I'm thinking some of my left-over mouldings might make rather decorative raspberry canes...

I've had white Hogarth bean-sticks. :lol:

They shortly became green Hogarth. :giggle:

Of late, I've ran bits of unwanted moulding through the table saw to produce spacers when what I want is not available from my normal stock. By the time you've machined up your own spacers, it's not a particularly productive idea for standard size off the shelf spacers, but if you need a spacer in a hurry, perhaps it's o.k.

On my samples board I have a column of Sale Mouldings which are just ones that I have leftover lengths.

People enjoy getting a bargain.

You can even discount them if you wish.

Morning Steve :D

Very good idea, unfortunately, the soil in this area is "grade A silt" and anything stuck in the ground will sprout :shock:
so we would end up with more than we started :giggle:

Morning Pete

That can be a bit of a bugger then, if you are trying to bury the evidence, could end up with more incriminating evidence against you :giggle:
