free plans: how to make a
Miniature Dry Garden
||Here is a free plan for a miniature version of the traditional dry rock garden. These gardens
have been perfected over the centuries as centers of quiet reflection. In keeping with the
simple elegance of these gardens, we show you how to make
the entire project, including the rake, out of a single piece of wood. These make perfect gifts
or stress-relieving aids.
||Wood for project itself and router template, double-sided tape, finishing oil. A complete
material list is provided below.
||Table saw, plunge-type router with dish-cutting bit, bandsaw, sandpaper, clamps (if you are surfacing rough lumber, you will also need
a jointer and a thickness planer).
A complete tool list is provided below.
||The plan itself is free! Estimated cost of materials: $2
