"Hi Fraser. Not sure what a negative 45 hinge is. Reminds me though of a cupboard I made last year in an oddly shaped hallway. Used cup hinges 90'. Adjusted the angle with a wedge to suit my purpose. Worked a treat. Makes sense? Take care Henk"

Remote control beam

Hi. Designing a TV cabinet. Underneath the TV, I need the usual slot for the DVD player. Customer would prefer to cover that space and hide the machine from sight. Problem is the remote. I thought of making a kind of picture frame with a material that lets through the infra red beam. Anyone has any ideas and experience with this. Thank you so much.See More

"Henk, if you are using pipe for the metal sections, just use pipe fittings for the threaded inserts. You could mount a threaded pipe flange on the bottom of the timber legs, bore all the way through the timber, then thread the pipe into the bottom…"

"Thanks Will Sampson. See your point. Have never seen 11/2" or 2" threaded inserts before, which doesn't mean they don't exist. How about boring through the log and running a threaded bar all the way through. In that way I can…"

"Henk, what about threading the pipe and putting threaded inserts into the timber feet? That also would allow for takedown for shipping/storage. Threading lag bolts into wood end grain is a probably not a good way to go as over time and with changes…"

Steel Table legs ending in timber blocks

Guys,Hi. I'm making a dining room table. The timber top will be connected to a steel frame. The legs are steel pipe 1" or 1 1/2". The legs will end in timber blocks of approx 10" height. My problem is how to connect the pipe to the timer 'feet' . I discussed the design with the welder and best we came up with is weld a lag bolt to the pipe, pre-drill the timber and screw the leg on, with Tec7 as adhesive. He will connect the steel to prvent racking, but not too sure if that's enough. Any…See More

Hi. I'm making a dining room table. The timber top will be connected to a steel frame. The legs are steel pipe 1" or 1 1/2". The legs will end in timber blocks of approx 10" height. My problem is how to connect the pipe to the block. The easy way is drill a hole in the block and sink the pipe into it. Not too sure if that works, might be wobbly. Any suggestions, please? Much appreciated. HenkSee More

Henk, I'd love to see photos of the 1832 chest. Where did it come from?
