Thanks, guys. And yes, this is on the wall of a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Winter Garden, FL - a suburb of Orlando.

Post: What Tool Is This?

Saw this hanging on the wall at a Cracker Barrel restaurant.  Can't figure this one out.  Any ideas?

Post: RE: Pope Benedict Casket

I say no. Can't see any scribe marks. They are all exactly the same length. But, they could be. Wouldn't you want the best woodworker building a casket for a Pope?

Don't use any oil that will cure over time.  BLO will cure.  If you use linseed oil, get the food safe linseed oil - not BLO.  Whatever oil you use, make sure it's pure and not mixed with solvents or ...
