Garden Tools

The name, "Garden Tools" covers a wide range of handy implements that someone might use in their gardening. We have seen dibbles, garden shovels and garden forks. We're hoping that others might also share projects that fit into this category.

 

Turn a Pot-Maker for the Gardener in your FamilyTurn a Pot-Maker for the Gardener in your Family
By: Andy Kuby
With the beginning of gardening season at hand, getting a head start on your seedlings should be a priority. Here’s a time-tested appliance that makes seedling pots from ordinary newspaper.  You could buy one on Amazon, but why not be ecologically responsible and make one yourself from the recycled wood in the back of your shop?

By: Alan Sturgess
In this short project, Alan gives us the dimensions and short description on how to make a paper seed pot for use in germinating and growing seeds for the garden. This is a very useful tutorial as these paper seed pots can go directly into the garden and are basically free. This would make a wonderful gift for any of your gardening friends!

 

Ant Barrier - Green Turning with Recycled PlasticsAnt Barrier - Green Turning with Recycled Plastics
By: James Duxbury
In this photo tutorial, Jim shows us how he uses a recycled plastic billet to turn an ant barrier to his hummingbird feeder.

Jim tells us all the issues with turning this type of plastic while showing us how to make this project. Even though this plastic is not a lot of fun to turn, it's really useful to projects outdoors!

 

Turn a PotTurn a Pot
By: Jim Duxbury
Many gardeners use seeds to start their gardens each year. Many will grow these seeds indoors in the early spring in order to have full sized plants ready for the garden season.

In this photo tutorial, Jim shows us how to turn a garden tool which is comprised of two pieces; a pot form and a pot press. This tool allows any gardener to make their own seed starting pots from newspaper. The process to make the pots is fully described and is quick and easy to do. In fact, anyone can do it! And the turning is fast and easy too!

Not only is this a great idea, but the pot is biodegradable so it's good for the environment!

By: Dennis Daudelin
In this project tutorial, Dennis Daudelin shows us how to make a nice set of Garden Tools. He uses the Mike Hunter set of Garden Shovel and Garden Fork which comes with a brass ferrule.

Dennis uses an olivewood spindle and turns a handle for each of these stainless steel tools. There is an easy-to-understand photo for each step in the process so it's easy for even beginners to follow.

These Garden Tools are available from Mike Hunter. You can find them here:

Turning a DibbleTurning a Dibble
By: Tom Hintz
A Dibble (also called a Dibbler) is a simple tool used by gardeners to create holes in soil for planting seeds and small plants. The base design includes a ball-shaped handle, a flare and a taper with a series of 6 markings at 1" intervals that serve as a depth gauge. Modifying the Dibble with your own ideas or to fit your favorite gardeners needs is simple.

Dust Right® Dust Separator

On Sale for only $59.99

Save $40.00

List Price: $99.99

Turn any shop vacuum with a 2-1/4'' ID outlet into a 2-stage dust and chip separator. When used with most power tools and shop vacuums, the Dust Right® Separator captures sawdust, wood chips, and other debris before it enters your vacuum, preventing the loss of suction power caused by a clogged vacuum filter. The five-caster base makes it exceptionally stable and easy to maneuver around the shop. Plus, hoses connect inside the in/out ports, preventing unintentional disconnections. The Dust Right® Separator creates a cyclonic air flow that causes most wood dust particles and other materials that are heavier than air to separate, preventing them from being passed to the vacuum. The vortex effect that is created prevents the loss of suction caused by prematurely clogged filters

Micro Dust Air Filtration System

On Sale for only $599.99

Save $100.00

List Price: $699.99

The PM1250 Air Filtration System employs an electrostatic filter that attracts and removes particles as small as 0.1 micron in size. It cycles the air in a 680 square foot space—the equivalent of an oversized 2-car garage—up to five times in a single hour. When set at the lowest setting, the system is about as quiet as a library, and when on high, it's quieter than normal conversation. Unlike most other air filtration systems, the PM1250 is portable and freestanding, meaning you can carry it to wherever filtration is most needed, then simply set it on the floor or the bench. The angle is adjustable using the knobs on the side of the unit. If you like, it can also be mounted to the wall or ceiling.
