Alright so today on Repairs101 I�m going
to show you how I made this handy garden tool organizer out of a couple of boards and a
handful of screws. So I decided enough was enough and that I
wasn�t going to store my garden tools in a garbage pail anymore. I still had a couple
of salvage boards left and I cut some triangle braces out of scraps. Then I measured and
marked to fit the gussets. Use your speed square to draw parallel lines
quickly. Next I found the points on that line to drill my holes.
You know, I chose to use the hole saw and table saw for this project because they make
clean and uniform cuts. You can do all the cutting for this project
with a hand saw and a coping saw or with a jigsaw.
Normally I would use a more sophisticated joint like a dado or a mitre joint but for
this I thought a simple butt joint clamped with glue and screws was exactly what we needed.
Clean up carpenter�s glue before it cures with a clean damp cloth.
Then I glued in all the gussets and drew them together using the woodscrews.
Always drill out holes before you drive in screws, otherwise you end up with pieces that
won�t mate together, split wood and broken screws.
You see I put most of the evidence it�s salvaged wood here on the back where no one
will ever see it. Alright, thanks for watching and don�t forget
