Thanks VW Mick!

Yes, that's a car jack lift. (Acquired for the total sum of €5 from a flea market  ;)
The jack goes perfectly with the of1400 spring.

Great design!!   I'm going to steal your principle for a cutting board I need to make.  Very nice shop...first time I've seen the Plano panel clamping rack in one other than mine.  Your router table is a great self made project in a room full of great machines.  I'm getting ready to put a deposit on a A3 41 as they are on sale here in the US.  Hope to see more of your projects.

Inspirational - not only swings, but table tops, cutting boards and other surfaces.
If you don't like Signatures, just go to Look and Layout and tick No Signatures.

Make sure to cut end grain plugs when doing an end grain board. But indeed, sky is the limit!

Thanks

Love your videos... still not quite got round to making the mobile caster fixings like yours.. was a good reminder to see how easily you could full the Felder out!

Were those Gransfors axes I spotted on the wall - loving my small splitting axe from them
