    Can anybody recommend a structural engineer?

    Thanks for the offer, but the design standards that we use in the UK is specific to the UK. I would have no idea what design standards are the correct ones to use in Morocco. It might be worth you contacting your local authority or your equivalent of Building Control to see if they can recommend...

    Can anybody recommend a structural engineer?

    I happen to be a structural engineer and also do a lot of timber frame design myself, but i’d recommend finding someone local to you. Try searching the search facility on the Institution of Structural Engineers website...

    Advice needed from more experienced furniture makers - should I mitre the corners?

    I personally quite like the hole to the corner. It also helps show the thickness of the burr and highlights the fact that it’s a solid panel rather than a veneer. Ah, makes sense now! :)

    Advice needed from more experienced furniture makers - should I mitre the corners?

    I know I was probably overthinking it with the mitres, but I wasn’t sure how much movement to expect there over the years. Thanks for all of the great advice! When you say scribing it, do you mean like a butt joint? Butt jointing it was the only other method i could think of doing it, but...

    Advice needed from more experienced furniture makers - should I mitre the corners?

    Shamefully I’ve not worked on any more of the TV cabinet/sideboard for a couple of years since the main cabinet was complete and living in the house. I could use the excuse of a lack of time or other priorities, but truthfully it’s more than likely because in the back of my mind I didn’t have...

    Oak Beam Fireplace

    This is the fixing method at the back of the uprights. One top and one bottom. I found the sweet spot thickness to ensure that the fixings actually pull the uprights towards the wall, so it sits as flush as possible to the wall. It’s done the job perfectly for nearly the last 5years

    Oak Beam Fireplace

    I cant find any old photos showing what it looks like. If i remember tomorrow i’ll lift it all off the wall to take a photo to show you. The recess is just a chunk routered out of the rear to allow for the thickness of the hooks while connected together

    Oak Beam Fireplace

    For the fire surround i made a few years ago i used the below fixings to secure them to the wall. I first saw these fixings on a corner sofa and thought they’d be perfect. I made a recess to the rear of the uprights so it’s flush to the wall. Two fixings to each upright, one to the top and one...

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    I’ve just finished making a magnetic knife holder for my new knives 😁 (as discussed in the general off topic post). I’ve had this nicely figured board (I bought it as sweet chestnut) for a few years, so hopefully this does the board some justice. Also plenty of room for any possible future...

    That’s some beautifully scribed sides against the stone there matmac. What method did you use to achieve such accurate results?

    Masks and Specs and Beards and Shopping

    Being bearded I use one of these Virustatic Shields which are both suitable for beards. I also have a rather large cranium, but although a little on the tight side (one size fits all) these masks are pretty comfortable to wear. I can't however comment on wearing glasses with one of these though...

    Kitchen Knife Set - Recommendations Please?

    Thanks all for the great advice and suggestions. I decided to slightly up my budget and I took the plunge on a 200mm chef knife, 250mm bread knife and a 120mm utility/parting knife in the Kasumi HM Hammered knives (VG-10 steel). These three knives should be all I need for now and they’ll...

    Kitchen Knife Set - Recommendations Please?

    Well there are loads of suggestions here. Food for thought indeed. Lots of recommendations for the Global knives. They may be excellent knives, but i'm not sure if i like the looks of them or the handles. The handles on the larger Global knives don't look very comfortable... do any Global...

    WIP - A pair of computer monitor stands - sculpted Walnut legs and Yew top

    Thanks Andy! I just wish i had thought to take more photos at the start of the project. I was finding it very difficult to keep the legs standing up in the precise location to be accurately marked out with a pencil or knife, hence it occurred to me to try using tape. I'll be using that trick...
