Friday Favorite: My New Tool Holder

October 6th, 2017

I don’t know when I first saw a tool holder made from D handle tools. We have Liberty Tool right in town, I stop frequently to check their stock of old garden tools. When I stopped Wednesday they had just what I needed, two D-handle shovels.

This project couldn’t be quicker or easier (or cheaper for only $10). My cross piece is an old broken shovel handle. Now I have a convenient spot to keep all my garden tools during the gardening season.

How do you keep your tools organized?

    We keep all of our long handles tools, rakes, shovels, brooms, etc. in an old wine barrel…handle in first so we can easily see which tool we need. Smaller tools with two handles such as loppers get hung on the side of it. The smallest tools, hand pruners, trowels, etc. are kept in an old basket with a handle that can be easily transported around the garden and just picked up at the end of the day and put back on the garden bench out of the weather. :)

    Susy, ha, no organization with tools here. I always have the intention to organize them but it hasn’t happened just yet. As they say in Texas, “I’m fixin’ to do that some day.”

    Have a great organized day.
