How To Choose A Wood Finish, And How To Apply

In this video I'll talk about the thought process I use to decide how I choose a wood finish for my projects, and I'll show you how I apply them.  
 
STAINS & DYES:

Refinishing An Ercol Giraffe Room Divider

In this video I'm going to be restoring the finish on a 1956 Ercol Giraffe room divider for a client.
I've never worked on a piece of furniture this old or this valuable before.
And the first mission was collecting it in my small van, I had to get it in by laying it down on it's side, and because it's talled than my van is long, I needed to the door of my van shut with some rope and needless to say I drove home very carefully. 

Coffee Table With Metal Legs

Recently I salvaged some metal coffee table legs - these were being thrown away as part of an office clearance at my place of work, and originally they had melamine tops which were really badly worn and damaged after years of use, and I knew I could make use of the metal legs, so I asked for the metal legs to be put aside for me.  I think I took about 6 or 7 pairs of these in total.  
And in this video I'm going to make a solid wood table top for one of the pairs of legs and I'm also going to grind off the paint from the metal legs which you'll see later in the project.

Air Filter For The Small Workshop - Review and Testing The Thor Filtration TF470 (AKA MicroClene MC420)

In this video I review and test the Thor Filtration TF470 Air Filter, also/previously known as the MicroClene MC420.
I finally found an air filter designed for the small workshop.

Poolewood TF470: https://bit.ly/2nhNJsR current price: £189.59 or £213.59 with remote
Yandles MC420: https://bit.ly/2MbZZcy current price: £175.99 (not sure if remote is included)

Repairing & Restoring Dining Chairs

Recently I made a couple of desks as a commission for a client, and when I was delivering those to his home, he mentioned he had some solid beech dining chairs that were in need of repair.  There were 6 in total but initially I just took 4 of them away, and in this video I'm going to be showing how I repaired and re-finished them.
The main problem with these chairs, as you can see is that joints are loose, so the chairs had quite a bit of movement in them.
