Tomato Support

Material List

Item Qty. Description
#1 varies Wood. You can make this entire project out of one type of wood. We used some 1" x 2" (20 x 40mm) spruce. The height of the vertical stakes should be about 6' (2m); this includes the portion that will be pounded into the ground. The verticals are spaced about 3' (1m) apart and there should be at least three horizontals between each of them. So if you are making three verticals (good for two to three tomato plants, you will need three pieces of 6' (2m) and 6 pieces of 3' (1m) lengths.
#2 - Drywall screws or other self tapping screws.

Tool List

Handsaw or jigsaw.
Hand drill.
Clearance drill bit for screws (the bit should be slightly wider than the threads on the screw).
Drive bit for screws (recommended) or screwdriver
