simple idea, ideal for the job, yet overlooked, isnt that often the way,

many hundreds of years ago the exact same technique had been lost with another packaging material, it was rediscovered when shop windows needed to be bigger, that package was glass, a large bottle, melted and split in this way could form the best window glass available

all it needs is to just take a slightly sideways look at everyday items to see what great uses they could be put to. During my studies i came across a use for old cans in africa - people solder them together to build walls! fill em with sand and they are solid.

maybe we should all think a bit laterally more often

Great idea  :D
I've got a few made in the garage for the village nature reserve and might just give it a go..
I've made a couple of bat boxes which are made from a pallet free from the local garden centre, they were happy for me to take a pallet and said any time I want more just ask
