How to Make Wooden Garden Flag Holder
If you want to make your own wooden holder of the garden flags to stand up, then you may find that you need some valuable ideas to make it. Just by following instructions, you can make your own wooden flag holder. First of all, you brush water sealant or wood stain on the cedar planks and rod until it completely dry before making the stand in order to make the wood have more longevity since cedar does not weather proof which also means that it can be damaged by harsh conditions of weathers. Drill a hole through the plank completely after you measure it an inch in from one of the planks’ end and do the drill in the same manner to the other cedar plank. Apply generously a craft or wood glue onto the dowel rod end and then you insert the glued end into a plank through the drilled hole. Well, maybe you will need to do fidgeting so that it fits and it will be snug once it already fit, then you can let it dry by time.
You can simply hammer the plank where you want it to be in your garden and if your garden has hard soil, then you will need to use a utility knife so that you can whittle the plank’s bottom until it is sharp enough for easy inserting into the soil, eight inches will be sufficient. After one of the plank well inserted into the soil, then you can place the other one beside the first one with the needed distance. You can use the rod free tip to be inserted which has already coated in glue at first into the second plank hole to form the flag stand.
