    Quartz overlay kitchen worktops

    One thing to consider is the carcass base. These are still heavy, so if your base is on plastic adjustable feet, I would worry about their strength to support the extra weight. Also the flatness and stability of existing tops, any bow in them would cause a weak spot, prone to crack the overlay...

    Homemade cyclone dust collector collapsing

    Yep, that's why I always show this video for cyclone queries, very good solution. If you really want to delve into dust extractor, cyclone, impeller and motor sizing, then search for Bill Pentz, he takes it to a whole new level.

    any suggestions on how to do this cut?

    Flutting/barley twist jig for lathe. Maybe something like this? Or maybe this

    Homemade cyclone dust collector collapsing

    Have a look at Jim's cyclone on a camvac with relief valve, and why it's needed.

    any suggestions on how to do this cut?

    If its a one off, I'd go with a rigid tenon saw, or router and a flutting jig type assembly. Could go down the Dremmel route also, might be easier than other ways.

    New lathe

    If new, the record power coronet Herald should fit your bill. Small foot point, nice piece of kit. Got mine about 9 months back, been great little beast, everything from rings right up to 18" bowls. I went for it because of cast iron bed, previous record power had bed bars, which became a...

    Top tip

    You have to be careful with that stuff, you need to clean out the wound first, with a sterile cleaner. If you don't and you trap something nasty under the liquid skin, it can cause all sorts of nasties.

    Thanks for the link, took a look and I am certain it's the same as the Wikipedia photo. Great to have it cleared up, cheers.

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    Thanks, I had a mix of woods on the off cuts pallet I bought, described as oak, mahogany, iroko, tulip wood, and poplar. Someone else suggested those particular 3x2x40" lengths wood be either Tulip or Poplar, it don't feel like poplar to me, but never seen tulip wood before, so really just a...

    Things you say that got you into the dog house.

    Wife ... Does my bum look big in this? Husband... err, umm, well, No Darling, then for some inexplicable reason, his brain disconnects for a split second, and he goes on to say, ...Huge would be better description. He has been in Intensive Care for 10 days so far......

    Homemade cyclone dust collector collapsing

    You could add a vacuum/pressure relief valve to the barrel. https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/other-tools-accessories/how-to-make-an-'auto-resetting'-pressure-relief-valve-for-cyclones/

    Liberon Dutch oil and foam brushes, or cotton?

    Best to soak them with water and ĺeave flat out side. Crunching them up actually increases the risk of them self combustion

    A couple of newly turned Easter bowls. Small one oak, larger teddy bear bowl is Tulip Wood (Poplar?) I think. Each made from offcuts, salvaged from a door and kitchen joinery workshop.

    Drum Sander diy pre build question.

    I was only going to go to 14" Or 16" wide. Do you think it will still be too thin?

    Drum Sander diy pre build question.

    I think I'll make a simple under drum (sand flee type) this will allow me to flatten large rings, then I could face off the other side on the lathe if they're not parallel. I the mean time I can still use my Luthiers Friend type jig for my thin stock, as although I say there long, to me 36" is...
