Making Bedside Tables / Night Stands : ONE HAND CHALLENGE

In this video I make a pair of solid hardwood bedside tables, or night stands using only one hand - my "non-dominant" left hand for a challenge set by Leo Winstanley at the Hand-I-Craft YouTube channel.

This build is made entirely from salvaged materials - the oak came from some old kitchen cabinet doors taken from our house renovation, and the mahogany was salvaged from a church refurbishment site a few years ago.

Repairing & Restoring Ercol Windsor 608 / 684 ? Dining Chairs

In this video I'll be repairing and restoring a set of mid century modern Ercol Windsor 608 or 684 dining chairs made in 1960 on behalf of a client. This is a furniture repair and restoration video.

The main problems with the chairs were loose glue joints in both the spindles that support the backrest, and in the chair frames that support the seat pad.  In addition to that, the finish on the chairs was badly worn and needed rejuvenating.

Making A Walnut Trunk Storage Box

In this video I make a storage trunk box for our bedroom. This woodworking project was all about hiding some pipes in a wall, but the box will also provide some storage space for bed sheets etc. and it's a good height for use as a seat.  The main box was made using offcuts of walnut veneered MDF left over from a dartboard cabinet commission that I made for a client a few months back.  The solid wood trim is a mystery wood, but it might be Iroko...?

Making A Shoe Cabinet & Coat Storage - Birch Plywood

In this video I make a shoe storage cabinet and a hat and coat rack for our newly renovated entrance hall using some birch plywood with a nod to mid century modern style.  Plywood furniture is not always popular with everyone, but I really like seeing the end grain particularly on birch plywood once it's sanded smooth and has a nice finish applied.

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG! Making Scaffold Board Dining Table & Bench Seats

How To Make A Ladder Style Mid Century Shelving Unit

Making A Custom Mixing Board Case

In this video I make a mixing board case for an Alice 828 mixing board for my friend Jason at The Crunch Recording Studio in Badersfield, Norfolk. In this one I use some sapele veneered particleboard and make the edge banding from solid sapele and I make a wrist rest using some foam and faux leather.
