Introduction: Seed Spacing Stick
looking for a quick way to space your plants to start your garden try making this.
Plants need good spacing most the plants need ether 3 inch of 12 inch or something in between. So i made a stick that will allow you to lay it in the garden and it will mark the places where you should plant.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- 2 3/4 X 48" round dowel rod
- 1 2X2 by 8' or 2x4 by 8
- drill press or drill
- 3/4 drill bit
- measuring tape
Step 2: Marking
first take the 2x2 and mark it on one side every 3 inches. then flip in over and mark every 12 inches. as well as mark your dowel every 2 inches.
Step 3: Cutting and Drilling
cut the dowel in 2" sections
next drill 1" deep where you marked on the 2x2 using the 3/4" drill bit. then flip over and drill every 12" but only drill 1/2" down. the other option is to drill all the way through but you will need seven 4" dowels.
Step 4: Setting the Pegs
you dont need to use any glue just use friction just hammer in every piece of dowel. once you have hammered all the dowels your done
Step 5: Finished
Using is very easy just press in ground and lift straight up and ta da perfectly spaced holes and rows.
