Looks very good Dennis
|Thread: Veneer Rippling|
I don't do a lot of veneering mainly inlays but I was fortunate to see David Savage a couple of years back at the European Woodworking show when he was demonstrating veneering techniques.
On badly shaped or wrinkled veneers he recommended using an ordinary household iron to flatten it prior to use, it may be worth trying out on a wetted off cut of veneer ironing through a dampened cloth.
Best of luck,

|Thread: Doug's hollow form|
Thanks Derek. It's more a little box than a hollow form with the finial made from Blackwood.
This is a montage type picture I posted on Instagram which better shows the box & lid
|Thread: Which £200 extractor?|
Both extractors you mention Julian are more suited to shavings collection, if you are going to use one on your table saw you definitely want the fine filter as with the fabric bag filter all you will do is spread the fine dust further round your workshop as they only filter down to about 5 microns.
I've had an Axminster extractor with fine filter for around 12 years & have been very happy with it
|Thread: Finishing Table Saw advice|
You only put a thin coat which is buffed up so any transfer would be negligible, also as the saw isn't giving a finished surface any contamination if you applied too much would be removed from the timber further along its preparation.
If you want wood to slide easily over the table it is worth giving the top a coat of wax polish something like Chestnut's wood wax 22, I use this on surfaces I want to keep friction low, it's easy to apply, can be reapplied as & when necessary, I find it works very well.

Lovely Derek, a really nice piece.
|Thread: Hall Console Table|
That looks lovely Brian.
I really like the design & finish, thanks for sharing.
|Thread: oak bowl|
Lovely bowl Dennis with some very striking grain.
|Thread: cutting an accurate curve in MFC|
You could make a simple jig out of ply that fixes to the base of your router & allows you to cut arcs & circles.
The longer the jig the bigger the arc, this is mine for cutting circles, nothing complicated just made from a piece of Perspex.
|Thread: Happy New Year|
Hope you all had a great Christmas & best wishes for the new year.
|Thread: East Midlands Woodworking Show|
I've been looking forward to this since first hearing about in the autumn as for a change it is only a few miles away from me.
|Thread: We wish you all a Merry Christmas|
Seasons greetings to one & all with best wishes for a happy & prosperous new year.
|Thread: Derek Lane's Woodewoker article|
|Thread: Bandsaw Guides, Discs V Rollers|
I used to have a Record bandsaw with the disc type guides, they were fine on the sides of the blade but a groove was worn in the rear thrust guide from fairly early days of owning the saw.
When I upgraded I went for a machine with roller bearings & have been much happier with them.
|Thread: a faver for a faver|
Lovely bowl & some smashing looking timber Dennis.
You`ve done well to keep all the bark on, was the blank still a little green?
|Thread: Ron Fox|
Thanks to both of you.
|Thread: cherry jewelry box|
Lovely work Wolfie, I`m sure your niece will be thrilled.
|Thread: Ron Fox|
I first saw about his death in a forum post elsewhere, I have since seen Peter`s announcement so can only presume that it is sadly true.
|Thread: Dovetail Stool|
Lovely stool David, some great woodwork there.
