Problem Solved: Designing A New Kitchen Bin

In this video I am making a pet-proof kitchen bin cabinet, as in, one that ACTUALLY WORKS! I couldn't quite believe that there doesn't seem to be any purchasable solution to stop pets getting in the bin, but this simple woodworking project solved all our problems with Mickie the ever hungry cat!

DIY Drainage - French Drains On A Budget!

We had big problems with mould and mildew forming on the inside of our garage / store room, as damp was tracking through from the outside to the inside due to there either being no damp proof course in the walls (which is what I suspect is the case) or if there is a DPC, it was being compromised by a concrete driveway and path at DPC level on the outside. So join me for a video full of drainage solutions on a very tight budget!

Making A Lot Of Mistakes... And A Linen Basket!

A tapered linen basket with compound angles is this week's project, and it really tested me!

But it turned out nice in the end!

Insulated Plasterboard Makes It Easy!

In this video I am installing insulated plasterboard to some single skin exterior walls that had no cavity and therefore no insulation. Our main aim is to keep the inside faces of the walls warm to prevent condensation and mould or mildew forming.
