This Is Either Going To Clinch Or Clench Your Thirst 🤪
~
Evening Y’all!
So this probably isn’t done or seen anymore, it’s a nailing method called Clinched or Clenched nailing 🙌🏼
This was common practice in the past, a clinched nail is smash straight through! two studs that are kissing faces 😘 now this nailing technique needs the nail to crack on out the arse end on the stud, & then you give the pointy end of the nail a firm hit down, by hitting the nail downwards on the angle actually helps with 2 things one is it makes the join stronger, as it pulls the nail through as you tap tap tap it downwards, oh & yes that’s exactly why I’m using flat head nails as opposed to pew pew bullet head nails & 2 ✌🏼 & this is huge! It helps with my OCD 🤪 it doesn’t take long to produce quality, a tightly pulled in joint even a butt joint like this! is stronger than a gappy joint as let’s be honest it’ll be wobbling to the wiggles 🤣,
I’ve used this here just to help support the strutting beam directly above, she’s got, 2 in the top plate, 2 in the bottom plate, & 8 running up the guts 💪🏼 spaced 2, 1, 2, 1, 2!! Then followed up with a noggin to the left & right of each braced stud oh yeah & you can bet your bottom dolla 😉 she’s housed both in the heada & the foota!
I’ve approx. landed 1200 4”nails out of my @paslodeanz framer & planted 500 4 1/4” nails with my Martinez M1 😈
~
Oh on a side note 📝 @jennlynnphillips do you remember how painful it was to remove the 1” square head nails out of the blanket box your restored were? Well just think how much fun you could have ripping 4 1/4” nails out of my frames 🤪

Keep Telling Yourself Good Isn’t Good Enough.... You Deserve Much More. You Deserve GREATNESS 😈

Good M O R N I N G 🥳
Seriously I’m not this chirpy in the morning...............actually.................☝🏼 let me make a coffee.......................☕️
Ok so now that that’s made, sip, ahh yeah, so! I tell ya what I haven’t made a joint in such a long time that I’m starting to ache for it! SO bad! I know this is only a basic joint, the housing joint but by golly it’s nice to just put together 💕, they just slip straight in & seat so nicely 🥰, but I was up super late last night getting a house lot of cabinetry drawn up, for a live job 😈......... I know I should be more like this 🤪😴 but you know...... I have my morning coffee ☕️ so I’m just that much more switched on 🙌🏼 she’s gonna be a Cracka today!!! Just you wait!

Start By Changing Your Thoughts....... Finish By Changing Your Life 🥳

Evening Y’all! 🙌🏼,
So today was a doozy 🤪 we had 2 & a half packs of black butt flooring to cart up to the current project floor! & on all of the days! It needed to be felt with on a bloody 38deg day! & to top her off!! No freakin wind 💨 I think from what I calculated it too about 4 hours maybe a little more & there was a massive 105 sq metres 🍻, & ha to top it off I’ve come in with a bin full of spacers that Bianca cut up 🥳 & started spacing all the boards, I even told the builder this is what happens when you get a craftsman that specialises in solid timber let alone everything else! to sort out your workx 😈, got it all sitting there for the next 2 weeks when I lay all this!
Also I cracked out with 3/4 of a new wall & that means I have but one more 💯 then it’s for some intricate work! I’m bracing sections of the roof 👌🏼 but just if your wondering, yes my body is aching.... my spine is crying, but it will be alright, I’m resting now & about to pop a can to help with this Chronic Pain!
Y’all keep being awesome 😎 & im going to hang around for a bit if you want to grab a can & have a chat! I’ll see you in the comments 🍻
~
& Oye! While your hanging round the camp fire 🔥 make sure you use the hashy! So where my #woodworkingsquad be Crackin 😈 love Checkin Ya’s Out!!! ~

Me Weird? Ppfff, I’m Limited Edition 🤪
~
Arvo Y’all! 🙌🏼
Boy have I got a Cracka for Ya’s today! One of many!!! Here I’m just breaking the surface on Viles, & yeah I personally don’t believe there is a level that can compete with sola! But I’m sharing with y’all the differences I’ve loved & yeah..... all up against Stabila 😈.
~
Now I know that I’ve been busy & ive been missing actual woodwork so much! & I don’t mean making the odd door or vanity ect ❤️, I am working hard to build the buisness up just a little more, put on another worker & im pulling back a bit! I want to get back to doing some things I enjoy! Such as launching YouTube again & looking at sharing my knowledge/mindset & skills with Y’all 🥰, we all know the industry is failing, I started seeing it when I was a tradesman back when I was a wee pup & only getting worse & this isn’t the tradepeoples fault it’s the employers being allowed to dum down the industry & push to make more money! Doesn’t matter to me! Male or Female I think the industry should be open & taught to everyone that yields the fire in the belly to want to have the chance/opportunity to learn a way the craftsman Of The Old, I create to a way that I want.... NO I NEED!! what isn’t seen to be beautiful, I know at the moment I can’t change the industry! But I can definitely reach out & at least make a difference while I’m here on this Earth ❤️ I have the yearn, the skill & the knowledge of my masters that I was graced with through my apprenticeship, followed by the motivation of wanting to learn the ways of our ancestors....... just wait but a bit...... all you need to do is reach out 💕
