Workshop update - 1 year after the build

It's been a year since I built my workshop, so this is a quick update to answer some questions I've been asked about it, and to show you some of the improvements I've made in the past year.

Building A Shed Using Pallet Wood (part 3 of 3)

My friend Alex needed somewhere to store his bike, so we made a shed out of pallet wood for his garden.  In this episode, we add some door trims, paint the roof with bitumen paint, add the roof felt, trim the roof and paint the shed. Alex adds some pimping electrics and moves his stuff in which concludes the build.

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!
