i wish someone wd produce lithium batteries to replace the old ni-cads . i have three perfectly good drills but the old batteries have packed up .
great idea but i can't grasp how the leaves fold back w'out taking up a large space over the bench. perhaps more detail wd help.
some of the items shown in these exhibitions are so good i'm tempted to give up but i'll soldier on
this video made me laugh. my current w'shop is the the front of a 2 car garage not occupied by cars . of course the cars can be moved but all eq'ment has to fit in this space. to have the whole space wd be the ultimate luxury. maybe you shd do an article on really small w'shops. i am 74 and despite the restrictions i have produced the following items over the last few yrs :drop leaf table; lift-top occasional table; nest of tables; hall table; 6ft buffet; two level auto-tray( tea trolley) with drawer. i have also converted an old piano to a desk and computer centre.
i was very interested in custom made as an idea . however when i e-mailed them asking did they operate in australia and did they have or want an agent in australia,i did not get any response.
looks very interesting. any hope of incorporating it into your newsletter so that we in the antipodes can get to see it?
very funny but i worry that little w'work will be done and at the same time the family will starve (that's a joke , Joyce) if you are interested e-mail me and i'll explain what that last part means
very interested, especially in the prospect that we in the antipodes will be able to see it on the web. no doubt you will keep us informed. regards laurie power
very nice work and congrats. but what concerns me more is the comment that the wood was going to be burnt. while woodies are paying a fortune for wood others are burning it. iknow its a dream but can't the two be co-ordinated in some way.perhaps web site where wood availability could be posted.
