Making A Workshop Space-Saving Stand for the Electra Beckum HC260 planer/thicknesser

In this video, I design and build a space-saving stand for my planer/thicknesser the Electra Beckum HC260.  The idea was to create some additional worktop space in my small workshop for my drill press and bench grinder with space for the planer underneath.  Made entirely from salvaged materials. Turned out OK!

Making Hardwood Drinks Coasters

A friend of mine donated me some lengths of hardwood - oak, mahogany and teak (I think).  I used them to create these drinks coasters to give as Christmas gifts.  I got about 36 coasters in total out of the laminated block of wood - 8 sets of 4 coasters.  I had a few issues - the glue up was tricky and it took a while to find a finish I liked, but they looked good in the end!
