Earlier today my parents were given a box of old books to have a look through. You probably know the score - keep the ones that interest you and pass on, sell or dispose of what's left.

There were some good books amongst the pile - some kids books, a couple of Bill Bryson's and a load of very random stuff that probably would interest Joe Bloggs in a million years.

But one of the books was this one - Garden carpentry : span-roof greenhouse, tool shed, wheelbarrow, gates, garden lights, summer house, shelter, etc. (Interested? Full book details below!)

The content of the book was just great and a true sign of the times which gave you ideas on everyday items you could build for your garden. Everything from birdtables to chairs, gates to fences, tool sheds to summer houses.
