    Well, at least there is hope of getting something worthwile out of it...

    If the High St stores didn't sell such ghastly furniture IKEA wouldn't get a look in. But, yet again, were getting into Humble Opinion territory. It would be a dull world if we all liked the same stuff.

    Well we all know that it does come in usefull, I always get lost somewhere between lamps and kitchenwares. That shop is so disorientating..... Likely the lack of windows.

    Isn't it nice when someone says "that's a great piece of kit, where did you buy that", then you can modestly reply "you can't buy it, I made it myself". The moral is, it's amazing what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

    I get over the stress of going by picking up lots of swedish snacks for bush crafting.... But I suppose being from norway you don't even enjoy that bit? That is hell!

    Just for a bit of balance
    They do make a great hook knife sharpener.

    And no, you can't buy it online
