Very nicely done. Did you shape the metal all by yourself or bought the kit?
|Thread: Andrew's cradle|
I used the gel stain they sell in Rutlands. I used it on the other project (wardrobe) and it turned out very well. I was very pleased with the finish on the wardrobe. I am going the same route with this project, different colour though.
a correction. the height is about 37".
Mailee, to start with, I am going to stain it with Gel stain, I am not sure yet what to finish it with, I may use Arm r seal or osmo polyx oil.
Hi Derek, I started this end of December and I still have stuff to do in it. The height is about 32inch, width is 22 inch at top and 20" at base, length is about 32". Last night I fitted the pendulum mechanism and it swings smooth. Thanks for your comments.

You sound quiet passionate about woodworking. So my sincere advice will be not to go very cheap with your tools. You will soon acquire skills which will surprise you and find your cheap tools not living up to it. I started of with ameture tools and machines and now I have replaced most of them with professional ones, trust me I have wasted some money in that process. I regret for that mistake. If you have a basic worktable, you have a head start. Invests in some good quality chisels/mallets and planes. Avoid the temptation to go cheap on marking and measuring tools. check rutlands.co.uk, some offers still going on there. Start of with some kind of project say a simple table and soon your list of things you need to buy will grow out of it.
I dont know if i can recomend an american website here, any way i will do it. check www.finewoodworking.com, for a meagure subscription, there is a lot of video tutorials on fundamental and advanced woodworking. You will enjoy that.

|Thread: Planer Thicknesser advice please|
Thanks guys for all you valuable input. I have made an order. Will keep it posted when its all set up.
|Thread: Xcalibur Planer Thicknesser|
Has anyone used Xcalibur PT, their 10" model is the cheapest in the market @ £420. It pretty much looks like the others in that category.
Check it out at http://woodfordwm.co.uk/
Any advice will be much appreciated.
|Thread: Planer Thicknesser advice please|
Has anyone has charnwood PT?,
its about 750£ with free delivery from www.poolewood.co.uk. Its the machine Andy king has in his workshop setup videos.
I am unable to make up my mind between Axminster AW106PT2 planer thicknesser and Record power PT107.
Axminster has a cast iron fence and about 100 pounds cheaper. But I am inclined to think that Record power quality may be better. Any words of wisdom will be helpful. Many thanks in advance.
|Thread: Some advice needed please...|
Thanks all for your input. The electrician came around today and replaced the type B MCB for a type C MCB. It works fine now. Lesson learnt. Observing the process, I realized I could have done it myself if known . Now that I know how to do it, I may try myself if I buy any big powered machines.
The machine was there when he did the wiring. I tried to run the machine in his presence. He is going to order another trip switch and swap it.
I hired an electrician (british gas) to wire my 3hp , 16 Amp table saw.
On starting the saw, the MCB trips. I found out that its type B 20Amp MCB that has been installed and with a surge in the current when the motor kicks in, it trips.
Now the question is, what should I go for. Type C 20 Amp MCB or Type D.
Some of the members seem to have heavy machines, it will be nice to hear from them as to what I should be going for.
It will be nice if I can get some answers before Thursday, as the electrician is coming again to sort this out.
