    Garden room project

    I assume that counts as substantially non-combustible, given how close it is to the boundary. Talking of which, I don't know whose fence that is, but if it's his he'll regret not replacing it while he could still get at it.

    Recommendations for a Planer/Thicknesser

    Also, Gandalf - why are you using reclaimed ones? If it's for the character, then fine, but I've been looking at scaffold boards recently, with the idea of using them for fencing, and I've found that reclaimed ones have gone the same way as sleepers, and acquired a "trending premium", and now...

    Recommend plastic handled chisel.

    Thanks. Now I need to decide if that bit of scientific knowledge makes me feel any better about it. Ditto if I ever learn (or CBA to find out) why some soft grippy kitchen knife handles have gone sticky...
