Birch Plywood Bathroom Shelving

In this video I make a birch plywood shelving unit to sit behind the mirror doors of our bathroom cabinet.  I cut housing grooves (dados) and rebates (rabbets) for the joinery using the table saw.

Grooving blade: https://amzn.to/2N4MnSl (UK) please note, this fits my table saw which has a 30mm arbour bore - adapter rings and other blade sizes are available too

Built In Bathroom Cabinet

In this video I start on a new project to build a built in, floor to ceiling bathroom cabinet as part of our bathroom renovation in our 1930s bungalow.  There was an old cabinet here with mirror doors and I wanted to give the cabinet more depth for additional storage space and also improve it aesthetically, as it was a real eye sore!  I use construction timber and birch plywood for the face frame.

Making A Balance Board

In this video I make a balance board.. Also known as a wobbel board / wobble board I think?  Using thin plywood and bent lamination.  This is a great toddler / small child gift idea - I wasn't sure I really understood the idea until I saw my neice playing with it and then it all made sense! A great way for little ones to be able to learn balance and coordination skills, and it can be used either way up!  A great toy - kids love it.

A Cheaper Mirka DEROS Random Orbital Sander? Let's Compare!

In this video I'm comparing the Mirka DEROS random orbital sander (which I have owned since February 2018) with a cheaper alternative Hyvst 350w sander from China. This random orbital sander appears to be the same machine as those available under different brand names: Sealey DAS150PS,  Menzer ETS 150, Pela ROS090, Delrem and possibly some others - although please note: I don't know for sure if they are actually all the same machine with the same components.

Making A Bathroom Sink Floating Cabinet (and LOTS of mistakes)

In this video I talk about a recent project where I make a sink unit for our bathroom and lots of mistakes!!!  This one was a bit of a nightmare, things just kept going wrong!

Making A Rocking Chair (Mid Century Modern) #KPWBCC2020

In this video I make a mid century modern style rocking chair; which could also be an armchair by removing the rockers (or rollers!) for the Karl Pope Woodcraft Build A Chair Challenge 2020.  The chair is made from hardwood salvaged from doors and windows taken from our home renovation works.

Free Hardwood? Yes please! Salvaging & Milling Timber

In this video I salvage some wood from some hardwood window frames and doors.  There was a real mixture of solid timber, laminated and fingerjointed staves of hardwood and face veneers, but well worth the effort!  Free wood is the best kind of wood. I'm not sure what species of wood these are, there's probably some meranti and mahogany in there among others...  This wood will be used to build a rocking chair for the Karl Pope Woodcraft Build A Chair Challenge on 5th December.
