With really strong braces and some tartan paint you could make a spare kilt.

I noticed no one suggested a means of transport down the Niagra ala the turn of the 19th/20th century. :P

Brilliant Photo's everyone. Some fantastic ideas and some hilarious ones. I know of one guy who was one of the Powers Whiskey family who made the floor for his house out of staves of used Power casks. I've never seen it but apparently it's in a herringbone pattern!
