I Made Some Large Gates For A Driveway

In this video I work on a commission to build some large garden gates for a driveway using pressure treated / tanalised timber from a local timber merchant, plus some untreated shiplap from a sawmill.  The gates span over 4m in width and are around 1.7m high.  I used half lap joinery at the corners of the frames, and floating tenons / dominos elsewhere.

Milwaukee Tool Review M18 Table Saw/Mitre Saw/Circular Saw/Jigsaw/Drill/Impact Driver/Sander #gifted

In this week's video I am reviewing some of my Milwaukee M18 tools.  I may do a follow up on the M12 tools and some of the other hand tools and accessories if people are interested - please let me know in the comments.  The tools I am focussing on are those used for joinery/carpentry, as that is what I do for a living.

Making A Cake Stand For Our Wedding

In this video I do some wood turning at the lathe and make a cake stand for our upcoming wedding reception using some beech and salvaged mahogany.

Restoring A Mid Century Modern Credenza / Sideboard

In this video I do some restoration work to a vintage teak mid century modern sideboard / credenza.  I believe it's by either Nathan or Beautility.  This piece of furniture has been in my family for decades.  I needed to refinish the veneer and solid wood areas.  The original ring handles in my opinion made it look quite dated, so I made some new hardwood handles for it which are interchangeable with the old ones to give it an updated look to better fit in a modern/contemporary home setting.

Making An MDF Gate... Yes, really!! #ad

PLEASE NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that there were a couple of mistakes made in this video due to the technical nature of the MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME panel. 1.

Making A Desk For My Fiancé #AD

In this video I'm working on a DIY custom desk project for my fiancé Ria, which will act as both a "work" desk and a dressing table all in one. Since recently becoming a permanent homeworker, Ria needed a nice desk to work from. She had quite a specific idea about what she wanted, and how it would look - and wanted to incorporate some solid wood to make it less "officey" and give it more of a homely "furniture" feel, so I used some solid beech for the frame and drawer fronts, and made the rest from Medite SMARTPLY's moisture resistant MDF. There were a few challenges along the way!

Gardening Tools - Repair & Restoration

In this video I do some garden tool restoration and repairs in order to get a set of functioning tools I can use to cut down some trees, bushes and shrubbery so that we can extend our lawn.    Featuring a pair of vintage Carl Kammerling shears, a spade / shovel, a fork plus some super hot winter gardening action!
