    rag 'n' bone brown diresta

  2. KE. Gardner says:

    Turned out very nice.

  3. Andrew Joy says:

    Thats one of the best looking things you have made, bravo.

  4. Really nice work! Great use of reclaimed oak!

  5. Great table top, enjoy all your videos but sometimes wonder if you're using too much glue which means some of those tighter joints struggle to come together? Look forward to part 2 πŸ™‚

  6. Great project,I love the look of waxed oak,it has such a great warmth to it. Must have taken you a good few hours with all the stock prep,but well worth it.

  7. Nice work Keith, that wood grain comes through really nice with the Briwax. Well Done, Barry (from West Kirby, Wirral)

  8. Love oak but so expensive here in the U.K. I was surprised the Briwax took after a coat of Danish oil .

  9. Ed music says:

    awesome work as always dude… ahh briwax had some amazing thoughts whilst high waxing stuff ive made lmao

  10. Chem Cody says:

    What a great use of cut-offs Keith.
    I can't wait to see the finished piece.
    I thought of door stops too when you were ripping down the larger pieces. Everybody needs a good door stop, right?

  11. james thorpe says:

    Your work is stunning keep it up sir. I learn alot watching your vids thanks

  12. Mr Frog says:

    Can't wait to see you bring this one on home in part 2, well done sir.

  13. Keith that's such a lovely little table you made, you really are very talented at what you do .

  14. Great video mate! Good to see some UK woodworkers on here. πŸ™‚
    Could i be cheeky and ask what camera you are using, I want to upgrade mine for future videos.

  15. Excellent job.I have a stack of beech architrave someone gave me that I didn't quite know what to do with. Problem solved. Great video, keep them coming please.

  16. Andrew Joy says:

    Would this finish be hard wearing enough for a desk ?

    I was thinking of building a new desk , well buying a block oak countertop from ikea ( the solid wood one) and doing the rest myself.

    I was thinking several layers of danish oil and then the wax would be enough, what do you think ?

  17. Snoop? Is that you I hear?

  18. How many W is your band saw?
    I do not own one yet. I have an eye on one but it is only 250 W.
    Is that enough for cutting harder woods than pine?

  19. MKRM27 says:

    I am liking your channel. You do similar projects, and have similar tools to me. It's great seeing a typical UK garage/shed sized workshop on YouTube, rather than those enormous US ones!

  20. Seeing all that buffing going on I thought of something. A few years back, in a fit of enthusiasm after buying a new car, I bought a car polisher (about Β£15 from Halfords, I think). This was an orbital sander with a thick pad. Do you think that would come in useful for jobs like the one you just did?

  21. DRMNZ says:

    great use of 'scrap' wood, super design too.

  22. Colin Angus says:

    Do you use the nail gun because it's faster? Is it any better than nailing by hand.

  23. Keith Miller says:

    Great looking table, you might check your table/miter saw and calibrate it for perfect 45 degree cut; that's the only flaw I could see.Β  Other than that, great job!!

  24. Dapper Don says:

    Okay you make amazing projects mate but the mitres on that trim don't look good.

  25. TomKaren94 says:

    Nice to see someone using danish oil and briwax. I use only that combination on all my projects now. I will never poly ever again.
