Snooker Cue Legged Mid Century Style Coffee Table

I mentioned in my last vlog video that I had an unusual find recently, 16 snooker cues, which I found leaning against a wall behind a bin.  
People who've been watching my channel for a while will know that I predominantly like to use salvaged materials in my projects, so I gave some thought to what I could use these for and the first idea I had was using them to make some tapered legs for a coffee table.

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 Large Dog Bed

In this video I'm going to be making a large dog bed as a commission for a client.  

It's going to be based on a design I've made previously on my channel, but with a number of improvements.

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.
