    Hello from Scotland [and perhaps soon to be Australia !]

    Sorry, no bobbin sander..... The first, local move [hopefully to Glenrothes] isn't going well: I have been out bid on two houses and wasn't fast enough to even get a bid in on two others.......and time is running out because I have sold my house and only have 7 weeks left in it.

    A Record compass plane.......I only used it for one job, then sold it 'cos I was broke. It was immaculate. I wished I'd kept it just for the sake of having it but really it was almost literally useless! I know where there is a rusty beat up one for £125.....but I'm not tempted by that.

    Another elm cabinet

    It seems I had a lot of elm years ago! This one used to house trophies but as you can see, it now has CDs. For these I made an oak liner 'bookcase'. Drawer handle is ebony.

    Elm / Birch wall cabinet

    I made two of these. The best one, with dovetailed main carcass, went as a wedding present. This one has biscuit joints, which is a bit of a cop out!

    Garage change of use - any pointers?

    I don't know the answer to the above but it is what I'm going to do with my new garage when I move house. I'm considering a roller garage door to cover the wall/window/door. This will improve security and visually nothing will change. I'm in Scotland so the BR might be different anyway. I'd...

    Tail Vise why dovetails?

    I have a cover-over bench top for grotty work made from MDF. I renew it from time to time, and the serious cabinet bench top remains pristine for when it is needed. That is a superb bench !^^^^^

    Hello from Scotland [and perhaps soon to be Australia !]

    I've just discovered this site after searching for ways to sell my machines. I suspect I'll be doing more than that though: seems like a cool place to be. So....I'm a keen cabinet maker and have been for many years. I have my own small workshop and usually use traditional hand cut...
