Now this looks better. After my post late last night I realised that something was amiss with my pineapple block. What had I done - I had followed the instructions to the T - what had I missed.
So this morning I arrived at work on a mission to discover what had happened. So through the instructions again - tick, tick, tick - it turned out to be something simple that the ruler instruction sheet doesn't mention. "A trick for young players" a friend of mine would say.
So here is my Pineapple block looking the way it should.
