Re: Bottom Door Rail

I agree with Sainty. This has been standard practice for as long as i've been doing Joinery, the tenon being offset by a few mm really doesn't matter. Edit- Normally the Tenon is 100% in the rebated section or 100% on the moulded section if there is a big enough flat area, splitting it half and half...

Re: Levelling workshop floor - What is "screed" ?

You really need to get to the underlying problem of why the floor is cracked in the first place, otherwise the crack will continue through any new surface in short time. Neither screed nor SLC have any great strength SLC does as the name suggests and is designed to even up minor floor discrepancies,...

Re: Critique please as they say over there!

I really like it. It looks designed to be made in steel and glass though. As Ed says there will be a lot of stress on the joints and although easy to make in timber i'm not sure how well it will hold up. Maybe increasing the leg and rail section slightly, and widening the curved end of the rails and...

Re: Side Board top

It sounds like standard laminated pine board, commonly used in the pine furniture industry. If it matches, why not just replace the top with the same stuff? It's cheap and readily available.

Re: Which quality screws do people recommend?

I think this question can only really be answered based on the use of the screw.
Most of the screws i use are cheap but decent single thread passivated type, but like others on here, i use special screws for MDF, a certain type when kitchen fitting a different type again when window fixing etc.
