    Using flashing tape as roofing material

    One more thing, if possible apply both the primer and flash band in a warm room :) as it is much easier to work with

    Using flashing tape as roofing material

    Idealy the one that that is supplied with the flash band, but in reality most bitumin based primers would do.

    Using flashing tape as roofing material

    There are larger sized roll's available that would do what you need, I can't think why you should not use it as it is easy to apply and if done right should look just fine,don't forget to use a primer first :)

    Leylandi burns well when dry and is very resinous but if your stove is working ok and burning at the right temperature then you should have no problem with it,have burnt several large ones over the years with no issues:)

    Siberian Larch offcuts. Keep or not?

    Bird/Bat boxes(y). Or Laminate them together with contrasting wood layers for turning or band saw boxes etc, mind you the temp in my shop is dropping fast so kindling for the wood burner would be my choice ;);)

    Drill guide

    Make your own simple guide from a off cut , use maybe 1/2 or 3/4 " thick, cut hole with your bit then clamp/fix over your piece and drill through both with the top piece acting as a guide .As said though a drill press is the way to go if you have the cash/space for one. :)

    A new bench for my bandsaw

    Looks plenty chunky enough although you could have issues with long boards and a tendency to want to tip,splayed legs on ready made frames are the norm to help reduce this:)
