    Leatherman MUT – Pruning in the Garden

    Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

    A task that had needed to be done for a while now was to prune the lower limbs from a small pine tree in my garden. Over that last year or so the lower branches seem to have dried up quite alot. Having had experience of a similar bush being set on fire in my garden I did not what this one to go the same way whether it was deliberate or not. I decided to use the saw blade of my Leatherman MUT EOD to show the versatility of the tool. As I though the Leatherman MUT performed great and given the size of the branches which were no thicker than 1.5 inch it proved more than capable. Clearly larger saws perform this task of pruning better but it goes to show that multi-tools and in particular Leatherman’s are a great addition to even a gardeners tool kit.

        How to build a Garden Tool Storage Bin for under $20 Holds 18 tools! Save Money and Room!

        Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

        Dad came up with a pretty good idea for storing all the garden tools he had floating around in his garage. First he purchased a used (empty) 50 gallon barrel from a local food processor for around . the barrel’s top is permanently sealed, but it has two large threaded holes in it. He cleaned out the residue from the original contents (molassas) using hot water and some dish soap. Using a 2 1/8″ hole saw, he drilled 14 more holes into the top (in addition to the two holes already in it) giving the top of the barrel a total of 16 useable holes. By pouring four gallons of 1.5″- round river rock through the 18 holes he gives the barrel enough weight and stability so that it won’t tip over with the tools in it, but still be easy to move around the garage. The only thing I didn’t show in the video was that I would drill some small drainage holes in the bottom of the barrel if I was going to store it outside. (This is why you want to use round river rock as it will not compact (like crushed rock) and will allow water drainage through the rock.) As long as the holes in the bottom of the barrel are smaller than the round rock it would allow water to drain, but not let the rocks fall out the bottom. Dad’s storing his tools inside so no need to drill drainage holes.
