Showcase cover image for Veggie Hod Mother's day gift

Project Information

This is not fine woodworking but it was a fun project. I didn't know what a Veggie Hod was until a year ago and basically it's a outdoor colander and basket. You pick your vegetables and you can rinse them off in the basket outside with the garden hose. One is for my wife and the other is for a friend who told me about these. Used a lot of scrap cedar and some 1/2" wire. You can find plans online but mine are 20 1/4" Length, 11 1/2" Width, 9 1/4" Deep, 16 1/4" Tall and used a 1 1/4" dowel. In my opinion I made them slightly too big and heavy. Trim the depth a inch and maybe the dowel to 1" if you're making them for your wives. The hard part is cutting and shaping the wire to the basket. Thanks for taken a look.

Thanks Jim and Mel. They were pretty easy to make but they're probably not as good as a fish basket. HaHa
