yes its amazing what you end up with after a night on the beer (it was about 12ft long and i dont remember how it got there lol)

Ha ha etc. - that's a quality-steal.

Dear Andybuda, Not much imagination here but I think that they would make good, outdoor plant pots, especially with blue flowers to contrast the yellow. Or maybe floorlamp uplighters, in the corner with the high part facing outwards to shield the bulb. FOH (I'm not sure why but the editor keeps removing all the spaces from my answers; maybe it worked ok this time.)

like what you did with the flowers, dont think i will keep them yellow though thanks for your suggestions though, when the two spirals are put together it does give a nice slice through the tubes so might keep them apart by an inch and put a light inside and carpet or paint ... still undecided iv got a load of leds so could make teeth sort of thing in the spiral gap

Click on "Rich Editor" when you post and it'll let you format. Otherwise the plain editor just tosses everything away.
OK, thank you.

Just out of interest , why would any one use plain editor ?,( I have not encountered these terms before ; I googled and it seemed to me to suggest programming?)
I've heard that

It's either a bug.

Or,

They are trying something new because the rich editor loads slowly on some systems.

Hang them upside down as light fixtures.

Graft them to longer tubes of different lengths and paint to match your decor and use them as sculpture.

Put a padded bottom in them as arty chairs.

Planters for the patio/

Recycle them.
