  • The story so far... I had this cracking little old butchers block that needed a little TLC, thinking it was a simple job i took it over to my mate, blacksmith and woodworker extraordinaire Oli Marshall of ORKE Wrought Iron designs. Turns out it needed more than a little TLC, in needed a complete overhaul, in fact, a total rebuild from scratch. So with the mission of up-cycling and trying to reuse as much of the original block as possible, we both set to work to transform this tatty old gal, block by block, into a thing of beauty, and the end result will be something truly special. Part 3, shows us gluing the block back together. Has all the hours of hardwork payed off? Look out for part 4, coming soon.......

    Nice to see you doing it the old ways using friends old businesses from before. Part of the process is the ride down the old lanes. Learning enjoying the experiences. Too easy to use today's sterile give me the money no love no joy. This took me back to when I was a small lad watching the old blacksmith ,mechanics scrumping apples or the creamery to get our milk picking watercress by the brook blackberries at hedges similar to the lanes you drive down in the video. buying fish from the fishmonger who drove to the village every Tuesday back in the 50s before we immigrated to Canada Well done Scott for doing it the old ways. Well done .

    Scott...I was noticing in my block as i cut up a steer last weekend that mine has dovetail joints holding the chains together..... What is the best method of storing a block between usage?

    OK, I can see a few mistakes in the woodwork but, I wouldn't have had the input of a butcher if I was doing it, which I think is significant here, onwards to the next episode

    Cool project, but get those dang rings off when working with power tools so you don't lose fingers.


    I use the old fashioned sash clamps but, they wouldn't be strong enough for this job. It's looking like a block again ATB, NM.

    excellent suggestion a brew is required for any and all projects no matter what they are. especially if you're hanging with friends. = )

    in upholstery work to glue leather. they use a special adhesive made from the ejaculate of bull elephants from africa. it is really expensive . There isnt really a shortage of Male Elephants in Africa bt you got to pay somebody to gather it fresh. (story told while using appropriate hand gestures )
