I Made A TETRIS Jigsaw Puzzle Toy

In this video I make a wooden Tetris style jigsaw puzzle toy.  This makes for a great child's toy, or even adults toy (as it's not that easy!)

Making A Built In Shoe & Coat Storage Cabinet

In this video I built and installed a fitted floor to ceiling built in cabinet / cupboard for shoe and coat storage, for a friend who wanted to de-clutter is entrance hall.

This Bi-Fold Door Had 3 Problems...

I Made A Garden Coffee Table Using CLS 3x2s

In this video I make a really simple outdoor coffee table to accompany the outdoor sofas made in a recent video using some offcuts of pressure treated 3x2 CLS timber

The Best Wood Finish, Every Time - Wood Finish Finder Tool

Choosing the right wood finish isn't always easy, especially if you're new to woodworking - there are so many options - oils, waxes, hard wax oils, varnishes, lacquers, shellac, dyes, paints, stains and polyurethanes. 
I've been working hard on a project over the past couple of months creating an online tool designed to help you choose the best possible wood finish for your particular project, whatever that might be.  And in this video I show you how it works, and talk you through some examples. 

I Made A Garden Table & Benches

In this video I make a DIY outdoor dining table and benches for our garden using some salvaged galvanised metal fence pipes and kee klamp fittings and some smooth faced pressure treated decking boards for the tops.  I also talk about where is best to buy the components used in this project, and how much you can expect to pay for the materials.

We Demolished A Conservatory - Demolition Day!

In this video we're demolishing a lean to conservatory / sun room on the back of our 1930s bungalow.  We think it was built in the 90's, however it was really poorly built which was one of the many reasons that it needed to come down!

PLEASE NOTE: the methods we use in this video may not be the best or the safest - we are not professional demolition people, in fact, I've personally never demolished a building before (apart from a shed, not sure if that counts). This is NOT a "how to" video.
