I have a question Dizzy, completely unrelated.

Where do you get your railway sleepers from for making stands for your greenhouse? I've tried everywhere round here that I can think of but noone has them any more.

I want to make some decent car ramps as I don't trust the old rusty metal ones I have.

Steve, isn't there a railway outside your house? If you "borrowed" every other one, no one would notice.

Hi Steve thank you for your comment on u tube, the timber you spotted is actually 50 mm square tannalised fence posts  x 2 7ft and x 2 6ft, I did look for rail sleepers but I think the Helston Railway as nabbed them all :)

Nice one Dizz! How did you get on with your coffee-table setup in the end? Oh, and how much is a return ticket to pasty halt?

Cheers
