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.

One man, One pan, One goal!
great job looks professional you have inspired me to make my own sand scoop. rather then buying one.
After looking thru many stores this afternoon I can see this is the way to go - thanks - great job
Awesome scoop cabwoody.
Better than store bought.
Reckon I might have a go at knocken out one of these to.
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?
Looks very well made :-) I made a similar but long handled one last weekend, better update my thread.
