Do any of you guys and lady's know of a company where I can purchase brass corners and handles etc As I've just been given a repro campaign chest that's seen better days but has lost all its brass every time I type in brass fittings into my search engine all I get is plumbers fittings I don't think they would look right some how so If some one could point me in the right direction I'd be much appreciated.

Thread: Cherry waney edge table

I think Nathans reply is sound. MDF veneered board down the middle would make the pebble section more stable than the solid wooden parts That said if the veneers are not equal on the board it could still move slightly I'm afraid your outer pieces will move but it can be lessened if you store your boards in the room where they will end up once the table is made so they can acclimatise therefore lessening any further movement. Good luck post some pics when finished would love to see it. Ged Meager

Dennis if you can afford it sometime go and do a days course with mark he's a great guy You'll really enjoy it and learn loads. I was at Yandles show today and watching Mark demonstrate and answer questions all day long Yew is my fav. wood but can be a bugger at times. Happy turnings yours Ged

Thread: spalted beech hollow form.

I did a one day course with Mark last year, In my humble opinion he is the absolute master of the hollow form he's a smashing guy and a great teacher Nothing is to much trouble he know his subject inside out and like all people who are really good at what they do. he makes it all look so easy and knows how to put it over. I would recommend his one day course to anybody who wants to learn this popular technique.Ged Meager

Has anybody else noticed the picture on bottom left page 15, of this months Good wood Magazine looks like Andy King using the saw. As a medic back in the 80's&90's one day in casualty in comes a young man asking if somebody could help him he then opened one of his hands to reveal 4 fingers laying neatly in the palm of said hand. He was a time served carpenter and joiner who had been trimming the bottom of a door one hand infront of saw!!!!! one hand on the saw Hit an unseen nail the saw jumped in the click of your fingers 4 fingers gone! we did manage to replace them but they never worked properly again. Hand held saws have two handles for a very good reason USE THEM!!!!!!!!! and don't cut towards a free hand under any circumstances. I did write to the editor of the mag and received very gracious reply and apology for publishing the picture which I thought very nice and hope my little true tale will stop some other person loosing their digits.
