It's not that bad pottzy... JimJ doesn't have to close his eyes… Though you could have touched up that sleeper underneath with a few coats of your arm r seal before unleashing it onto the public.
Next you'll be telling us those are not plastic flowers.

Personally if the handle was defective, I would have returned the trowel to the vendor back in that 3 or 4 years ago.

Oh looks like Pottzy has been digging up some old projects too.

Everybody must be getting a little bored with the current situation..
If it gets much worse I am actually going to make something.

I think he just bought a kit and put it together? do you think its 304 or 306?

I made something similar but I didn't use wood so I cannot post it as a project

pottzy, the best garden I ever saw… while being forced into an exercise walk around the block many, many years ago… when exercise was not a dirty four lettered word to me… had an entire front yard poured in concrete , painted green (nice green) with plastic flowers (all bloody roses) set into the concrete around the perimeter…
The dog broke 3 claws trying to dig a poop hole in his lawn. The old man being an unemployed Hungarian Ferncutter, moonlighted as a dog trainer and we didn't have plastic bags and tongs to carry around back in the 60's… our doberman was toilet trained.

You seem to say that with pride pottzy... I can only assume they're decorative and not the pest type… No wonder my poor old man was unemployed.
