Bloody hell. 70 quid for some sapele wood. 60 quid for someone to turn it into a pair of boat grabrails.Always get pissed before during and after any DIY. It's your time, your house you deserve a refreshing tipple or twenty. It also inspires your DIY, sledging out that wall sounds a brilliant idea when you're pissed.
I misdrilled one of the holes.
Salvageable, but I was ready to turn the drill on myself.
