Frequently asked questions.

What is the layout of your workshop?

What is the black material you use a lot in your video's?

Answer: The material used for my workbench and other jigs is Black MDF, something similar to Valchromat. It is more dense than "normal" mdf of a good quality. Here are some links where you can buy this product. These links came from my viewers. It is possible the links are broke.

What did you use to finish the Black MDF

Answer: My first workbench, I did not finish at all. If it was to dirty I just removed it with some sanding paper. But I tried to finished it with "Rustins Danish Oil" You can see an example of this in episode 14 of China tools. I did the pocket hole platform with Danish oil. I plan to finish my workbench with Danish oil coming weeks.
