhood.

Finished making the main door and screen door for my nephew's pool house, 2 coats of finish on it, one more coat to go. All those moldings, 60 of them, may have been the worse part of the job. Still need to make the door framing, but that shouldn't take too long.

The new doorway will replace this:

Had a nice upholstery job, paid about $2K, so I bought a wood threader from Fine Tools: 50mm, item 301865 @ $861.21 + $159 Euro. Never thought about it when making the order, but discovered later an additional $60 US for import fee. It's to arrive today.

Thanks. I don't have dedicated door tools. The main frame was easy enough, rabbeting the edges for the molding, but hand chiseling the mortises for the glass panes framing. Those pane framings I had to hand cut the tenons/profiles to fit the mortises.... time consuming, but late in the evenings relaxing in the shop, listening to the radio, little by little all got done. My usual procedure, go out there and take it easy. I have good tools for hand work.

"Kinda" is not quite accurate. My jaw dropped when I first saw the price, some months ago. I debated and procrastinated a long time. I really want to get these two antique work tables in good shape. I may find another project for the threading tool, in the future. My upholstery money is extra cash and I don't play the casinos. Also, I considered, one of my nephews will inherit some of my major tools. He and his son has shown me woodworking interests. Good guys deserve nice gifts.

BTW, the $159 Euro fee was for shipping, though you may have reasoned that.

Based on what the old screen door and door looked like, I am not sure you could say the hurricane Delta really harmed your nephew's pool house. It needed immediate replacement whether there was a hurricane or not.

LOL. You've misunderstood. Nephew bought this old farm 5-6 months ago. The pool house was built poorly in the first place. I'd been working, off & on, on the door for maybe 2 months. We refinished his son's bedroom wood floor and I built him a TV cabinet/desk with some old salvaged long leaf pine, also. Scroll right for 2 more pics. https://www.flickr.com/photos/438361...in/photostream

Nephew and son razed the old falling-apart barn and will build a new one.

I haven't heard that they had storm damage, but I'll see when I go (hopefully) next weekend to install the door.... that's the plan.

That crossed my mind. I've never heard of anyone wanting or looking for large threaders or the service. Maybe, since large threaders are not so readily available, folks just don't inquire or mention the need.

Since these are so expensive, I think I'd have a user come to my shop and they do the work. I'd charge a fee for the tool use. I need to learn the tool, see how easy/hard it is to work with, before establishing a rental-use or threading service procedure/policy.

This threader set is a birthday gift to myself, along with a new power washer due to arrive tomorrow.

Or they find another option. For that amount of money I'd have been
tempted to go with a lathe.
