Simple Floating Corner Shelf - No Specialist Hardware Or Fixings

In this video I make a couple of simple and modern DIY corner floating shelves for our new living room.  I used some offcuts of MDF and a piece of pine to make the shelf, and the whole project took a couple of hours to do - nice and quick.  The floating shelf requires no specialist hardware or fixings.

Making A Jewellery Box - With Compound Mitre Angle Cuts

In this video I make some jewellery boxes using wood from an old reclaimed fireplace surround.  I think the wood might be meranti but I'm not sure.  This project was my first time cutting compound mitre cuts at the mitre saw - something that I've wanted to try for a while and it seemed like the perfect simple woodworking project to try it out on.

How To Remove Stains, Re-finish & Oil Wooden Kitchen Counter Worktops

In this video I will be showing how to do scraping, sanding, and re-finishing on some wooden kitchen worktops / work surfaces / counter tops at a local AirBnB. I need to remove the water stains, heat marks, wear and mould and strip down to the bare wood, and then restore the natural beauty of the wood - which I do by oiling using a hard wax oil finish. This restoration took 6 hours in total, which excludes thie time it took for the finish to dry.

Restoring A Vintage Oak Cutlery Box

In this video I restore a vintage viners oak cutlery box. There were a few heat marks and water stains to remove from the lid using oxalic acid, I then re-finish with walnut stain to restore the colour and then use my handmade oil wax. The brass hardware needed cleaning up, and I also fit new felt to tidy up the inside. There was also a small repair to the bottom trim for which I use epoxy.
