  1. Don;t know if I can suggest anything but good luck with it. I've posted this before but it makes me chuckle when I see it.
  2. Have you had a look at skateboard veneers? https://www.roarockit.com/veneer-1/
  3. I haven't seen this guy before. This is kind of mind boggling. A very intriguing piece of equipment. Kind of a cross between a CNC router, panto router and more. I find it amusing he's moving between this fairly complicated bit of equipment and some tiny hobby tools. After a bit more research: https://machineatlas.com/guides/new-hand-operated-cnc-machine-an-in-depth-look/
  4. A blender and a straw Coop. Problem solved.
  5. I'm sorry to hear that. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
  6. Maybe? Not quite the typical Australian accent. One reason I enjoy watching him is that he uses much of the same timber as I do - Victorian Ash. Which is the timber I used for my desk and posted earlier in the thread for the OSMO example.
  7. Yep, those Australian accents are hard to follow. He’s like the Melbourne woodwhisperer. Just not quite as YouTube famous. He’s got a few good videos to watch.
  8. The lighting is a bit different but this just applied and a couple of years later. I like the satin finish.
  9. I've sent him an email. I don't think its much different in terms of building. It should work to put a tenon in for alignment alongside the corner brace. Throw in a few threaded inserts and it's good to go.
  10. Yeah, it's the one with splayed legs. It's 2.2m x 1m wide (7" x 3" approx). I'm not concerned about the strength though, I know it would be plenty strong enough. More about should I just build it how I intended or would a 'customer' want choice whether the legs come off. The commercial version that it's based off has knock down legs. This is how the commercial version attaches the legs.
  11. I posted a while back that I'm building a dining table for someone else. It's a paid one. A 50% deposit has been paid and we're just finalising a few dimensions etc. I forgot to ask him about the leg joins. I normally use homemade loose tenons for big tables. Should I have asked if he wants knockdown legs (similar to the pic) or a permanent join? Also, do any of you do anything like metal C channel or timber cleats for a big table?
  12. I've had it on our dining table and my desk for just over 2 years. The dining table has a bunch of small scratches (that were hard to photograph) on it but my wife uses the surface for sewing. My desk has a bit of wear around where the mouse is but that's it. The 2 best things I like about it are the ease of application and the way it feels.
  13. That's definitely a good idea Rick. They're drawn in line with the edge of the table top but coming in a little won't hurt.
  14. Well...I've almost landed my first dining table commission today. After a week of back and forth emails and designs, we agreed to a design, timber and price. No cash (not quite done until this happens) has exchanged hands yet as we're waiting for life to hopefully return to normal. It's been a real learning experience so far. The table is based (mostly copied) on a few designs that were sent to me. Drawn up in Fusion 360. https://www.huset.com.au/product/jutland-natural-solid-oak-dining-table-alternate-sizes-ton-cz-original
  15. Used it enough to give a review? What model did you get? That sounds like it would be super useful to quickly do a round over with no cords in the way.
