    Two weeks ago I bought a mitre box + hacksaw – so delighted to watch your video and helpful tips. I too love this type of video – love some basics re drills, etc. – close ups! My eyes are 70 years old. Many thanks for one of the best and most instructive ‘blogs’ – I always look forward to it.

      Now that’s what I call perfect timing! I’ll definitely be making more of the DIY Basic videos, and not to worry, I’m a also a big fan of close ups so you’ll see lots more of those! Thanks so much for watching 🙂
