How To: Build a garden tool shed

Build a garden tool shed

he age-old "shtick" about a rake handle smacking you in the face when you step on the teeth isn't funny. It's happened to me more than once. One of the problems is improperly storing rakes, hoes, shovels and other long-handled tools. They can be hung up in a garage or garden shed, but usually end up right at the door, where they fall down, and again become a dangerous problem. The garden tool shed shown solves the problem of long-handled tool storage and at the same time provides a separate storage area attached to a garage or garden shed with tools at hand. This shed could also hold trash cans. Adding shelves in one side can provide a place for storing fertilizers and chemicals. The shed shown doesn't have a back, but a back could be installed to make the shed free-standing if desired. However, it would be susceptible to toppling over very easily, so it should be "staked" or fastened in place in some manner. For more, or to get started building your own garden tool shed, watch this how-to.

I like the project but the instructions are paced for wigged-out-tweakers... tone down the pace a little especially for projects requiring major assembling.
