10:10 have been encouraging everyone to re-make and fix things up, rather than dumping things when they get broken or are no longer needed.  Being a bit of a squirrel myself, I like this challenge a lot!

My Jubilee Weekend Project was to fix up a snooker table with JW.  We saved it from the jaws of a skip and turned it from this:

My final recent re-make was to turn this:

 Into this: An Apple Tree for my Dad on Father's Day.

 Go on, what can you re-make this month!
