Hitachi NR1890 18v Brushless Cordless Framing Nailer - First Impressions / Review

Hitachi NR1890 Framing Nailer
In this video I'm going to talk about the Hiatchi NR1890 Brushless 18v Framing Nailer, I'll talk about my first impressions, the features, and I'll also put it through some tests in this video.
I've only used the nailer on one project so far, and that was the sheet materials storage rack I made for my lock up storage space. 

Storage Rack For Sheet Materials (Plywood, OSB, MDF, Chipboard, Melamine etc)

In this video I'm going to build a sheet materials storage rack to hold all my plywood, OSB, melamine, chipboard and MDF.
I've already done a 3D drawing using SketchUp to design what I want to make.  I designed the rack to be as compact as possible but also have the ability to hold a full 8ft by 4ft sheet.  It's not often I use full sheets, because most of my work is with reclaimed materials but I still want the ability to be able to store them.

Beech Waney Live Edge Slab Coffee Table - Table Top (part 1 of 2)

Recently I got a few waney edge slabs of what I think is beech.  Here's one of the lengths, which I'd already cut in half so that I could fit in my van.  This piece had been stored in a disused warehouse for over 10 years so I expected it to be dry and when I checked with my moisture metre, it was showing at only 6% moisture content.  So I knew that after all this time the wood should be stable enough and ready to use.  It looked like it'd be a really beautiful piece of wood once cleaned up and as it was also a really good size it seemed like it would be a huge shame to cut it up in to pi

Restoring Two Old Spokeshaves

I donned a pair of gloves for this as it was about to get messy.
I'd start the cleaning process with some 80 grit abrasive paper and some 220 grit wet and dry paper stuck to a melamine board with some sticky back tape.
I started cleaning up the top of the cap iron, and eventually revealed that it was made by Record, which was a pleasant surprise. 
So here I'm just removing the rust, I'm not trying to make it look new like it just came out of the factory, I actually like my tools to look like they've had some use.

Making Cat Or Dog Bunk Beds

Recently I found some pine bed slats and a broken double bed frame, and in this video I'm going to be making some bunk beds for cats or smallish dogs.  
I previously designed and made some single versions of these beds which was an earlier video on my channel.
The slats had some straps attached with staples so the first job was to get those off
And I removed all the metal fittings.
