Wanted: Boards
« on: December 27, 2017, 07:36:33 pm »
I am looking for old scaff boards, planks etc.. to use on the allotment.

Ideally they would be unwanted items I can collect over the next month from the peak, dales or anywhere in between (based in wakefield) but dont mind paying beer tokens if you have a large QTY.

I'm after about 80M worth all together to retain a chipping path so every little helps!

Cheers

Antwan

This group might be worth a shout? Rotherham based, so up north.

Otherwise it's an idea to look at pallet collars, they might(?) be a cheaper alternative if your allotment doesn't have to look the business.

I think you mean your allotment not The Allotment.

Not sure how wide builder's boards are.  10 inches ?  A bit overdoing it.

I use scrap wood  3 x 2 inches, available from any builder who is doing up a house.

I think I have blagged a falling down shed that should have enough planks - just need the check it's not creosote covered or similar
