The predicament: Ottomans absorb area, no room for coffee desk. Ripping 16" section off birch plywood panel. Marking the middle to find where the corners shall be. Seven kerfs spaced 1/4" apart. Raising blade to depart just 1/8" of material. Scariest phase! Strolling the plywood to cut the kerf. Phew! Cutting the relaxation of the kerfs. Experiment bend. Set depth of circular noticed to just about chew by way of. Plunge cut. These create house for hidden splines. Scan bend. Scrap hardwood ripped to fit in the circular saw kerf. Cutting out splines. Competent for the glue up! Apply quite a lot of glue! Clamp and investigate for square. Insert splines and let dry for just a few days. Ancient desk leg, follow adhesive and sandpaper. Best for cleansing up the within curves. Fill any left over voids. Sand tender. Not bad! Placing collectively leaves a void. Let’s fix it! Marking so it will be flush with the flat surfaces. Cut out on the bandsaw. Round edges on disc sander. Developing the core strip. Atmosphere blade to reduce 15 cutting one facet. Flip and slice different aspect. I went so far as wanted, killed the table saw and took out the piece instead than run it totally via unsafely.That’ll do. Marking out the profile for a lap joint. Slicing out on the bandsaw. Gluing in position. Apply polyurethane. Line inside of with a slippery material. Trim flush with razor blade. It suits! This one suits too! Move two together so as to add the flush insert.

I’m going to show you how to install bambooscreening. Material we need for the job are our nettingclips, our wire and our eyelets. Tools we need for the job are our drill, tapemeasure, screwdriver, pliers and our crimping tool. We’re going to install our eyelets into thefence to run our wire through to hang the bamboo fencing off. Now we’ve got three eyelets so we’re justgoing to fix them to the same heart of the rails of the fence, starting from the topand working down.I’ve got my drill with my drill bit so I’mgoing to do a pilot hole. A handy hint when fixing the eyelets to thefence is use a screwdriver, fit it through the eyelet like that, and then just turn it. Also too, when you’ve finished screwing inthe eyelet to the fence, make sure that it is running vertically to take your wire torun down the fence. Now we have our first row of eyelets in, we’regoing to go ahead and install the rest of our eyelets along our fence. Now, the distance that we have to span, we’regoing to go one in the middle and then one at either end.The next step in the process is running ourwire through the eyelets and tying it off at each end. You might need someone to give you a handwith this so I’ve got my mate Andy to come and give me a hand. He’s going to hold one end and we’re goingto measure our length of wire before we fit it through the eyelets. Thank you Andy. Now we’re going to cut it to length. When you cut it, it always pays to do 100mmextra than what you need so you’ve got wire to tie it off. Now that we’ve cut our wire, we’re going tofeed it through the eyelets and tie it off. So now that we’ve got our wires run throughour eyelets, we’re going to fix it off at each end. It’s just a matter of getting your wire andjust twisting it round each other and then snipping it off at the end. Now that we’ve got this end tied off, we’regoing to go down the other end and take tension on the wire and tie the other end off.It’s also a good idea that as you’re walkingdown the wire to stretch it out and take any kinks out of it as you’re working down it. Next step in the process is to roll out ourbamboo fencing, fixing the bamboo fencing to our wire with our crimping tool and ournetting clips. It’s just a simple process of putting thenetting clip in the crimping tool like that, and then applying pressure just to clamp itdown like that. We’re going to go ahead and crimp the restof the wire, doing spaces at three to four hundred as we go along on each wire.When we get to the next bamboo sheet, it’sjust a matter of rolling it out and butting it up to the existing bamboo sheet, and thencrimping it off. Now that we have crimped off our three wires,we’ve got a bit of an opening at the top up there. It’s just a matter of bringing them togetherand crimping them together on these two wires out of there. Now that we’ve got our bamboo screening rolledout against the fence, it’s just a matter of crimping off this end. Now it’s also a good tip that when you’recrimping it just to make sure that you crimp it through a loop of the wire, so you cantake tension on it and so it doesn’t slide down the wire.As you can see, we’ve come to the end of ourrun. We have a little bit of overhang. It’s just a simple matter of getting yourtin snips and snipping off each wire, leaving an inch overhang from the end of the eyelet. And that’s how you go about installing bambooscreening..
