Tried to build my own out of metal spur-shelving tied on to clothing rails, looked good but then fell down at Cossie, had cheap, light-weight pine book cases, they fell down at cossie, had collapsable bookcases and yes, you got it, fell down at Cossie. I already have a few bits of tent furniture that I tried out at Delapre, they worked, didn't fall down and utilised the centre pole really well. I will be at Berkeley, so if you want to come and have a look or a chat, I'm Chapter & Verse.
