Due to the inclement weather, I'm going to lock myself away in my shed for a few days and try to make a crab, come lobster pot.
This idea was fueled by last nights Edwardian Farm programme, but instead of using natural products in the construction, I'll be using plastic pipe.
Dependant on the result of my labours, the word 'not' might very well be inserted into the title of 'How to make a Crab Pot'
I'll take step by step photos of procedings, a little like the bomb disposal people, so that at least you'll be able to see where I go wrong.
