Back to How To....    |   How to Build a Garden Tool Tote



This tool tote is just the right size to carry tools out to the garden or flower bed.  It is easy to build and doesn’t take a lot of wood.

You will need the following wood:

2 ends 1” X 7 1/4 “ X 10” wide

2 sides 1” X 14 1/2 X 5 1/2 wide

1 bottom 1” X 14 1/2 X 5 3/4 wide

1 hands 1” X 2” X 16”


Next, take the two end boards.  The top of the board should be 10 inches in size.  The sides of the board should be 5 inches in size.  The bottom should be 7 1/4 inches in size.  Draw a pleasing curve from the top to the side of each board piece. 

Now, cut out the ends.

Now make a mortise and tenon on the top of the ends and with the piece of 1X2X16.  Do not close the joint just yet, however.

Put both ends on one side.

Next, insert the bottom and nail it to the ends and side.

Put the last side on the assembly.  It should fit tightly and may need a little encouragement to fit.

Now insert the handle in the mortises.  Your project is not ready for staining or to go straight to the garden.

Gardening-tip:

Check Light Availability

Most shrubs can grow in both sun and shade to varying degrees.

Many flowering shrubs, however, tend to need some sun to flower.

Be sure to double check the amount of light you have available to the shrubs you are planning to plant so you are happy with the outcome.
