PostPosted: Fri Feb 16, 2018 1:14 am

 Post subject: Loft conversion
PostPosted: Thu Dec 28, 2017 10:59 pm 
A couple of you may know i'm in the midst of a loft conversion, for myself. 2 beroom, with a small ensuite.

Pretty decent amount of room in there, but plenty of awkward bits to contend with.
Doing in my 'spare' time, along side my day job.
Builder/chippy helping with certain aspects like fitting the velux windows and giving me a pont in the right direction now and then...

Few pics so far... Trusses everywhere... ...

 Post subject: Oak Fire Surround
PostPosted: Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:19 am 
When we couldn't find an Arts and Craft Style fire surround for our house renovation, I took it as a perfect excuse to make something that wasn't painted MDF for a change...

It's pretty much all veneered MDF, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Its a bluetooth speaker, a phone charging dock and bedside lamp.

Collect the items- I had an old bluetooth satelite speaker that was damaged around the outer casing, which ...

 Post subject: Krenov Style sawhorse video
PostPosted: Wed Nov 08, 2017 3:21 pm 
After having finished my workshop roof with the help of the fine people on this forum, I decided to get a few projects underway. First off were a pair of Krenov style sawhorses, and I completed a video of the build. It's more for those of you with a woodworking hobby, and I hope it's a little entertaining too.

Any feedback is much appreciated!

Ripping out some old skirting today and noticed this. Never seen it before. Great craftsmanship. Wouldn't like to guess how long it took them! Have cut a set and put in the van I thought it was that cool

PostPosted: Sun Jul 16, 2017 12:18 pm 
A few months back I made some fox wedges from some old fork lift truck forks fox-wedges-made-from-old-forklift-truck-forks-t87632.html

I saved the remainder of the forks to make other items in future. One of the jobs I do at work requires an open ended 19mm spanner and the nut needs to be really tight but finding a 19mm open ended flogging/slogging spanner proved impossible and so I made one ...
