One Man’s Trash

Well, they say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

bent_gazebo_frameI saw this gazebo frame sticking out of a bin in front of a hire place up the street from work,

so asked if I could have it.  I’m guessing it got trashed in the recent strong winds.






10 minutes later we have some raw materials for a future Halloween prop.

CAT6 Catastrophe

I had 151m of CAT6 cable left on a old reel, but the reel itself had broken.  Luckily the cable was still formed in a coil shape.


cat6_unrolledI managed to carefully unroll it by attaching one end to the street light pole

outside our house and walking down to the corner of the neighbours with it.

I did this 3 times to get 3 pieces of approx 50m length each.

My neighbour did come out to ask what I was doing !










I had to untwist some of the excess curls from it.

So, 20 minutes later I have 3 nice rolls of CAT6 cable.

Cable saved to be used another day  🙂
