I finished off these units yesterday.
The Idea was Taken from Doug Fitch's visit to the workshop last week.
I was talking through some Ideas and I had seen a picture of the one Doug had made for his showroom, made from old scaffolding planks.
I loved the look of Doug's one the style really suites his rustic earthy pots.
I decided to do a bit of digging around for the best local supplier and had a word with my friendly builders merchants. I told them of the price I was looking to pay and they did me a deal if I bought 10.
But for this price they wouldn't deliver, so as they are 3.9mtrs long I had to do at least one cut on each plank in their yard with a hand saw so that I could fit them in my truck.
I decided to keep the end bits on a make a feature of them
and I've sanded this one down to see what it looks like.
The top is two and a half planks wide.
This is the second one but it hasn't been sanded yet.
