Just a fun project.
I got (yes again) a pallet from my neighbors.
And I allways lose my stuff in the garden.
So i thought lets make a tray.
And here it is…...

That is a good idea for cut flowers too. Especially roses.

Wonderful idea. Have you posted that on our sister site, Garden Tenders. I’m sure many would appreciate it there too. My wife and I are on that site at http://gardentenders.com/members/hjt

Another great one. I wonder if a category for projects made from recycled wood would be in order. Reclaimed wood has a real future in today’s world. I started using overseas shipping crates about 25 years ago. Some of them were solid Mahogany with 4 X 4’s and 2 X 4’s in the base and the plywood was beautiful clear mahogany on the inside. The outside had fork lift damage and paint but that didn’t affect the inside.

Good looking tray. I could use several of these around the house for keeping things together and toting them around the house.

My wife could do with one of these. She does the gardening. How do you find the angles, Houtje?
