I've got wood

Lots and lots of it!

I have about 80 greenheart blocks varios sizes but most about 3@ long and 12" square.

They avee been used to block up yachts but would be useful as rustic garden seating, chain-sawn up for wood burners,or you could make a scale model of stone henge!

either way, they are free to a good home.

call me 07899 0-75313 or PM

Regards

Steve

WOW! I so wish I was closer, these chunky rustic blocks fetch a good price on fleebay, especially when sanded back a little, and then waxed or oiled, then sold on as rustic lamp and candle stands,etc. £80 + a piece.

PS; One mans cr@p is another mans gold.

On that basis there's £6,400 sitting waiting for someone that can hook up a trailer and get down to Plymouth!

Watch out for splinters when handling greenheart. You can get some pretty nasty infections from the splinters off that stuff!

That may cause damage to your springs, by fully loading, each chunk would be 10/20kg+.


ps It would be nice to think collectors would make a small donation to the McRib fund or whatever DR thinks. for each load, if re-selling for profit.

Ah, so the Black and Decker and tenon saw ain't going to cut the mustard then
Seriously, if it is that difficult to work I may have to pass, had ideas that are obviously above my skill threshold
So yes, it was for myself, and I think the MacRib has already had quite a bit of me

Not a bad thought even if you are not reselling! I'm thinking of getting some for the Garden in my Wife's House D'ya think it would be OK with Steve if I made a Donation to DEC instead of Macrib

My idea of being poor is not having enough cash to buy a new Yammie I think these poor Fkkrs might have a different idea!

Hey Stu that sounds a wonderfull thoughtful idea, to another very worthwhile cause.
However I'm making no more comments on potential money making ideas, all the best mate, hope you can knock up somthing nice for your wife's garden.
