Now what do you think I can make out of these which will be very useful around the garden?

Could be damaging to the environment but I could wait until the wind is blowing towards Newbridge and send the carbon particles your way!

You don't get it. I have thought of a great use for these free offcuts that will save me a good few bob and others too when I show you what I will turn them into. I was just teasing to see if anyone else comes up with the same idea.

why didnt you say I thought you were serious, Ok when you dig a trench for holding water in your garden due to water tax, they can act as small sluice gates for holding back the water.

No try again. I did say and I am always serious. No rice here.

Like that monstrosity of a hedgehog up your way Sive?
No again, this has a practical garden use and pricy enough in the garden centres, approx. 1-50 each.

Yaaaay. Give that man a prize. Off you all go now to your local fascia and soffit man and ask for the offcut waste and get yourselves a jigsaw and away you go. Plant labels for nothing and for life thanks tagwex.
They are cut offset so as I can get two rather than one out of the same length, I need 50 or 60 of these next week so I started to think what could I get hold of for nothing that I could adapt and use. You are a wise old sage greengage.

Very good.

But I don't like them off-centre. Why can't you do them normal-like?

I know that they are not near as fancy as yours but they are practical and free. The explanation was in the post, "They are cut offset so as I can get two rather than one out of the same length," If the spike ran up the middle I would only get one at 300mm long, having them offset I get 2 from 380mm. Simples.

Tagwex, Do you mind if I ask you something? Do you get out and about much?
