    Thanks for your reply. I am looking to staple the  mitre joint and I was wondering since we can find cut nails, may be we can find cut staples to bring the joint together.

    hand cut staples for picture frames
    I am helping out a friend and making some picture frames with reclaimed wood .... nightmare.
     
    The frames are mitred and using dominos. The reference is from the front so if the backs are not flush is ok
     
    I wanted to have a couple of hand cut old time staples.
     
    Do they exist?
     
    Where would I get such a thing?
     
    Muchas gracias

    I use Sikkens Cetol 1 for the First coat and Sikkens Cetol 23 for the second and third coat. If you live in California find a friend in Vegas or Arizona ...

    Bohnhoff lumber. Good family. Also Saroyan Lumber. Stratta Wood Products. I was treated like crap at Penn Forest and will never step in. Try also Peterman Lumber.

    My woodpecker squares. I did not want to spend that much money but my cross cuts are so much better.

    Mike you are right. My grill and fireplace fell down. Did I tell you about my next big project? Forno di legno in the corner, new outdoor fireplace, new grill, plus a fire pit and Santa Maria grill.

    There is a genre called "americana" that is sort of a mix of folk, bluegrass & Blues. Check out bands like The String Cheese Incident, Railroad Head, Punch Brothers, Greensky Bluegrass, The Motet, The Wood Brothers, Asleep at the Wheel, Great American Taxi, The Greencards, The Flatlanders. There are so many more ... these are all new guys.
