    Burr Walnut

    It's in East London but I believe they do mail order. It's probably not sensible to visit the warehouse like I did. The temptation is just so great. I could have spent a fortune there! Fantastic place. https://www.capitalcrispin.com/veneers.php#W

    The occasional table? Seems about right for materials, time & profit. Wouldn't want one though.

    Finger Belt Sander

    Thanks guys. I think it’s going to be the Silverline. The Makita looks good but a bit bulky for the first job it need to do.

    Finger Belt Sander

    It's one of those tools that from time to time I think would be useful. That thought has just now happened once too often and a finger sander now needs to be purchased. But which one? I don't want cheap & cheerful, something mid range plus? It's not that I'm going to use it too much, I just...

    Cut string staircase, is it the work of the devil?

    And 18 months later ............. Thanks for all the replies, it made me think and to have a go myself, well, with my nephew as well who did most of the work. I looked at what "might" solve the problem without doing any real damage should it not work, and taking on board all the helpful...

    Staircase spindle movement

    I've just "restored" our staircase and have attached a photo. The spindles are recessed in a square rebate and a nosing then over the top, not my design, that's what it originally was. They all had to be adjusted as over time they had all moved/shrunk but it wasn't that obvious because of the...

    So many angles on this. I retired 12 years ago and at the start it was everything I wanted, except for the loss of day to day human contact. It got to the point where I was grateful when the postman knocked on the door to hand over a parcel. Someone to chat to! Don't get me wrong, I've got good...

    Is pressurised hot water worth it, with oil?

    We had combis for years which were great until more than one outlet was turned on. For example, I would be having a shower, my wife would decide to run a bath, or the washing machine would be turned on, and I then got a cold shower. The problem was not so much the boiler, it was 40KW, it was the...

    Floating shelf brackets

    Bad, bad, very bad memories have been resurrected. I had to put up 3 oak shelves, 1800mm long that had been provided with hidden bars. Each shelf had 4 individual bars to fit. Hell on bloody earth!! Especially in a 140 year old plaster over bricks embedded with lumps of flint and the like...

    Circular vs square

    I’m talking about palm sanders here. Is there any difference/advantage/disadvantage between using a palm sander with a circular disc as opposed to a square cut? Cheers
