Ok, so it’s not entirely made of wood, but I thought this may be helpful to some others. I try to do as little sweeping(with a broom) in my shop as possible bc it stirs up so much dust. I normally pick up all the large stuff and use my shop vac to sweep the rest of the floor. The other day I was thinking how nice it would be to have a dust pan with a handle, but I have never seen them in a store, and figured they would be expensive so I thought I would try to make one someday. While at the dollar store I came across the dust pans, picked this up for a couple bucks, cut the handle off and attatched a dowel. I then took my wood burning tool and smoothed all the cut plastic b/c I am retarded and OCD and KNOW no one will look at the cut and think it should be smoothed…but it makes me feel better. The handle swivels freely, but is also thight enough it will stay folded up when needed. I have since taken it apart to stain it and put some finish on it…b/c I am OCD.
