........after taking a deep breath, I picked the pieces up off the floor and surveyed the damage. A few more splits in the edges and a snapped shaft or two. Ta Herb. He obviously thought they could be improved and wadya know, I think he was right. They are much shorter now but I prefer them. Perhaps the customers will now please buy them instead of passing them by!
Before of one and after of two!
The pale one had the shaft destroyed more or less so I added a piece of box that was going to be a candlestick!!
Its a bit galling when a cat has better design sense than the 'master' (ha! that'll be the day)
This is Herbert with two of the downstairs tenants.
