What a fancy hose guide!

A pagoda-like shape adds a bit of glamour to this practical garden helper. It's a hose guide to station in any of those critical corners in a garden where hoses frequently drag across a flower bed.

To make one like this, you'll need to use a radial-arm or table saw and a set of dado blades. Starting with a 2-foot length of redwood 4 by 4, mark points 3, 4-3/4, 6-1/2, and 8-1/4 inches from one end. Make 3/4-inch-wide, 1/2-inch-deep dado cuts at these points on all four sides of the board. Below these four cuts, use dado blades to trim off excess wood for slender base. Sand rough edges lightly. Complete the guide by trimming the top with a standard saw blade set at a 45[deg.] angle.
