Dig into your gardening in comfort and style with our high-quality gardening hardware kits. Just turn a set of handles from the wood species of your choice for tools that fit your hands and please your eyes. The edges of the trowels are beveled for easy digging, while sturdy welds and robust ferrules ensure a long life. All three gardening tools are made from durable hardened steel with a matte stone-washed black oxide finish. We recommend 6'' long handles, but you are free to make them longer for comfort and additional leverage.

Features:

  • Turn the handle from the material of your choice to create a set of custom gardening tools
  • Trowel has a curved 2-3/4'' wide blade—ideal for general digging and planting, and rooting out difficult weeds
  • Transplanter has a tightly curved 2'' wide blade, with markings up to 4'' (and 10cm) for transplanting to precise depths
  • Hand cultivator is ideal for loosening soil, raking in compost and fertilizer and removing weeds
  • Made from durable hardened steel with a matte stone-washed black oxide finish
  • Minimum blank size: 1-1/2'' x 1-1/2'' x 6'' (a longer blank may be used if desired)
  • Use a 21/64'' drill bit for the shank; epoxy is recommended for securing the shank in the handle

Great quality
These tools are the heaviest construction gardening tools I have ever seen. I only wish they had been made in the USA instead of China.

Great for a gift project
the garden tools would make a great gift to give someone after you make the handles, but I keep them for myself. the only thing to make them better is to make the farrell groove deeper so the handle won't split out, other than that they are great.

Nice Tools
These are nice tools that make great gifts for family and friends. I live in west Texas so I made the handles from mesquite. It's kind of dusty when sanding. but turns ok and has no pith.
Nice quality tools that make great family gifts.  These handles are made from West Texas mesquite.

Garden tool set.
The Turning kit was a bit expensive even though it was on sale. Other than that, was a great set. I finished the three tools and gave them as a gift. The recipient said they were too nice to use and felt more like they should just be put on display. Appear to be very well made and came out looking great I did have a small issue with what size to drill the hole for the handles I bought the required that which turned out to only fit one of the tools. The other two required a smaller bed. Had two different size shanks. I contacted Rockler on this and they apologized and are sending me a $20 gift card..

Expensive if used for retail
I haven’t purchased the kit yet because of its cost, so I can’t speak for it’s quality, but at $50 this can only be used to make gifts or sell to rich people... In order to make any profit one would have to sell a kit for $100+ depending on how and where it’s being sold. Not realistic for a product that can’t cost much to make.

So that I can use them in my garden, they look nicer than what you buy finished in stores and the handles can be whatever you want.

Is there a bushing or specific chuck for this kit?
Chad O on Apr 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Each tool requires a 21/64" hole in the handle. It is suggested that the handles be secured with epoxy.
