How To Package & Send Large Parcels - UK & International

In this video I'm going to talk about how I package and send large items within the UK and internationally too.  I know that sounds really boring, but I do this quite often so I've got some good tips which I think are worth sharing, and I've seen a few people asking about this in woodworking groups and forums.

Making A Herringbone Beech & Mahogany Side Table

 
In this video I made a mahogany and beech herringbone design side table with a pedestal base.  The sort of table you'd perch a drink on beside your sofa!
I started by cutting all the mahogany pieces to a consistent length at the mitre saw, and then I ripped them all to a consistent width at the tablesaw.  I figured I could use these to form a herringbone pattern, but the problem was that I didn't really have much material to work with.

Making A Mid Century Style Step Stool / Foot Stool

In this video I use a salvaged mahogany wardrobe panel to make a step stool (or foot stool) with a mid century feel.  
First I cut a clean and straight edge along the length of the panel using my circular saw with a straight edge clamped down to guide the cut.  
Then I could reference that straight edge against the fence of my panel cutting jig at the tablesaw so that I could cut make a clean 90 degree cross cut.
I measured and marked up to cut what would be the length for the top panel of the stool.
And then I ripped it to width.
