Hello. Some people are good at crosswords, others enjoy a challenging game of Sudoku, and some like pub quizzes. I am no good at any of those things, my brain doesn't work like that, but I do like to put things together on a more practical level. I used to love my brothers meccano set, I played with it more than he did.
Today I was searching through my bit box for something to join two pieces of wood together, something metal with two screw holes in. I haven't got the exact right pieces and I don't want to buy anything, so I thought, improvise. I have a lot of these cupboard door catches left over from when I had a new kitchen. A bash with the hammer did a good job of breaking them apart, bingo, a small piece of metal, just right for the job. I left some of them flat.
This is the front, the entrance to get in and out. The plan is to put a long length of timber along the top, bridging the gap. Only trouble is the two sides are not lined up very well. I need to have a think about it, there must be a solution, hmmmmm.
