Mensagem:  if you imagine a whole lot of planks of wood arranged so they are placed one after the other lengthways

imagine the hyphens (-) are the planks - they would be arranged like this: - - - - etc (without the spaces in between)

so the "end" refers to the top or bottom of the plank

and "end to end" means abutting lengthwise in this way
