Building A Bed With Reclaimed Wood

I am using salvaged hard wood reclaimed from the demolition of a conservatory to build a super king sized mid century modern style bed frame. The wood is a mixture of meranti and mahogany and there are lots of nails, screws and holes in the wood that I need to deal with!

VLOG 16: How I Was Scammed / Channel Changes

In this vlog I talk about how I got scammed recently (it's a bit of a long story with many twists and turns along the way), a channel update as I am making some changes to the content I put out, news about the Workshop Banter podcast and a JellySmack collaboration and recommended viewing featuring some brilliant YouTube channels.

In this video I put two hard wax oil wood finishes to the test - Osmo Polyx-Oil Vs Oli Natura Hard Wax Oil from Germany - which happens to be the cheapest hard wax oil available on Amazon.  I test out their appearance, ease of application, drying and cure time, stain resistance and value for money.
