How to Make Garden Stakes
Add some character and organization to your garden by creating these custom garden stakes!
Step By Step Instructions
Cut the wood to your desired shape
First, cut the stakes to desired length and shape with your Saw-Max™. Then, using your Dremel Multi-Max™, sand the edges to get a clean smooth appearance.
Coat the garden stakes
Next, finish your stakes as desired. We stained ours and applied a coat of varnish to seal and protect them.
Make metal plaques for your garden stakes
Next, using the Dremel 200 cut sheet metal plaques with EZ409 EZ Lock™ 1-1/2" Thin Cut, Cut-off Wheels. Grind sharp edges smooth with the 932 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone and drill holes at each corner using the 631-01 Brad Point Drill Bit Set.
Engrave the plaques
Finally, attach the plaques to your stakes using brads or small finish nails and etch your desired names with Dremel 200 and 113 Engraving Cutter.
