    MFT worktops, uses etc

    There's a bloke on youtube who's made up his own using a couple of butt hinges. It looks pretty good - I’ve been meaning to try it out but haven't had time. The channel is Conkcat and the first clip is at:

    MFT Question

    Given that you already have the parf guide system and assuming your benchtop is about 18mm thick (so that you can feed the festool type clamps through the dog holes) why not drill out your current top with an mft grid over the whole area, but only using the 3mm setup holes. You can then easily...

    Nail Gun

    +1 for the Aldi gun. I’ve had the Ferex (lithium battery) gun for about a year and it’s been fine. Reliable, portable and not too heavy. Currently about £85.

    Kitty Best Combi 2000

    I used to have one of these. Following up on Dhenry's point, the 2000 also has a red stop button at each end, with a safety interlock between them. BOTH buttons have to be pulled out before the planer or saw motors will start.

    Nail finder

    I use reclaimed timber almost exclusively: I first deal with any obvious nails, screws bolts etc etc, then go over it with a coarse belt sander or angle grinder to remove finish, embedded dirt or grit, then use the Little Wizard to pick up any remaining metal. It’s not perfect but it does for...

    Nail finder

    I've used a 'Little Wizard' metal detector from Rutlands for the last 5 years or so. It has worked well for me on salvaged demolition timber. Currently £30, but out of stock at Rutlands.

    Shelf pin drilling/routing system

    I have the Mk II Parf guide system for drilling 20mm holes a la MFT worktop. As an added advantage, this is perfect for drilling accurate 3mm holes at 32, 48 and 96mm centres, vertically and accurately. Coupled with Hafele 3mm pins as suggested by Jonathan S, job done.

    No probs, I quite fancy building a couple of these. Are you making the legs detachable so the beds stack for storage?

    Neophyte said he was going to try again with pva glue. My suggestion was based on this

    No probs. May I suggest using the plastic straw trick to remove glue from the mortises?

    H Hi, Looks comfy! Did you consider notching the laminations pre glue up to form the mortices for the slats, rather than cutting them after?

    Hi, nice job! I didn’t have a pocket screw thingy and went for exposed countersunk stainless screws (Spax). Expensive but look pretty good and easy to strip down when refinishing required.

    Thanks and sorry, I haven’t a clue what the plants are. I am definitely not a gardener!

    Not my latest project, but a pair of folding Adirondack chairs I made a couple of years ago using a Veritas design I bought from Axminster. The wood was salvaged from shopfronts when Blackburn Market was demolished. I think it’s iroko. I also used it on a folding table I built to suit a tight...

    Bluetooth/FM enabled ear-defenders

    I've had the Ion Tough Sounds for about 3 years now and I've been very happy with them. The only 'fault' is that they are quite a tight fit on my fat head!
