Made this from 100mm PVC pipe and end cap,plastic handled aluminium trowel,aluminium rivets and 12mm spade bit.The 45 degree angle gives enough edge to dig in the sand,then just sift the mound once the target is out.Works a treat and will do until I can afford to buy a long handled stainless steel scoop.(my son already has his eye on it.)Also can double as a beer/wine bottle carrier.

Nice job. I would like a long handled stainless or aluminium scoop myself. The old catholic knees are playing up now

Cabwoody - Great work - haha how much would it cost me for you to build me one? Ever thought about making them and selling them on Ebay? Question, how did you bend the trowel around so perfectly? wink
