    CNC help in Bristol?

    Thanks to Chris, finally sorted the darn box out. 3 months I procrastinated on this probably becuase I was sure the design would fail. Works ok though drawer runners laid horizontally are not the best. Had to be supported at the back by a peg and rail to keep it from being too loose.

    CNC help in Bristol?

    Thank you all, what a fab community :) Chris has kindly offered to help and is fairly close so won't involve anyone posting stuff. I'll post the result here :)

    CNC help in Bristol?

    Long shot I know but is there anyone in the general West or SW Bristol area that could help CNC a design into the lid of a project for my daughter? Making her a ear ring storage unit to keep them away from her cats :) I'd like to engrave a treble cleft into the lid in order to fill it with...

    Advice needed : repair walking cane

    Update :) With the excellent help of Alasdair and associate, we managed to drill out the old metal rod and insert a long new oak dowel. This will not give the same strength as the old pin but will allow the two ends to be securely fixed. I'll now look on fleabay for a short length of brass...

    Advice needed : repair walking cane

    I am certainly going to caveat any repair with an email saying it is put back together but might not be suitable for walking. He has had it for many years and I think there is a huge element of nostagia. Thank you all for the very helpful comments. I do love this community :)

    Advice needed : repair walking cane

    Oh, that is a fab idea! See, just needed a lateral thinker :) Not sure if they make hole saw's that small but will have a look. Plug cutters might not go far enough down edit : darn, of course, hole saws need the centre drill bit to guide them and the steel shaft stops that.

    Advice needed : repair walking cane

    Wonder if any kind soul can offer some advice. An elderly village resident I remotely know dropped round and said he head I "did" woodworking. He had an old walking cane that came apart and wondered if I can put it back together. Naively I thought "how hard can that be" and said I would be...

    Side table for settee/armchair

    Thank you. Nope, I ust made sure the grain runs front to back to give the joints more support. It is surprisingly rigid and holds a fair bit of weight (thus far!). Really meant only for drinks etc. The first prototype only had one of the legs and was wildly unstable but 2 seems perfect.

    Side table for settee/armchair

    Small project to use 2 bits of walnut acquired cheap. The foot slips under the char body and gives somewhere to put beers/coffees aside from an armrest. They are both the same colour but photo badly , think it is the grain direction. Bit of a mistake on the bevels .. but there you go :)

    Curved laminated leg side table

    After a few failed attempts, finally managed to get a laminated leg that I was reasonably happy with using. The project was initiated to use up a slab of wood I had lying around and did not want to waste. Was also a chance to add a bit of resin .. and yes, it leaked all over the bench :)...
