That looks like an express nail, not a bolt. Not that easy to remove something fastened to a wall with those things without making a mess.

yeah, if you dont have access to hammer it out from behind, the only option really is to cut it.

Thanks guys basically Im making new gates and want to move them up closer towards the front side of house. I have access to hammer/drills and lots of other basic tools. So my bet bet would be to beat it out with a sledge hammer maybe

Total overkill and you'll possibly do more harm than good.

Grind it flush with an angle grinder or split the wood off it and see if the anchor will drive further into the hole. It very well may do.

Don't go smacking it with a sledge. In any case, it might be better to be asking this in the DIY forum I think as it's not much to do with woodcraft.

If it is an anchor bolt and you can get access to a Hole saw set

Select a Hole saw cutter slightly bigger than the circumference of the anchor

Using the drill bit - guide it into to the hole in the anchor cuting the timber around the anchor you go. When complete you can tap off the circular cut timber from around the anchor bolt and get access to it. Either to take the timber dow, hammer the anchor in all the way, etc

Done this lots of time and it works. Just need access to a Hole saw set

Small ash burl bowl with milliput filling for the really punky bits. Finished with thinned cellulose sealer, yorkshire grit (regular and microfine) and hampshire sheen wax (original, not the high gloss stuff). Came out nice.









It's not very big (it was only a small blank and burl blanks are unpleasantly expensive), but it's big enough to mount a stuffed fox in

I am based in Limerick so if there are any other woodworkers around here, I would love to meet 🙂
Hi Brane (hope getting name right),
I've been meaning to pick up that very router for a cpl of years now and make a router table. I'm very close to Limerick, If you have a spare hour some Saturday afternoon, drop me a pm.

just using up some smaller bits and bobs of wood i have knocking around, to make eggcups. the two at the back are cherry and the wood is a bit bland, two at the front are some sort of sycamore or maple (i arrived on scene after the tree had been chopped down but blagged some of it)

Mallet

Made a quirky little mallet last weekend to sit between my tiny woodcarving one and my steel cored "basher" in size!

Just started work on a large-ish natural edge bowl from an ash blank I've had lying around for a while. The bark is in great condition on it, but is a bit uninteresting colour wise, compared to if you were doing something similar in, say, yew, so I'm thinking of charring the bark a little. The ash is a nice pale colour, so I think it would make a great contrast. Any thoughts?

I'll post some photos when it's finished .. if I have all my fingers left that is

Front left definitely looks like fiddleback sycamore.

Nice job.

Nothing fancy, just plain old practical. This woodwork addiction has left me with the dreaded, I want more tools disease , which has resulted in non stop tool purchases for many years

Now I have to find a more permanent home for some, instead of in the house.
So with a few bits of ply hanging around, I knocked up this as a place to keep them safe from harm in my shed

Am I right in thinking that all the weight is taken by that one knot in the rope at the bottom of that chair?

If that knot fails, there's a nice big bit of timber pointing right at your arse.
