The busier that I get, the more I want to do. Why does it work that way? I never understood the concept of "boredom." Even at a young age. With an entire world of things to do for work, leisure and fun, I don't know how anyone could feel that they were bored. I suppose it is the way we approach things and life in general. I am always amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. If I had one thing that I could change in this world, it would be to slow things down a ...

View on YouTube Well, here is the next part in my series of making a NASA toolbox! In this episode, I weather the box to make it look more used! Hope you enjoy!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXDdAhpPCok I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHvg5hbk0r4 Hi Folks! Over the weekend, my dad and I built this new workbench that I can use for woodworking! The whole thing is made of 2×4s, with an 18mm plywood top. Enjoy the video!
Recently, I built a rather large storage unit for my workshop. Once it was built I noticed that there was a big face that could be used as a back drop for my You-Tube videos. I had several ideas but a chalkboard won the day. Now it can be used to draw diagrams, write comments or anything that is interesting. Here is the link to my You-Tube video, (https://youtu.be/RS3n_1miBtg) The material list: One – sheet of plywood (cut to size) One – sheet of OSB (cut to size an...
Before I get underway, the first tip has to be…It doesn’t matter how careful you are, accidents still happen I started cutting for my sanding blocks, don’t ask what happened, I don’t know, I just know I was aware I was about to have a kickback on the table saw, I was using push blocks, tried to get out of the way, and in doing so, lost one and a bit finger tips!! The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...
My woodwork seems to have come to a grinding halt, unfortunately my car needs major work on it, which has bit deeply into my finances, so woodwork is confined to using what wood I have in stock for the time being, not ideal, but I have a string of medical appointments coming up, so maybe it has come at the right time…if there is such a thing! A couple of days ago, I decided that it was time to make a medicine cabinet for the house, I had some plywood sitting about waiting for a proje...
The bookcase is finished and so are the videos! I’m happy to say that the bookcase suits the room well and it even fits the gap it’s supposed to go in (I admit to being somewhat nervous when I turned up to deliver it). View on YouTube If anyone wants an easy link, I’ve set up a playlist with all 4 parts here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbd5qQJhXiljBIkSsvn0O6T012UXGyOdS
So another week and yet more progress. This bookcase has definitely gone together better than the 1st one. I learnt from my mistakes and took extra care to ensure that the shelves were all the same length and were definitely square when glued in place. This means that the sides are nice and straight, whereas on the first bookcase one side had a significant bow in it, that needed hiding with the face frame and careful placement in the room it went into. Anyway, here is the film of the 3rd p...
