    Needed a little stand for a glass dragon, and as I had a beech plank with a large knot, I decided to utilize it... Added a base and sides, so the recipient can put a tealight behind it And this is the effect (if the video will play)

    Planing services in London

    Hi all I am looking for a company/workshop that could help me plane down some beech planks from 35 to 30mm. I have a thickness planer, but neighbours are complaining, so thought it might be easier to just get these 15 planks prepared somewhere else, and just do the sawing and jointing at...

    Aldi Bandsaw ( new model) coming soon. Buy it or choose other model

    I have finally assembled mine, but not had time to test and adjust it yet, but everything looks good, nothing bent or damaged as far as I can see

    First time making sliding dovetails with the router table... Not perfect, but the mistakes are hidden :cool: It's a small (18 x 14 cm) shelf for a friend for her pot plant... Just needs a sanding, and she wants it stained white, so that's the next steps before installing on Sunday.

    Aldi Bandsaw ( new model) coming soon. Buy it or choose other model

    Aldi selling Ferrex Belt and Disc Sander

    I have one of those, and it is a useful machine, but I miss a proper disc sander, as the Triton's belt surface is sometimes just not high enough, which is a bit of a problem... When I grow up (if ever) I want a proper disc and belt sander :cool:

    XDP has a really rubbish tracking system... No updates on whether they actually tried to deliver, and now just giving me the message " This consignment is out for delivery and should be with you between N/A " 😖
