How To Make A Beeswax & Oil Furniture Polish For Wood Finishing

In this video I’ll be demonstrating how I my own oil wax wood finishing product.
 
But first, I thought I'd explain why, as there were a few reasons
 
Firstly I’ve recently run out of Briwax which is a product that I use quite often as a finish, at least for items I make that don’t need a lot of protection from moisture.
 

Making Custom Desks (part 3 of 3) - Worktop, finishing, castors & keyboard shelf

Welcome to part 3 of the desk builds.  In the last video I made the drawer and drawer housing for the desk.
And in this one I'll be working on the desk top, the castors, adding a keyboard shelf and getting some glass for the desktop to protect the wood.
First I used my trim router to add a roundover to the top edges of the worktop
I then brought the worktop in to the workshop so that I could sand everything smooth and remove any burn marks left by the router.
I used my block plane just to ease over the bottom edges of the worktop

Making Custom Desks (part 2 of 3) - drawers and drawer housing

Welcome to part 2 of the desk build. The next job was to make the drawer and the drawer housing, and before cutting anything I first did a quick sketch just to get my head around the dimensions of everything.
This is the front elevation I'm drawing here, and the drawer needed to be 270mm in width.
The drawer runners I'd use are these bottom mount type, I've used these before for all my workshop drawers, they work well and are inexpensive.
Here's how they go together.

Making Custom Desks (part 1 of 3)

Peter Millard Clamping Square video: https://youtu.be/kf-jOFrWTXo
In this video I'm going to start working on a commission - this one came about thanks to my uncle who put my name forward to someone who wanted two custom desks built, one for each of his sons.
I got in touch and we discussed his requirements so I could start designing the desks - he wanted the desks 
to have some shelves and a single drawer for storage
something dismantleable so that it can be easily transported
