Great job Marc !  For your next project what about a nice big display case to show off your handywork. Dusting less often and nothing hidden away. Happyness all round???

Hi Ben,
Lovely dovetailing!  As for the grain of the joys of working with REAL wood.

Hi Thomas,

I would be inclined to agree with Baz, also make sure that it isn't going to block the neighbours view or sunlight. Is he objecting to it or just trying to be helpful?
A call to the council planning office on Monday morning would put your and his mind at ease. Good luck anyway.

Thanks Denis,
Made one years ago when i used to nhelp out a semi- retired cabinet maker. 7 hooks per dresser in oak is hard on fingers. one day a visiting client saw it and wanted one for the same purpose you made it for.
Thanks, Joe.

Is it (a) for  screwing in hooks eg mug s or cups? or (b) fitting the screw top on a hot water bottle?

Hi Smithy,

I would agree with Richard (Oddjob) regarding the helpfullness of members and Denis on spelling. I also agree with  Olly (OJP). Looked the product last night and would risk the following (unquallified) oppinions. For cladding i wouldn't bother sanding (too much trouble). You could put on  2 or even 3 coats (no sealer) on their own . on planed wood i would think 1 coat followed by their (the makers) or any good yaught varnish (exterior grade varnish).

Hope this helps.

Regards Joe.

Hi Ben,
I totally agree with Richard ,Marc and Ralph.
I am impressed by the smooth curves.
The dovetails bring it all together (pardon the pun) rather than standing out, as they appeared to do in the original drawings.
Beautiful wood. DARK STAIN OR PAINT A NO NO!
Having said that, the customer is ALWAYS RIGHT...

I agree with Derek, a fine piece of work!

Nice wheel, but when fitted the sensation of speed will be lost.
A so;lid wheel grooved like an old record (remember them) with thicker lines going out from the hub corresponding with where spokes would have been, would have given the impression of the speed that such a fine machine would be capable of.
Thread: Ralph's halved his bowl!

Well done Ralph!
I was tempted to say, a classic case of thinking outside the box.. But would probably cut up the box and turn it into something spectacular.
Thread: Derek's table lamp....nice!

Thanks for the clarification Ben

Hi Thomas,
Can't comment as i never used them. Never  saw them on a site or workshop. pros stick to the pig name brands as they need 110v (industry) and not 240v (domestic e.g me and you.  They are (as far as i know) the same company. company's change colours regularly,Black and Decker an example. Read the manual and carefully check the guarantee (what? & how long). Would say they are still D I Y.

No disagreement from me either Marc,
But as Olly said, didn't we sign up for just that. I had thought i was the odd man out  as originally didn't tick the box but latter changed my mind.
