Yesterday I spent four hours wandering up and down Canton Road, Shanghai Street, Reclamation Street in Jordan, Yau Ma Tei and Mongkok looking for a shop that sells wood! Okay not just any wood. I am trying to repair a broken chair. I need a new spindle. 16mm diam and a meter or two in length (for spares). In the UK it would be a quick trip to B and Q but I just cannot find any equivalent in HK. I live in the New Territories and really do not like going to HK Island so am focusing on Kowloon side. A couple of shop owners looked at my broken spindle and said "order only". I do not like to order things, I like to look and feel before purchase. Any thoughts? Thanks.
