    good AND cheap

    I have a pack of these, and a pack of Stanley FatMax. These are half the price and are way, way sharper. https://cpc.farnell.com/duratool/d00285/knife-blades-100pc/dp/TL10494

    Back in the '60s nearly all beech.

    Joke Thread 4

    That one struck a chord. My boy died two years ago at the end of March (at twenty) and we say every time we pass a McD that's another £8.03p saved. He'd be welcome to any number of £8.03p's.

    Ground screws for shed builders

    That was my first thought - how much would it cost to get them in the ground.

    Thank you for the vote of confidence, but there are people here with far more knowledge than me. :)

    EBay info

    I found eBay worse than useless, and PayPal just as bad.

    Is Gorilla woodglue strong enough for this project?

    It would be good if people discussing adhesives would specify in the OP which one they're actually using, not just the make. Gorilla is possibly the worst for this but many manufacturers make numerous different adhesives.

    serpentine turning

    Years ago I had a beautiful red and green piece but I don't know where it went. I remember watching the turners as a child - there were several right down at the Lizard then.

    Is Gorilla woodglue strong enough for this project?

    If you use pins or oval nails first give the sharp ends a tap with a hammer to blunt them - they don't tend to split the wood then, they act like a chisel severing fibres rather than a wedge parting them.
