    Following on from the discussion about Simon's bookshelf project I have replied in his thread and hope it may give some ideas.

    Very tall bookshelf: design and sagging - Page 2 (woodworkforums.com)

    The biggest issue I see is nothing to do with the engineering issues but seeking approval from the aesthetic police and I have to say I do know just how difficult that can be.

    Hi all.

    Well it's a Monday at work for me so this sort of feels weird

    I look forward to seeing and talking to you tomorrow.

    Friday lunch prattle: Anyone is welcome, please join in

    Considering we had a long chat on shelves I thought I'd just recycle the possible missed topics from last week unless someone has a better idea

    This weeks topic options:
    The differences between USA, UK and AU workshops
    Accuracy and repeatability are not the same


    Friday: Time: 12:00 - 12:40 AEDT
    Yep that's lunchtime for some of us so bring a coffee

    Cheers
    Phil

    PS the AU/UK/US thought came about as I have three forums open on my ipad to read, one from each country and some of the differences in equipment and attitudes is vast. Some of it is clearly driven by the size of the space.

    Thanks Phil,

    My first week back in the office has been hard work, and lost track of the days, so thanks for the reminder!

    See you all tomorrow!

    This is for Paul and anyone else who wants to do the occasional small to medium forging or heat treating.

    Making a Simple Forge - YouTube

    Youtuber is Neil Paskin - PaskMakes.

    A possible modification to Neil's design is to cut a hole in the bottom of the can and make the hole go right through, and put the torch nozzle centrally in the tunnel. This allows you to put longer objects in or put a rod right through to heat the centre to bend it etc. Both ends open will also allow more oxygen in for a cleaner burn. Google "coffee can forge" for similar videos.

    You can make these things out of scrap for next to nothing.

    Is this the "full length wooden drawer slides" video you were talking about?
    How To Make Wooden Full Extension Drawer Slides - Woodworking - YouTube
    At about 65 seconds into the video he flashes up some plans. Should be all you need?

    Yes, that video and this one Making The Coolest Toolbox Ever - Woodworking - YouTube

    Between them it's all most of us should need to make something workable.

    Thanks.

    For Simon

    This is one of about five videos my son (also Simon) has made while locked down in Norway. They include brewing beer from glacial ice, building an ice cave (called a quinzee) in -30įC temperatures and building a mobile sauna on a double axle trailer, but this link is for building a pizza oven using scrap metal salvaged from a shipwreck:

    (6) Something from Nothing - NORTH & BEYOND Ep. 2 - Outdoor pizza oven in TromsÝ Norway - YouTube

    He is using it to promote tourism for when the restrictions are relaxed and conditions return to near normal.
