Saint George killed the last dragon, and he was called a hero for it. I've never seen a dragon, and I wish he would have left at least one. Saint Patrick made a name for himself by running the snakes out of Ireland, leaving the place vulnerable to rodent infestation. This business of making saints out of men who exterminate their fellow creatures has got to stop. All I'm saying is, it's starting to get a little lonely up here at the top of the food chain.

You are an inspiration!!

I have drawn up plans and am scheming on constructing a double stack this weekend, think the additional support can be given with some brackets on the inner shelf.

Shall let you know what body part gets hit with the tools first (clumsy workman) lol

wicked thread im definatly going to try this time round, as i bought all of them last time round. One question what sort of programme do you use to design them, i have some good ideas on the sort of thing i want but using a programme to design them would be really good to help visualise them properly. Will definatly be having ago very soon.

Also if i were wanting to house something which required a more wet environment what sort of wood/board would you suggest?
