Baltic Birch Supplier in North East

Hi All, Disclaimer: I'm new to woodworking, please be gentle. :) I've made the odd item out of the cheap "external plywood" that you can buy from Maxwell's DIY and I'm astonished by how bad that ply is (impossible to route cleanly, voids every few inches, warps if you breathe on it the wrong way) an...

Re: Trying to find tradesman but don't know what to look for

Mark, thanks for that, that gives me a ball park on what to expect it to cost. I'm looking for someone more local though, I think, as I'd want them to come to the house to help me pick the finish, etc, as I can't pack up my speakers to bring to someone (too damned heavy).

Re: Trying to find tradesman but don't know what to look for

Trying to find tradesman but don't know what to look for

Hi All, I've got a pair of speakers with a grey elm (I think) semi-gloss lacquered veneer with some damage in them and I've got another speaker (same set, wrong colour) that I'd like refinished to match the others. I also want a TV stand built to match the set (a complex design) and am having troubl...
