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.

My Nightmare Project! Mid Century Modern Corner Cabinet

In this video I make officially my worst ever project!  A mid century modern style corner cabinet to hold some hifi equipment for our dining room.  I believe the wood is Iroko, which is also known as "poor man's Teak"!  The handles and hinges are solid brass. The legs are a mystery hardwood (probably meranti).

4x Problems With My Handmade Shed: One Year Update

In this video I talk about four problems with my handmade shed - it is now one year after I built it - in the hope that you can learn from my mistakes! 

How To Make Outdoor Garden Sofas - Easy & Cheap!

In this video I show how to make some inexpensive, quick and easy outdoor garden sofas with cushions using pressure treated / tanalised 3x2s (63x38mm timber) and 6x1s (150x22mm).  Perfect for every patio, solidly made and should last years and years
