Splinter free garden tools


As we are moving into spring, gardens are calling. Weekends will be busy with householders working in gardens and yards to pretty them up for spring and summer. And they'll be bringing out their rakes and shovels and hoes. Chances are those garden tools have wooden handles that will have dried out over the winter, causing them to splinter.

You can easily repair a splintered handle by sanding out the splinter and then rubbing the handle with linseed oil to seal the wood. Do this at the beginning of every spring and the handles of your garden tools will stay in tip top condition and splinters will become a distant memory.
