My teeth have arrived!

When I discovered that I could buy sets of acrylic teeth from China for very little money, how could I possibly resist?

I have certain plans for these.

Garden Seating

A long time ago, I sawed the bench seats off one of our picnic tables, because they were more of a nuisance than anything else.

Then, quite a bit later on, I dragged them out of storage and turned them into seats again by making some trestles for them to sit on. I thought that using trestles would be a good idea.

I was wrong.

It turns out that trestles are actually kind of a pain in the arse if you want to move the bench around, because each trestle and the bench-seat have to be moved individually, and then be set up again.

So now I've dismantled a couple of the trestles and turned them into permanent legs for the benches, which makes the benches themselves easier to move about, and also got me back four strap-hinges I can use on some other project.

I might have to add stretchers between the legs, but maybe not. I'll see how they go.
