We are off to the beaches of Norfolk soon with my our three granddaughters and as I want them to get them involved with metal detecting, I have already bought them an ABS plastic trowel each and a pinpointer for each of them is on order.
So a round trip of 60 miles to IKEA and I bought two 18cm high cutlery drainers and a 13.5cm one.
The plan is to put a heavily painted cast iron handle on the larger ones so they would be similar in design to an old style pub pint mug and a 30cm aluminium tube covered in heat shrink tubing fixed at right angles onto the smaller one.
Many thanks for the inspiration and well done for the concept.
