I made this using scrap garden edging. An old pallet would work well, too.

One of the things I like about your videos is the variety. “You never know what you’re gonna get”. Very well put together. I like the box and the techniques too. Happy BD to Kathy. :)

Oh, and now we know Steve has a soft, flowery side. Ha ha.

You are like the MacGyver of woodworking. When you look around and see what is available you can create anything. Thanks for the ideas.

Man, you must be from California where you have to make your nails look rusty. Ours in Washington state come rusty the old fashioned way. We earn our rust. Nice vid….....................
