Have made several of these Garden Dibbles, each a little different but all do the same job. It has marks every 1 inch starting from the small end. For those of you that may not know what this is used for its to plant garden seeds or bulbs. Most bulbs say plant at certain depth and this little bugger does the job. Its easy to push in the ground, plant the seed or bulb and cover. Walk away from it and wait for it to grow.
Hoping these will catch on and be able to sell some this coming spring. Really this started as a practice piece. This one is made from pine but about any wood would do.

Made a number of these myself Tom, but usually from Ash. Nice looking tool and well made.

Handy tool, Tom, especially with the inch markings. I think, however, the correct term is “Dibble”.

Sorry about the wrong spelling of the word Dibble. It seems I can’t make a change now so maybe to many want view this and see the mistake.
