    @Dramatic_Hammer I think Draper and Stanley had very similar handle shapes. Most likely one of those brands.

    Does anyone know where I could get some melamine coated birch ply cut to size? Looking to replace some shelving - thinking face coated ply with the edge grain showing.

    I’m in Scotland so it would need to be delivered.

    Whats the best way for me to get an internet connection from my house to a garden office/shed. Its approx 20 m away from the rear fo my house and my router is at the front.

    @will101 - I would second the suggested from mespilus. However, could you lift the left most board that meets the widest edge of the hearth i.e not the one that goes under the floorboard? That might be easier to lift and you don't risk damaging the skirting. Then do what mespilus said above.

    @Tenderloin I was pretty happy with the finish I achieved using a Zinsser primer and Farrow and Ball "cabinet paint" watered down ever-so slightly and layered up carefully (I'm not really sure if its for cabinets but F&B sales person said it would work).

    If I was planning on re-doing a kitchen in 2-3 years I would try and make the best of what I had for the next 2-3 years. By the time you've got wood cut to size (current situation would delay this I suspect) got them fitted (also delayed right now) or fitted them yourself it would be 6 months or more down the line.

    From a quick google the Somerton range is inset, so whatever doors you get you're still going to have the frame of the cabinets exposed - how would you deal with that colour irregularity if there was one?

    On the Magnet website the Somerton range is listed as "Framed painted solid timber" - doesn't that mean it could be sanded back and painted? I would maybe give Magnet a shout to see what their interpretation of painted solid timber is.

    @Bobbo - so If I have a log cabin but put batons on the inside to create a vertical frame of sorts but these were not attached to the logs just maybe the floor and roof - could I clad / insulate that as I'm not restricting the movement of the logs?

    Hope that made sense.

    Decking in a small but shaded area - is this a dreadful idea? I just can't come to terms with gravel/stones for some reason.

    Grass would never really work due to the shaded nature of the area and it'll be a section off a small shed type thing so suspect heavy footfall.

    Managed to get it started and took it for a drive via Halford’s and picked up my own trickle charger - I’ll put it on for a full day tomorrow and hopefully sort it.

    Thanks @ElephantBreathlynx - I’m about 5 miles from Loch Lomond, Scotland so we’re a few miles apart 🙂.

    I’ve got it trickle charging at 4amps - I’ll give it till about 8pm to see if I’ve got anything. Cheers!
