This outdoor screen was built using cedar, but you could use any exterior grade lumber for this project. You can also modify the size depending on what you wish to hide. So pretty. Follow the free woodworking tutorial at the link.
Planting bulbs, setting out tomatoes, peppers and other vegetable or bedding plants is usually best done kneeling, but an hour or two spent kneeling can be painful to the knees. A soft foam kneeling pad can prevent many problems. The kneeling tray shown not only keeps the foam pad in place and off the garden soil, but also has storage space for trowels and other tools, along with space for holding plants or bulbs. Scroll down at the link to fine the project.
Two layers of slats maintain ventilation while obscuring the view from wandering eyes. Build this project from stock materials and mount it to an existing concrete shower area in an attractive design that will not test your comfort level.
A weed whackers is one of those tools that is always in the way because they are hard to store. You can not stand them up very well and when you lay them down you always trip over them. This simple little stand is easy to build and solves the storage problem once and for all.
Grow lights can be used to help start seeds or to grow plants indoors. The lights are available as kits, with a bulb and fixture sold at local garden supply stores. You can easily build a frame to hold the light bulb kit in place.
Since it is time to start planting, it is a good time to identify those plants for later. It is always frustrating when showing someone your garden and not being able to tell them what the plants are. This project will solve that problem and make your garden look nice.
It seems like space is always a problem when planting a garden. Well how about going vertical? This nifty strawberry planter does just that. This project requires a compound miter saw because of some of the compound angles you will have to cut.
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a solar kiln. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. We do not provide support for this software. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided.
Construction only takes a few tools. A tablesaw, drill, handsaw and router are all you need, although a jigsaw would come in handy too. For lumber, I used the fence-grade cedar you can find in any home-improvement centre.
