DIY Dan... or rather, Tim

Seems a lot of trouble, but if you've got train sets you'll recognise the problem - what to do with the masterpiece layout you've created when it's time to do the vacuuming. Now, there are any number of options, including not buying a train set and not doing the vacuuming. It was too late for the first option, and the latter wasn't open for negotiation so... I went to B&Q. I bought some hardboard sheets, some two bi' one (we experts speak like that) some nails and I transformed this...


Into this...


By way of this...


And this...


And this...


Bet you all now want to know how I did it, don't you? Well, if you really want my advice, don't bother. Because the board-that-means-we-can-pack-away-the-train-set-without-taking-up-the-track is about the size of a door and in spite of my choice of lightweight materials, about as heavy. (I couldn't get my first-choice top, sundeala board for love nor money; in fact the man at Wickes said he'd never even heard of it!) But if you do decide to have a go, don't say I didn't warn you. And make sure there are no children within ear shot while you're working. Either that, or swear in Latin.
