Very nice storage solution, too.

I like the metal handles - I've had my tools outside for so long that the wooden handles had become stained and blackened. Not too appetizing...

Had to clean them with a scrubber pad and bleach. It's already time to do them again!!!

I presume the pooper scooper was brand new?

No one would know unless you tell them... your tools look great!

In fact I may try the pooper scooper idea. Brilliant!

I dig the tool rack. I'm totally stealing that idea & design.

Love those tools and just wish I had any welding skills - yours look fine to me!

Les-

Where'd you find that brush head, Home Depot?
I'm going to make one tonight. Though I can't weld, so I'll have to bolt on a handle.

It was online, I don't recall where but I can find out for you tonight. Also, it is bolted on. The welding I had to do was for the shovel - it needed a 90 degree bend.

A chocolate lab - she was 90 pounds but we had to put her on a diet, now she weighs about 75. Didn't seem to change the size of the poop though.

Got the acrylic stucco on today. That's another nasty job - It's like working with sand that is soaked in paint, clean up is a bitch (still more to do when it dry's). I also got the first course of common brick down with the re-bar to solidify the walls. As much as I hate to do it, I think I will hit it again with the stucco - try and get a more uniform finish.
