Inspired by Dave (mr intruders) washing machine shed window, I decided to salvage some bits from our broken washer rather than just binning it.

I have some nuts & bolts, miles of wire, a round shed window (got to make the shed yet) and a stainless drum.

I decided to make the drum into a workshop stool. It's the perfect height for working on the bike, and can be used as storage too.

And it's a bit tragic but I've made a little how to video, link below.
