Olde Good Things – Best Buys with Alan Mendelson

Friday, December 30th, 2011

When you shop here you will say “I’ve never seen anything like this!” And unless you have traveled back in time you haven’t. Olde Good Things describes itself as an architectural salvage company that rescues old building materials, old furniture and artifacts and creates stylish furniture that will fit any home. These are, for the most part, unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that can be the centerpiece of any home. You’ll find copper that was rescued from old buildings in New York City that was fabricated into mirror frames and table lamps. There are tables made from salvaged wood from buildings and from the boardwalk of a seaside resort. Table legs are made from industrial legs for machines. The wood from toppled rare mahogony trees was cut into table tops. Church pews were shortened and made into benches that will fit into your home. Window frames from landmark buildings were converted into mirror frames. Fireplace mantles from suites in magnificent old hotels were rescued and can be installed in your home. There are old refinished chairs from soda fountains. You’ll find iron gates that were turned into tables, and rescued wood Filing Cabinets that are almost a hundred years old, and old time factory carts that were converted into unique cocktail tables. And you can dress up your home with original doorknobs from buildings built in the 19th century.

Olde Good Things has two locations: 11240 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, and you can call this store at (310) 477-8444. There is another store at 1800 South Grand Avenue in Downtown L.A. and you can call this location at (213) 746-8600. Or go to their website at for information.

How do I put the runners on my filing cabinet?

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

I’ve bought a filing cabinet from Staples and the diagrams are very unclear. I’ve fixed the runners to the base unit with the wheels on the front and the runners on the drawers with the wheels at the back. When I put the drawer on the runners it was set too high up. What have I done wrong and what should I do to sort it out?

The runners on the base unit should be about 1/8 th of an inch from the bottom of the drawer opening.
When putting the drawer in the drawer wheels should slide behind the base runner wheels and into the runner.

Hand Cutting Cabinet Formica Plastic Lamiante

Monday, December 26th, 2011 You can cut Formica plastic laminate for cabinets or counters with hand snips. This is how to fit the material to curved areas or use them while doing resurfacing work. This hand tool work greats when you have to fit the material too crooked walls or cut out odd shapes.

Important note: Always remember, the left side of the snips is going to be the best side of the material cut. The right side generally gets small burrs or chips so the edge is not useful.

We have used these hand cutters for fitting plastic laminate for cabinets and countertops for many years. They are a real life saver when you are fitting pieces during re-laminating a kitchen or bathroom vanity cabinet.

You just have to be very careful to not rip the material while working the snips. It would be wise to practice hand cutting a piece of plastic laminate first before working on the actual piece you will be gluing to the cabinet or top.

If you were wondering how to cut Formica by hand watch the video.

How many frogs can you fit in a filing cabinet?

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

I have been challenged to fill a two-drawer filing cabinet with 1000 frogs. The forgs are about three inches in length. Do you think this is possible?

I have just done this as well, I wasnt easy but with a bit of alignment you can. The trouble is the little blighters keep trying to get out and you end up with more frogs on the floor than in the cabinet, so you need a few extra ones to replace the frogs that get away.
Good luck.
