    Scheppach Basata 3 Vario - does anyone have a user manual/

    AHhh thanks a lot. It's not the best of manuals, but then in my opinion it's also not much of a saw!! I can't say I've used it much - I don't remember it costing me the earth when I bought it second had some time ago - back then, I'd just started out in this hobby. Originally, I'd hoped to...

    Just a thought - why don't we have a workshop build forum

    Mods? Would this be possible? You only need to look at the current threads on there - 80% workshop build topics.

    Just a thought - why don't we have a workshop build forum

    It seems that this forum - because of the catch-all title, and perhaps because the majority of people like me don't actually really produce enough proper projects to post new threads/photos, but this forum seems increasingly to be about workshop builds. This is absolutely not a criticism of...

    Best ebony stain?

    THanks for all the replies. I am not convinced I want to purchase Ebony - for many of the reasons stated above, plus the fact that I just don't think the quality of my work is worth buying ebony (and the postage)! I'm very intrigued by the walking sticks comment.... I will keep an eye out!

    Best ebony stain?

    Morning all, I wanted to make some small ebony finials, but the all important piece is missing..... the ebony! But i do have lots of off cuts of sycamore which being so pale I thought I could stain black. Does anyone have recommendations for the best stain for this? Thanks. Tim

    Festool vouchers - dust extractor and 18v tools

    Morning all, Not sure if they are transferable, but as a "valued Festool customer" (by which they really mean my credit card company!!) I received two vouchers for £50 off either any Festool dust extractor, or anything from their 18v tool range. I won't be using them, but can pop them in the...

    Radial arm saw - are they worth having?

    Personally I found mine a pain to set up to keep square in relation to the table top and you can't rip. With limited space, a table-saw serves me far better and I was glad to have sold mine.

    Staining Ash to resemble Oak

    THanks folks - I'll see if I get time to have a play this weekend. I have been given a tin of Liberon Bison Wax - Medium Oak. Although It's a good point well raised about messing about with the cost and time involved with wax and stain when I could just go get some from the merchant....

    Staining Ash to resemble Oak

    Morning all, A friend wanted some simple kitchen shelves made - nothing fancy, but he did ask for Oak. I have a load of Ash in stock that is the right size and would make my life easier than having to buy anything new. Any advice on a good durable finish suitable for shelves, which will also...

    Nice little project to use some offcuts.

    Really nice - how do you create those curves, lamination and steaming?
