I think Masterwood do the same machine branded under their own name, it's Chinese.
I was told, it will be fine but don't expect a great lifetime out of them and be aware parts may not be readily available.

Re: BB Ply acceptable amount of repairs?

Sounds about right, patches I presume. The trick is to try and cut the sides so the patches are at the top and back, or under a shelf, impossible to see then in a full cupboard.

oak table

Hi, Here is a table we made last month. European oak, dimensions are 2.1m x 2.1m by 60mm. Amazingly heavy, the top comes away from the base it took 4 of us to lift it in and then we had to slide it on a blanket across the kitchen. http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn200/Armjor/IMG_14911_zps2o5eeog0...
