Thread: Insurance for workshops
23/10/2009 23:06:29
I'm with Nationwide
When i renewed two years ago i told them about my work shop and asked if there was any extra to pay, there reply was that providing i wasn't charging a fee for my work then there was no charge .
I'm still concerned that should i need to claim there would be a reason not to pay or pay part of it only

Hi ged
My suggestion would be to put the dados on the other side and fit as normal, and tell your client if he needs an extension to the book case the rebates are in place ready to go.
If that fails yes i do have a shot gun you can use, hope this helps

Thanks Andy.
 With the help of everyone i sure i know what to look for as tomorrow I'm off to the wood yard to buy the timber, i rang them today and they told me they had scandinavian pine.
When its finished I'll try to get some photos on the site.
Thanks again everyone.

Thanks for your advice guys.
I've learned a lot in a few words.
I'll chose my timber this week and get it delivered asap.
Cedric very nice piece, the feet did you buy them or turn them yourself also the finish, great shine wax,varnish?
I'm going to make the boards myself and see how i go i'll buy the planks in at 150mm wide so i may have to cut them down turn one round and glue together. The design is based on shaker so the panels will have to be planed down to approx 14mm thick do you think i might have a twisting problem
Thanks again

Thread: Furniture Grade Pine

Thanks for coming back to me.
I was under the impression that redwoods come in different hardness some more suited for furniture than others.
I use a local wood merchant that sells softwood only for diy jobs and trial peaces for the dovetail gig etc.
What concerns me is if i ask for redwood they may sell me the best they have, but with my inexperience i wont know weather it is suited for furniture or not.
Hope you can help

A relative has asked me to make a computer desk out of pine, the only job i have ever made from pine was a few years ago from pre manufactured boards from a local diy store it was a bit of a disaster as there were holes from knots missing and tear out from planing since then i have only used hard woods mainly oak.. So could someone tell me the type of pine to ask for ie Douglas fir, Red wood etc, i have heard of un sorted timber whatever that means.
Im sure somebody can help thanks.

Hi Mike
