I like the tools...

Tiny garden project for D involved running some 13mm pipe for irrigation from the right side to the left side.

Keeping it vaguely neat meant running it under the seat thingo. Small problem: Seat thingo has no place to bring pipe out.

Solution: Using 16mm 3-way wod drill bit I just happened to have lying around.. Oh, and the new cordless drill.

Drill bit is very neat: The pitch means that it seriously bites into wood: No pressure at all involved, it pulls itself forward. And the 3-way thing means that it doesn't get clogged doing it. (Just as well, it's pretty much impossible to reduce the rate at which it drills using a hand drill!)

End result is a nice neat hole through a 60mm chunk of pine, with pipe run and water flowing into pots on demand.

Yay tools!
