Against the grain

Do you know anyone who wants a dismantled wardrobe, partly sawn in half, no fittings, buyer collects?
'Cos I don't want it.
The wood is unworkable. Even my electric saw wouldn't cut through it. And it's as heavy as lead. I can't use it.
And to think, instead of wrestling with this intractable material, I could have been down the fen checking for Dotterel, Hoopoe and Glossy Ibis.
So, tomorrow, I'm off to the timber merchant to get proper 12mm marine ply. It will cost un bras et une jambe, but as I always say, you can solve most problems by throwing money at them.
