I Take Wood From People's Bins

I went out for a JUNK HUNT around the city of Norwich and found loads of materials and then used them to make a woodworking project! I like using waste materials in my project so searching the alleyways, communal bin areas and skip diving or dumpster diving is a great way to find things!

Why I'll NEVER Hire Another Tradesperson - Channel Drainage

I needed to install some channel drains in our front garden which I will be running to a new soakaway to hopefully resolve the issues we have with pooling water during heavy rainfall. And while I'm at it, I'm also going to be laying some fresh concrete on our driveway to replace the failing and crumbling concrete that was laid by a professional a few years ago with the help of some family members.

Do Wood Treatments Really Work? UNEXPECTED RESULTS

3 years ago I set up an experiment to find out if wood treatments actually work to protect timber from rot, decay and wood boring insects. I wanted to test pressure treated / tanalised wood and also self treated wood with a wood preserver product. The results from these tests really surprised me!

My £10 per metre FRUGAL FENCE using rebar

I needed a cheap fence solution around our garden to prevent toddlers getting too close to the edge of a wall. This fence was put together using 12mm rebar and roof battens, and I'll show you how I made them and also cover the total cost breakdown in the video.
