With the warm summer days we purchased some ice lollies from Tesco called Helter-skelters (£1 for 5), and these lollies unusually had what appeared to be dowel rods for the sticks.
So after consumption and a quick wipe down I put them to use.
I have a few ideas but the first is a telephone pole
I measured out 45mm, marked it on the rod and using a "junior hacksaw" I cut it off.
I then used my glue gun, sticking the 45mm piece on top. I then glued the long piece down to a small piece of MDF (in this case a flames of war command base).
There you have it, one telephone pole.
