Sourcing wood Farts Paris | #15 |

The workshop is getting colder still, sourcing wood, projects on the bench, farts and relocation to Paris? Workshop It's getting even colder and I still haven't worked out how to heat the workshop. I have an old electric heater, but as the workshop is mostly made of wood I am very conscious of fire risk. Planer Thicknesser I took the plunge and bought a used Elecktra Beckum HC260 M planer / thicknesser or ebay. It's currently on a pallet truck on its way to me somewhere. But if you have...

The workshop is getting cold, so how best to heat it? Transform the behaviour of your kids with home points. Dig ditches for fun! Workshop It's starting to get cold and I am having to think about workshop heating. I have the an electric oil fired heater but it isn't enough. Also I am getting more concerned about the cold causing condensation on the tools, and rust, when I open the doors in the mornings. If you have any thoughts on how to combat this I would love to hear it. The lighting in...

Lesson fro this week is buy wood rough sawn not PAR (Planned All Round) or maybe you know it as just nice a smooth and square stuff. The difference is price is incredible, I had this fact really highlighted...

Wey hey I am back! After a rather extended break The Wood Daddy Podcast is here a again. After a long break I have come back to the podcast.

The second is the table saw, replacing the top and more importantly replace the blade. A new 80 tooth blade has made a lot of difference to cutting cleanly. Finally making a...
