    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...

    Kitchen Knife Set - Recommendations Please?

    As the title suggests, I am looking to get myself a nice kitchen knife set, but don’t really know where to start. Ideally I don’t want to spend more than £200 for a set of around 5 kitchen knives, but would stretch that slightly for the right set. I do a lot of cooking with fresh ingredients...

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

    After a manic few months of being the busiest i’ve ever been at work i’ve finally had a little over a week off work. So i decided to make myself a pair of computer monitor stands as both (non adjustable) monitors i use in work are too low and a stack of paper under each wasnt cutting it, so just...

    Where to buy wide belt sander abrasives individually?

    As per the title, I would like to buy a couple of different grit wide belt sander abrasives. These aren’t cheap and seem to only be sold in multiples of 10, but i only want a couple. Does anyone have a source where I could buy individual belts from which are ideally around 600mm wide?

    Calling all entomologist - i hope these aren't wood borers

    Panicking a little bit now. I grabbed a piece of ash from my wood storage in the workshop which was near enough stored against the wall, to find a few of these little beetle bug looking things crawling over the surface against the wall. I cant see any bug holes, but worried that these are some...

    **SOLD** 1 micron cartridge filter for large dust extractor

    ***SOLD*** I recently upgraded the filter on my Axminster T-2000CK-200H Dust Extractor to a HEPA rated filter, so this one that originally came with the extractor is surplus to requirements. This would be ideal for improvising improved filtration for some dust extractors, or an addition to a...

    Where do people buy their metal stock from?

    As per the title, i’d like to know if people have a specific website that they like to buy their metal stock from? I’ve bought some chunky brass rods from ebay before, but no idea if ebay prices are the norm, or is it a bit of a rip off? I’m just getting started, so a good cheap source of...

    An alternative(ish) to painters pyramids

    Just a quick tip (no pun intended). Been using these for a while but thought others might want to try making them too. Very simple, just some glue gun glue sticks cut to length, tip cut with a knife, and an appropriate sized hole drilled into scrap, and hey presto some grippy non-marking...

    What kind of lathe could I get for around £600?

    I’ve been woodworking for quite a while now, but i’m very keen to get more into metalworking. I’ve done a few bits and bobs, mostly by hand, and also done a little brass turning by hand on my wood lathe. Apart from the above I did some work on a metal lathe back in schoool as well as a summer...

    Does anyone here speak/read Japanese? Markings on Kataba Saw

    This Saw was an auction find. Although assumed to be a little old due to the slight surface rust, the teeth are extremely sharp and the Saw looks barely used. It’s a massive Saw compared to the other Gyokucho ones I have. It looks to be very well made, possible hand made based on the thickness...

    I've been itching for another tattoo for a while and would love a woodwork related tattoo, but struggling for inspiration of exactly what to get. If anyone has any woodwork related tattoos i'd love to see photos :D

    WIP - Overly decorative shoe rack shelf type thing

    I looked at this project as an excuse to get in some practice at more curvy/sculptural type work. So I sketched some designs for the feet. Once happy with the shape I drew it full size and accurate, using some French curves to refine the sweeping curves. Once drawn properly on paper I then cut...

    Yet another “What wood is this”... sorry!

    I recently won a box of random pieces of wood at an auction. These two interesting pieces of wood are both beautiful and I would love to get more of them if I can, but unfortunately I have no idea what they are! The first piece is very dense and heavy. Definitely some kind of exotic...

    Is this 3 phase or single phase?

    Hi, i’m looking at a thicknesser for sale about an hour from me, but not sure if its single phase or 3 phase. The guy selling isnt sure as its stuff from a late relative’s workshop. Based on his description and on these photos it appears to be wired directly to a consumer unit or some kind...
