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 Tips:



Primula Love Cool Weather

There are many varieties of Primula and they all love cooler temperatures and shade to partial shade areas.

The top three favorites are English Primrose (Primula Polyanthus), Fairy Primrose (P.malacoides), and P.obconica.

They make great woodland plants, bedding or edging plants, and container plants.

They are perennials, and when planted in the correct spot, will last for years.
