    Kitchen wood worktops

    Woodwork, noise and neighbours

    Interested to see this topic as i had a run in with my neighbour about a year ago, it was 8.45 in the morning on a weekday. I work on the principle that 8.30 on a weekday and Saturday and not on a Sunday. If your neighbour had work being done in his house by a builder he would expect to start...

    Kitchen wood worktops

    We have a Beech (i think) wood worktop, it's about 6/7 years old now. It has had quite regular cleans an re-oils with Tung oil. Is there a better oil for this, i have seen boiled linseed oil recommended but then i read it is for outside furniture. It seems there are as many views on this as...

    Small drill, hard wood, what's the best lubricant?

    The mention of better drills is very true, i looked at sets up to 10mm there are loads ranging in price around the £30.00 mark. I came to a Dormer set £ get what you pay for. Dormer are excellent drills as i remamber from my apprenticship days. As 'Rico' says speed is...

    Tung oil versus Dainish oil

    Thanks for the replies, i looked at the chair about 45 later and it was dry. Like i said the wood has been starved of any finish for years i should think. I have not used wirewool, i have use one of those nylon type abrasives, it states it is the same as 000 wirewool. Going by what you say i...

    Chair repair

    Thanks for the replys, i will make a strip and glue it in, cheers. I was hoping that once the wood has had a couple of coats of oil that it would close the small ones up. It is cleaning up quite well except for the water stains, even some of those fade after a bit of sanding. I can't understand...

    Bandsaw motor problem

    Capacitors can fail but still look in good condition, they can be tested but not easily at home. You could look for a company that would test them bit i think their charge may equal the cost of new ones.
