1 Jul, 2012

1 Jul, 2012

1 Jul, 2012

1 Jul, 2012

 

Great for roadside plant sales too.

1 Jul, 2012

 

absolutely!!!!

im just thinking maybe paint it green?? it would look so smart!!!

1 Jul, 2012

 

Im a bit worried about the cooking stevie ~ will you have to stand on the bench to stir the chutney now?

1 Jul, 2012

 

Wow such a versatile object! :0)

1 Jul, 2012

 

They could come in green for the garden, blue for a boy, pink for a girl. I do admire people who can make things a good as this.

1 Jul, 2012

1 Jul, 2012

 

Lol.

1 Jul, 2012

 

Nice job Stevie - well done mate. Geoff Hamilton would be proud of you. :-))

1 Jul, 2012

 

ST ''wish they had let me do woodwork at school'' lol well i cant see them teaching this lol, but actually i would like them too ; )

Pixi, Kitchen table..hmmm no...wait n see
Fran dressing table, hehe good idea but no
as is mosaic table

baby changing DRC lol, well it has gaps in it ; )

GMM great idea oh wheels NOW thats a bit warmer

ok well you might be on the right track someone, wait a few days and who knows

1 Jul, 2012

 

DRc, well to be honest I hadn't had disabled gardeners in mind. But an excellent observation.

For a person who has a disability the height is whatever you want for your purpose. It can be as long as your chosen uprights or as low as you like if perhaps you use a wheelchair

You can chose large heavy pallets if you want it supper solid and permanent or like this light ones so its easy to move

This one is made for my height.
One tip i would say to get the right height is to stand, arms by sides and put your hands flat, palms facing floor and thats about the top height you want.
This is important as you dont wanna be leaning over forward, even slightly as it'll make your back ache so I add half an inch to that so i am stood back straight.

correct answer coming in a couple of days ; )
(If there's any localish person who has a disability and could really use one, i'll do you a bespoke one for free ok)

I know! Its a wee house for Gingernuts! you are going to add a roof?

1 Jul, 2012

 

Thats a great offer Stevie, I would love a staging table like that with a potting shed to house it.

1 Jul, 2012

 

Is it a moveable potting up table with wheels, compost & pots underneath and plants on top, and able to move it to wherever you need it?

1 Jul, 2012

 

What ever it is you've made a good job of it :)

1 Jul, 2012

 

Tapping on the desk waiting....

2 Jul, 2012

2 Jul, 2012

2 Jul, 2012

2 Jul, 2012

 

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

2 Jul, 2012

 

make some suggestions pixi ~ perhaps stevie will change the original idea??

2 Jul, 2012

 

I suggested a house for gingernuts ..but alas it was wrong..IDK..maybe he is going to set up a stall down the road and sell veg? or clems! or gingernuts lol

2 Jul, 2012

 

sell gingernuts??? he would have to be caught and taken out of his box first!!!

perhaps there are enough snail babies to sell now?

oh i just thought perhaps its going to be a house for that naughty chicken that wandered in stevie's house?

2 Jul, 2012

 

Oh i meant coffee and gingernuts dunked lol not that gingernuts! haha
snail house! eek! I could give him loads! my tree is full of them!
wish he hurry up...prolly snoring by now!

2 Jul, 2012

 

probably!!!

stevie has pond snails!!

snails climbing up the tree?

bet there are masses outside my back door right now

2 Jul, 2012

 

Th snails LIVE in the tree! :)

3 Jul, 2012

 

I never knew they did that, is that why I have so many? Masses of trees here!

3 Jul, 2012

 

Idk ST Dman nuisnace they are them and the slugs! JSUt squished a few jsut now when i went out to feed the birds. Maybe the blackbirds will eat them!

3 Jul, 2012

 

Perhaps Stevie is creating the new wooden horse of Monmouthshire? It's going to wage war on snails and anything else that needs sorting out!

3 Jul, 2012

3 Jul, 2012

 

Late arriving .....Bad back and pies slow me down..Tis a fine utilitarian bench. I could dangle Bruces legs there and shower him down.

But my keen eye spots a tool box on wheels to the left...Close up Pics please with instructions.

3 Jul, 2012

 

pies????

sorry about your back pimms, now a bench like this might help cos you wouldnt have to bend down at all!!

3 Jul, 2012

 

Aha..will go look Stevie..sorry was away yesterday :)

4 Jul, 2012

 

Pimper, are you carrying or eating those pies? well those boxes are ikea ones. got a 4 pack of wheels n screwed them on basically. easier juts to trundle the toolbox out and outside if i need to do something on the car or as you see here in the kitchen ; ) Its basically the toolbox sitting in it with some heavier and bits n bobs underneath

4 Jul, 2012
