A sheet of laminate also makes a handy kneeler for working outside!


Only if you don't like your knees, I prefer something a bit softer
I went to the one in Sprowston yesterday. I guess everything including poor deals had gone as it was mostly normal price.
There was a small procession of us walking round trying to find something.
One bloke was looking for the lid to a plastic box.

Almost post apocalyptic.

Of absolutely no use to me personally, but a great find! Heat added! 🔥
I wish there was a Homebase near me
This is my local Homebase, might have a look
Great but surely there won’t be enough of one type to make a flood in a room!

Preston will be awash with people looking for that 3rd short plank.
Great find. Might not be enough to make a floor but am sure there are a few on here with some woodworking skills who could make something from it.
Burn in my logburner

Dolls house flooring if cut in fine strips...

Not a great idea if laminate. The glues will proper mess up your chimney.
I saw some at the Oldbury store. It wasn't flooring, looked more like the side panels of wardrobes/cupboards. A lot bigger than this but probably not as strong. But hey, it's free.

I'd imagine quite toxic too

If you just want to do a toilet, or a small utility room perhaps. 2 or 3 matching bits and you are there.

I wouldn't. Should only use untreated wood. In any case, it will burn so quickly that it's hardly worth the effort and cost of going to get it for this purpose.

There won’t be one near anybody in 2 years time so don’t worry
op was for "wood" flooring not laminate

I wont burn laminate, mdf, ply, chipboard as they are all full of glue and plastic

Only burn MDF if you want cancer, it's made using Formaldehyde! Also the laminate is also a glue and toxic 😷😷😷
Given what it says on the sign, you could throw the wood out and take the two nice black crates?
If it’s solid wood - oak maybe sounds decent. Though looking at the photo it’s laminate and possibly offered up outside?
Was there about an hour ago to pick up a couple of the £1 spot-lights. Those two hoppers in the picture were empty.
Have also seen this is the Newcastle Under lyme store.
Is it all stores

The proper name for those black "crates" is manufacturing units or mu's for short!
