Tomorrow’s The Day!

by | Jul 30, 2013 | 4 comments

I’m very pleased to say that the first part of our Wall Cupboard video will be available tomorrow. Helen’s been hard at it with the editing and though it’s taken a few days longer than expected we’re learning fast and really starting to enjoy making these – I’m already thinking about the next project!

We’ll post on here and also on our YouTube channel so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss it! In this first part we’re bringing together the basic carcase and cover the timber preparation, joinery and the glue up and there’s plenty of little tips in there.

At twenty minutes this video’s much longer than our others so you might want to prepare with a nice cup of tea before pressing play.

If you haven’t seen the plan for this cupboard then you can download it in the post here. Just click on the red text under the photo and then click it again on the next page (Sorry about this, I don’t get why it has to be clicked twice?)

    Like a young adult in a high street retail establishment that is furnished with fine confectionary, I’m pretty excited about this. Thank you for your generosity in doing these videos, it’s always very much appreciated.

    Helen, great job with the editing!! And, well done to the one(s) shooting the camera and framing the scenes! Looking forward to more videos.


    P.S. You stated in one of the videos to be careful and not “bugger” up the work you’ve done thus far. I’m a bit rusty with my languages and can’t remember if bugger up is Latin for “mild dent” or “deep scratch”.
