In this video I get started with spraying paint (although in future I'll mostly be using my new set up for spraying varnishes / clear coats).

Gardening Tools - Repair & Restoration

In this video I do some garden tool restoration and repairs in order to get a set of functioning tools I can use to cut down some trees, bushes and shrubbery so that we can extend our lawn.    Featuring a pair of vintage Carl Kammerling shears, a spade / shovel, a fork plus some super hot winter gardening action!

Which Air Compressor? Comparing ABAC, Bambi, Clarke, Hyundai, Orazio, Scheppach, SIP and Swan

In this video I choose a new air compressor by comparing specs and reviews in order to determine which is best for my needs.  My critera was as follows: small in size, reliable and good quality, quiet running motor, good airflow (as high CFM as possible) and with a budget of around £250.

Perfect, Easy Finger Joints - Table Saw Jig (no dado)

Bathroom Built In Cabinet (Part 3 of 3)

Birch Plywood Bathroom Shelving (Part 2 of 3)

In this video I make a birch plywood shelving unit to sit behind the mirror doors of our bathroom cabinet.  I cut housing grooves (dados) and rebates (rabbets) for the joinery using the table saw.

Built In Bathroom Cabinet (Part 1 of 3)

In this video I start on a new project to build a built in, floor to ceiling bathroom cabinet as part of our bathroom renovation in our 1930s bungalow.  There was an old cabinet here with mirror doors and I wanted to give the cabinet more depth for additional storage space and also improve it aesthetically, as it was a real eye sore!  I use construction timber and birch plywood for the face frame.

Making A Balance Board

In this video I make a balance board.. Also known as a wobbel board / wobble board I think?  Using thin plywood and bent lamination.  This is a great toddler / small child gift idea - I wasn't sure I really understood the idea until I saw my neice playing with it and then it all made sense! A great way for little ones to be able to learn balance and coordination skills, and it can be used either way up!  A great toy - kids love it.

A Cheaper Mirka DEROS Random Orbital Sander? Let's Compare!

In this video I'm comparing the Mirka DEROS random orbital sander (which I have owned since February 2018) with a cheaper alternative Hyvst 350w sander from China. This random orbital sander appears to be the same machine as those available under different brand names: Sealey DAS150PS,  Menzer ETS 150, Pela ROS090, Delrem and possibly some others - although please note: I don't know for sure if they are actually all the same machine with the same components.
