Re: Tenon Saw for a child to use

I also had a gents saw when I was about 7 or 8 - they are fairly easy for a small hand to grip. First projet could be a bench hook.

Re: Replacement Sash and Case Windows

In my opinion, it will be down to how the windows are maintained rather than what wood they are made from. I would have thought that assuming they are well made and regularly maintained and painted with an appropriate paint at regular intervals then unsorted redwood would be fine.

Re: Thickness of door panel

What are the rails and stiles going to be made from as a veneered board would match the grain even painted. Personally I won't buy or use anything other than moisture resistant mdf if you dont want a veneered board. As to thickness probably 12mm.

Re: Which Heavy duty runners for under stair cupboard?

Accuride do heavy duty full extension runners up to 700 or 800mm deep and rated up to over 200kg but they ain't cheap. Fixed castors would be a cheaper alternative. I've used accuride ones rated around 80kg with no problem.

Re: Cutting a circular oak worktop best method

I'd be tempted to mark it out and roughly cut to size with a jigsaw first leaving only 3 or 4mm oversize and then finish off with a router fixed to a tramel doing it in one pass. Using a template you would have to stop a couple of times to move the clamps or screw it to the worktop.

Re: Embarrassed to ask

Welcome. Easiest way is to clamp a straight edge to the piece of ply and then run the base of your circular saw against the straight edge. A suitable straight edge could be something like a furniture panel / melamine shelf that you get from a diy shed. to get it square, buy a reasonably large carpen...
