I used a hack saw, tin snips, a file, pliers and a hammer to make this shovel.
1 piece of 1.25" dia. galvanized fence pipe.
Maybe some duct tape for comfort.
Step 1: Mark and Cut Pipe
For the cross cut, don't go too far into the pipe or you'll lose strength in the tool.
Step 2: Bend and Shape
Mark a "V" shape on the blade and cut however possible, I used tin snips.
