Thread: Log Box Finish
18/08/2009 20:26:25
I.m making an oak log box to go in a country (semi)ingle  open fireplace and am not sure what finish to use because of the heat/sparks etc. Any suggestions gratefully received.
Thread: Martin's shop (GW211)

I knew I should have put my glasses on to read the small print.

Ienjoyed the description and photo's of Martin Aplin's shed in the current GW. Nice to know that it's a flat-pack shed, and see a layout diagram; but I can't find a mention os size anywhere. It looks to be about 8 foot across, but how long is it?
I ask because I use a single garage  that seems to be overcrowded, Perhaps my layout is wrong and this sort of article helps immensly.
Thread: New Site Platform Now Live

Seem to be getting a lot of chats duplicated. I don't mean just the odd post, but whole batches. Makes the topic look longer and means I have to wade through a load of repeats in case I miss something new.
Thread: Hobbies Design Sheets

Phil
Many thanks for the link, I found two of the patterns I needed on it. I've been making a list of what I have and so far have about 12 A4 pages. Most are far too out of date now but a lot of the toys and models can be adapted. I'll difinitely not be bored in retiremant.
 
Again, thanks, you were a great help.

Phil,
I can only give you what I have mentioned above. Apart from the coal cabinet, which appears to look like a small cupboard, only the front 'door' drops forwards letting you scopp coal out, the others are small tables of varying simple ornateness.  They just seem ideal for me to get experience in my small garage workshop.
 
If you'd prefer, we can discuss details direct.

PS. I did recently spot a link to someone who had a lot of these  (Hobbies) designs online, but I can't find it now I want it. Sod's Law!

The items I am particularly interested in are:-
1)April 18th, 1931  sheet number 1852 - Mahogany Bedside Table
2)Oct.24th 1931 sheet number 1879 - coal cabinet
3) Nov 7th 1931 sheet number 1881 - Bachelor's Dressing Table.
 
I allready have sheets for 13 assorted small tables, some of which which I intend to make suitably adapted for todays styles, and would like these to fill in some gaps.

I am trying to obtain copies of three Hobbies design sheets for items of furniture, originally published way back in 1931. The net auction sites have failed, book search sites have failed, and Hobbies archives are in storage and innaccessible.
Does anyone still have these designs in their lofts?
 
I'm prepared to pay costs for copying and postage.
 
many thanks

Thread: cutting list calculations

Thanks you all for the hints, over the next coupe of days I'll get onto them all and see what's what.

Perhaps someone here can help? Is there some computer programme that will calculate the total amount of timber in various thicknesses required by a cutting list? I'm getting fed up of working it all out on paper.

Thanks
