    New Woodworking tv program

    Just a heads up that there's a new woodworking program on Quest. It's called "Kings of the wood". Don't know if it's any good as I've just spotted it.

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    Thanks for the kind offer but too far away as I'm up in Lancashire. I'll try another merchant/manufacturer tomorrow (I sure they make windows) and if no joy, it's going to be oak

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    Thanks for the infor. I didn't know that. I thought it would get the paint off. Couldn't try it anyway as they wouldn't fit in the bin

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    Thanks for all your advice. I'll have another look for some iroko first, then if I can't find any local I'll go with the oak. First of all though I'm going to have a go at stripping the old paint from the cast iron ends. Will have a go at electrolysis, while I've got an empty wheelie bin. Should...

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    There is some oak local to me and the seller says it's 20% . Would this be suitable?

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    I've been told iroko but no one has it in stock round here. Would oak be suitable and if so (I don't know if this is a silly question) but what moisture content does it has to be for outdoors

    Outdoor bench slats recommendation

    I have a pair of cast iron bench ends and was wondering what timber you would recommend for the slats. I'm not bothered about the colour, I just want the best suitable timber

    Home vacuum advice please?

    I've got a couple of Henry's as well. Is there a DIY hack for making/using a better hose as I find the length isn't long enough. I've used a festool and the hose is so much better

    Alternative Saw Blade for Festool TS55

    Cheers for replies. I think i'll stick to a festool blade, so will go to ffx. I've just changed the guild strip so don't want to mess that up, by using a different blade.

    Alternative Saw Blade for Festool TS55

    I've been into my local shop for a new blade but they don't have any in stock and won't be getting any till the new year because of supply problems. Is there another make of blade anyone would recommend for the saw in question. I've seen some saxton blades cheap but no idea how good they are

    Is this the best bargain of the week?

    The shop has been there for years but I think it changed hands a few years back. I remember when I was a kid (showing my age now) going to our local hardwear shop to buy paraffin for some heaters we had in our house and that smell of these type of shops just takes me back to being a kid. I'll...

    Is this the best bargain of the week?

    Hi Brian, I was sent a link to your post where you rebuilt yours, regarding putting the belt on. You did an amazing job. I've now had a play with the sander, but I must admit I can't see myself using it as it just seems too fierce or aggressive, for anything I do. I think I'll go back and get...

    Thanks for that. I'll try the same method

    Is this the best bargain of the week?

    I popped into one of those old style ironmongery type shops this morning (you know the sort, the ones that sell everything and has that smell of paraffin) and on a bottom shelf covered in dust and oddments of boxes was this beast. The young lad asked if he could help and we had a chat about how...

    Advice about Kitchen worktop joint

    Looked it over again today and yep bad design. Asked designer how to do the joint (cos they are the experts and have fitted 100's and 1000's of kitchens before I became a designer) and got an "oh" "yeah" answer. Anyway, they are supplying another length cheap, so sorted. Will do joint like you...

    Advice about Kitchen worktop joint

    How would you join a laminated worktop in a kitchen where the induction hob has been designed to fit approx 25 mm from the joint/corner. I've thought about doing a normal worktop jig cut with the worktop bolts, glue and fit the worktop then remove the bolts after it has dried. Then cut the hob...
