They look a bit like floorboards, Hilda? Pine or spruce, perhaps?

Hi David,

It is 'wood' that you find everywhere, where one stacks things onto. To transport things, it is usually thrown away (discarded of), so they form a sort of platform, in a rectangular shape, and are about 1.20 meter or so long...
Perhaps you know what I mean?

Hi Hilda. I thought, afterwards, that loorboards would be very expenisve to re-use in this way. I think that the word you are looking for is "pallet".

Thanks a lot, David.
Because the word is the same in Dutch, I thougth it could not be possible to be the same.

You are very welcome, Hilda!! Glad that I was of some use :-)) Of course, I meant floorboards, above - not loorboards, lol!! Am finding that I have to type slower with this new text size, or letters get left out. :-(

Pallets here are usually square, 1 x 1metre. I have seen pics of benches and tables made by members on here in the past - excellent. They are difficult to get, however, as they belong to individual companies, and should be returned to them.

This must have been a very interesting exhibition!!

Yes, there also was a wormery, then the produce of liquid feed from comfrey etc.

neat idea. worth thinking about on a smaller scale; it'd be a lot cheaper and a whole lot more fun than buying a bench

lol I don't see very well, and when I first clicked the picture, I read the title as "skin garden", which made me look a lot closer!
