Make tools that aren't sold in stores.  These are scrapers, scoops and mixers.

Get the last drop out of your bucket and minimize waste.  Extend the life of your favorite bucket by cleaning it instead of letting dried mortar ruin it.  Toss unused material into the trash and don't wash it into the yard where it leaves a big mess or kills the grass. Spend less time standing out in the cold hosing off buckets and mud pans.  Leave the scoops in your mud pan so it will be there whenever you decide to return... no rust!  Keep your mud free from lumps and crumbs by removing dried material from the sides of the bucket.

Make multiple tools and keep one in your paint box, one in the drywall box and one in the basement.  They are compact and FREE.  One bucket will make 6-8 tools. 

Coming soon, a paintbrush and roller cleaning tool.

Step 1: Draw Vertical Lines

Using a straight edge, draw vertical lines on your bucket.    Following the print makes it easier.
