In my previous video I showed how to make a home for over 130 bees from a beam off cut that I retrieved from a skip, from a raised bed build. Sadly the holes turned out to be too rough, and although the bees are capable of chewing through concrete and bricks, they were disinclined to climb into the houses rough holes. So in this video I set out to smooth them. As with the previous video I decide to do the main work in time-lapse to a fixed1t crafted version of "flight of the Bumble Bee" I created in Apple Garageband to go with it. Its well worth a watch and a great conservation and green protect to help Bees who are in decline and an endangered species, if they die off so will we! For those who get bored with my explanation of what I'm doing and why? Here is the time window so you can go straight to the time-lapse music. There are links to the original video and the unboxing of the woodturning iron in the video. Intro 00:00 - 01:31 On The Plan And Marketing Up 01:31 Time-lapse Burning To "Flight Of The Bumble Bee" Please share this widely as I hope it will encourage you and others to do more to help the bees.

How To Freeze And Store Carrots To Save Money And Prevent Food Waste

Food waste is a major problem world wide and also waste the people who buy it a huge amount of money. So anything we can do to reduce food waste whilst saving us money is a great thing, right? So here is a tip my wife devised to save us throwing away huge quantities for carrots we never got around to eating before they became inedible.
You may ask why did we buy more than we needed, well its cheaper to buy in bulk than in a few small packets that never seem to have enough in for a weeks shopping. This is a great tip and follows on from our really successful 'Mushroom Freezing Tip' which you will find here https://youtu.be/knn5NdTFG34 or linked at the end of this video.

How To Fix And Repair Broken Statues Part 2

My Wife bought this beautiful statue of a baby rabbit and mother holding hands in a dancing pose made from a resin, possibly acrylic.

In Part 1 I set about preparing the statue for fixing by aligning and strengthening the statues you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/UUFeSNGgFEA
