    Maybe I could seal it with epoxy, and include a small concrete 'feature' section in the middle somehow?

    That would be sure boost my patreon numbers...

    yes - I think looking into a bit more, you can get a decent finish using epoxy etc, which I can do, but not sure I can be bothered with that much work.

    Yes - that's true. Might not be possible to build sufficient finish on the cross section of the board. I could maybe put an edge of ply around it and rout a radius, but that's likely more effort than I want to go to.

    Might be the wrong thread for this...

    Has anyone ever taken OSB to a decent surface finish? I'm going to buy a sit / stand desk frame and stick a top on it.

    I have a huge neoprene mouse mat that everything sits on, so it wouldn't touch or irritate my arms, but probably needs some sort of finish. I imagine sanding to c.180 and varnishing it with something would do - anyone got any experience?

    other like-minded countries

    How about our nearest neighbours in Europe to start with?

    It'd need a snappy name if we hope to sell it on the side of a bus.

    what's a polite length of time to leave it before we start asking to be let back in ?

    Do you think one, or two generations?

    Surely all our anger should be turned towards the fuckers who knowingly lied and led these people along.

    Most of our anger, yes. But in this case Cameron et al abdicated making a decision and opened it up to us.

    Of course we were all unqualified to make a the decision properly. Even so it was blindingly, painfully obvious to me that Johnson and Farage were liars and shouldn't be trusted.
    I wasn't privy to any information that the rest of the country didn't have access; I'm of average inteligence; I don't follow the news much more than anyone else.

    I'll be reserving some anger for, and don't donate all my sympathy to, the mugs that didn't have the responsibilty to make a fairly obvious, sensible decision.

    Charges of almost £100 on a £300 order of linen from a .co.uk company, which turned out to be based in Berlin.

    What are your rights with these? I assume if you refuse to pay the fees they get sent back to the company you ordered from, and they refund you what?

    What if you don't like them and want to send them back? What portion of the £100 fees would you see again, and how would you get it?

    Don't they get published shortly afterwards? I'm sure I've read a couple.

    Wonder if we'll see it
