How To Make A Beeswax & Oil Furniture Polish For Wood Finishing

In this video I’ll be demonstrating how I my own oil wax wood finishing product.
 
But first, I thought I'd explain why, as there were a few reasons
 
Firstly I’ve recently run out of Briwax which is a product that I use quite often as a finish, at least for items I make that don’t need a lot of protection from moisture.
 

Making A Teleprompter / Autocue

In this video I make a simple teleprompter / autocue to help speed up my workflow for filming 

Making A Sander Cabinet

In this video I make a simple wall mounted cabinet to hold my sander, sanding discs and wet and dry paper.

Storage Rack For Sheet Materials (Plywood, OSB, MDF, Chipboard, Melamine etc)

In this video I'm going to build a sheet materials storage rack to hold all my plywood, OSB, melamine, chipboard and MDF.
I've already done a 3D drawing using SketchUp to design what I want to make.  I designed the rack to be as compact as possible but also have the ability to hold a full 8ft by 4ft sheet.  It's not often I use full sheets, because most of my work is with reclaimed materials but I still want the ability to be able to store them.  

How To Make A Leather Strop - For Honing Your Cutting Edge

In this video I demonstrate how I made my leather strop and make six new ones using leather and hardwood ply offcuts

For sharpening I use the following items:

Restoring Two Old Spokeshaves

I donned a pair of gloves for this as it was about to get messy.
I'd start the cleaning process with some 80 grit abrasive paper and some 220 grit wet and dry paper stuck to a melamine board with some sticky back tape.
I started cleaning up the top of the cap iron, and eventually revealed that it was made by Record, which was a pleasant surprise. 
So here I'm just removing the rust, I'm not trying to make it look new like it just came out of the factory, I actually like my tools to look like they've had some use.

Making A Small Air Filtration Unit (FAIL)

In this video I'm going to be making a small air filtration unit for my workshop.

Making A Large Beam Compass

I looked through my scrap pile and found a piece of what I think is ash, which measured 600mm in length and 27mm square.
I'd start by drilling a hole for the pencil, and using calipers I measured the width of a pencil at 7mm.  I drilled a 7mm hole, but that was a bit tight so I came back with an 8mm bit, and then the pencil could slide in.
