    Faceplate ring

    Don't have one myself, but maybe make a thin ply disc, with a small centre hole and made to the same width as the inside diameter of the ring. Use something pointed to locate this at the centre of the stock, Slip the ring around this and screw in position. Or something along these lines..........

    You’d think postage would be included

    Not so much a plane to use - as a plane to buy and sell. Which reflects the punchline of the old joke-'These aren't eating potatoes,- these are buying and selling potatoes' It's only worth what someone will actually pay. Until you've hooked your Mug, its all 'Pie in the sky' . Which leads to the...

    Hi there, The Leylandii was fun to turn - big ribbon shavings and very wet. At times it felt like turning in a rain -shower. Will only be able to fully appreciate the look, when it's finished. My son rates the wood quite highly. He and his boss planked a large Leylandii, several years ago, and...

    Not finished, but part turned wet wood, bowls - freshly turned and full of promise. Have now placed them in a couple of paper sacks to season until around this time next year. The larger ones are Leylandii, the smaller ones Yew. The Leylandii came down in the recent winter storms, the Yew was...

    I envy you your citrus and olive trees. I've been trying to grow a lemon tree, with little success.for several years. It only has one leaf left on it, so I think it's finally died.☹

    The apple tree, by the workshop is covered in blossom this year. The most covered it's ever been. No one would have thought that after storm Arwen, when it blew over and had to be propped up and re-staked, that it would have recovered so well. It reminds me of one of those frothy blossom laden...

    Leaking timber front door - how to fix?

    You should be able to take the panel out and reseal it without any problem. Your arrow seems to indicate that the leak is coming in at the base of the inner side moulding. In which case, this would indicate that the inner beads have also been applied, rather than worked on the stiles...

    Getting a fixing into very hard hollow bricks

    Frame- fixings with a squirt of 5 minute PU glue in the hole, before inserting the fixing, and wait a while before screwing fixing home. Also works on lime-plastered, rough-stone walls.

    Roof support Conservatory

    My goodness that's a large wodge of wood up there. Can't see a reason for it unless it's part of the overall design to accommodate any large soil pipes at he back of a building.

    4.4mt x 6.8mt Workshop In a Grade 2 listed Property

    Looks pretty good to me. Reminds me of a granary at a farm in Eynsford, where I once worked . It was lifted up on saddle-stones, all.very 'Country Living'. It was available for rent as a workshop, but was too small for me at that time. Fast forward to now and it would suit me just fine. I note...

    Workbench with Record & Fortis woodwork and engineers vice £50

    Looks to be pretty robust joiners bench. The vices alone are worth more that that, The clamp on the left might need some attention ,though the whole thing should clean up nicely. Might be worth sorting out an apron piece for the whole front of the bench ( not have it just behind the vice, as at...

    A whistle in D, made with pear wood and brass. Looks the part, but the sound needs improving. Very much a Mark 1. Have enough wood for a further five whistles. Here's hoping that by the Mk 6. the sound will be better!

    Opinions on these ex-school workshop workbenches.

    I noticed from your photos, that the benches have been heightened with a couple of softwood blocks to their base. Lots of school stuff seems to be less than standard height- remember those improbably small chairs from junior school. My own bench - modelled on one from a college I worked at...

    Something for the weekend.....

    I love the wood-pile, it's very sculptural - a monochrome version of Monet's Haystacks,

    A thing-ummy-bob to aid drilling long holes on a lathe, along with a mandrel to help turn the outside diameter, afterwards,
