The brides team visits some of the world’s most beautiful love nests, because who doesn’t love a treehouse?
The best thing about travel? I can let you become a child again. That’s what happened as we arrived Harad’s The Treehotel by night, guided along an atmospherically lit, winding pathway, where the outlines of silver birch trees were just visible against a moonlit sky. The Treehotel, part-hotel, part-art-project, needs to be seen to be believed: it consists of five treehouses (The Gabin, Mirrorcube, Bird’s Nest, UFO and Blue Cone), which are private but close enough to let

One of the first pieces of advice you hear when you buy a bandsaw is to ditch the blade that comes with it and purchase a decent one.
That rings true in many instances, as the supplied blade can be inferior and be detrimental to the machine, making you believe the saw isn’t all it should be.
The same can be said of other tools that reiy on peripherals to achieve their best, and with a jigsaw there seems to be more blades and configurations than you can shake a stick at, let alone cut.

We’ve all done it. Wobble out of the liquor store, arms full of empty boxes, cozy up to even a vague acquaintance who’s got a truck, and start wrapping our possessions in newspaper with the hapless aplomb of someone clearly in over their head. Moving is one of the top ten most stressful life events. Gather your wits in advance and make moving easier.

Building a photographic website needn’t be a complicated and costly affair, as long as you stick to some basic guidelines and use a good hosting site — as Elizabeth Roberts discovered when she asked Tim Clinch to help her achieve the impossible…
Hi Tim…it was the boss. The Editor of B+W Photography magazine. ‘I’ve got an idea’ — always a bit worrying this — ‘I need a website, and I need a good edit of my pictures to go on it and, if possible, I need it done in a day. Oh…and I’ll need a blog set up as well.’

The highs and lows of adventure photography.
I’ve always had an interest in art and creativity and at school my point and shoot accompanied me on most adventures. When it came to picking a university degree I decided on natural science course thinking this was my best opportunity for a career that would take me outdoors, the p ace where . I am happiest. After studying science for four years I realized something was missing. Unsure of what this was I looked for a place to get lost in introspection and the ocean seemed the perfect destination: The day after

Dealers and designers give suppliers passing grades when it comes to delivering the products and services most important to them, although there are apparently improvements still needed within the product-supply chain.
For kitchen and bath product suppliers, there’s seemingly both good and bad news as companies continue to find their legs in a market that’s clearly recovering but, nevertheless, remains challenging.
The good news is that dealers and designers give suppliers generally passing grades when it comes to delivering the products and services most important to them. The bad news is that there are clearly improvements needed within the industry’s

On first glance this machine looks very much like the Czech machines that came in a few years ago.
Though very basic in their looks they were also built very robustly — qualities embodied by this Far Eastern planer/ thicknesseser from Charnwood. The metalwork on the planer is ail very chunky and solid, contributing to its considerable 210kg weight.
That mass is especially noticeable when swapping between planing and thicknessing modes as there’s no gas strut to help take the strain j when lifting the beds, and as both beds lift simultaneously, you need to be reasonably strong!

Last time we spoke to MATTHEW SEED he was busy hiring assistants for his studio, so we asked him to share some dos and don’ts. and tell us how to recognise the perfect assistant among your applicants.
I get a lot of emails from people wanting to assist me, but despite the regular flow of applications, very few of the people I take on actually work out. The main problem seems to be that everybody thinks of themselves as a photographer. They come to me with ready-made portfolios and some even have a website saying they are a photographer, and

We spoke to the chief engineer on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket about how development is progressing
What is your role as chief engineer?
My job is to manage the design of SLS from a technical point of view, so day-to-day I make decisions on any design changes that need to be made to the launch vehicle. At the end of July we’ll hold a review board and basically make a decision as to whether we’re ready to proceed on to Critical Design Review in about 18 months or so.
Is everything on track for the first scheduled flight in December
