Workshop update - 1 year after the build

It's been a year since I built my workshop, so this is a quick update to answer some questions I've been asked about it, and to show you some of the improvements I've made in the past year.

Making A Workshop Space-Saving Stand for the Electra Beckum HC260 planer/thicknesser

In this video, I design and build a space-saving stand for my planer/thicknesser the Electra Beckum HC260.  The idea was to create some additional worktop space in my small workshop for my drill press and bench grinder with space for the planer underneath.  Made entirely from salvaged materials. Turned out OK!

Making a simple framing spline jig

Here is a simple framing spline jig I made for my tablesaw, the DeWalt DW745

Making A Zero Clearance Insert for DeWalt DW745 tablesaw

Here I make a zero clearance insert for my DeWalt DW745 from a piece of pallet wood that I think is Poplar.

Making Push Blocks

Recently I made a couple of push blocks for using with my jointer, as I only had one and it was in bad condition.  They didn't turn out perfect, but they do the job

Building A Quick & Easy Workbench

Here's a workbench I built using an old kitchen cabinet I had spare from my kitchen refurb and some salvaged wood.  

Making A Mallet Out Of A Pallet

Here's a mallet I made using some pallet wood

Making A Mitre Station (part 2 of 2)

Here's a mitre station I built for my Axminster sliding mitre saw in my workshop.

Part 2 covers finishing off the unit that the saw sits on, making the fence and measurement guide, and making a drawer.
