Looks very good Dennis yes

Thread: Veneer Rippling
14/03/2017 07:41:43


Hi Steve,

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
13/03/2017 21:19:44

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

Lidded pot

Thread: Which £200 extractor?
12/03/2017 21:27:29

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
05/09/2016 07:42:23

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.

Circle cutting jig

Hi Peter,

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.

Hope you all had a great Christmas & best wishes for the new year.

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.

Congratulations Derek,



Thread: Bandsaw Guides, Discs V Rollers
07/12/2013 17:37:19

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?

Hi Doug,

I have made enquiries and waiting for a response, I will update to confirm.

The announcement I saw was from Peter Sefton who received the news from Ron’s daughter; this is indeed very sad news.



Thanks Steven,

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.
