NOTE: I HIGHLY recommend wearing protective glasses while cutting because. First, draw a straight line across the mouth(?).
Into the mouth at the halfway point you marked earlier. NOTE: I didn't bother drawing a line along the length of the mouth because I let it rest on the teeth while I drilled (see picture 2).
Get a fairly fine sand paper and sand down the edges of each piece so that they look nice and feel nice. I used 220 grit sandpaper which is probably too fine for what I needed but make sure not to use anything to grainy, or it will leave visible scratches in your wood.
Get some newspaper or aluminum foil that will keep your floor (or table) clean. Make a small puddle of wood glue, dip each tooth into the glue, and then jam it in one of the teeth holes.
Have a damp paper towel or rag on hand to wipe up any extra glue that squeezes out. Repeat with the handle and then wait for a while (maybe prepare your Garden or Ashtray).
Also, I'll put up photos of what I do with my rakes shortly. If you’ve been tinkering with the idea of your own Zen, sand or rock garden, the end of summer is the perfect time to transition.
This is your space for meditation, whether it’s simply contemplating and reflecting on the day or a place to get creative and write, sketch or paint. You can pepper in comfortable outdoor seating, turning your Zen space into a peaceful social area.
Historically, Zen gardens are created with sand, and intricate rake patterns are brushed into them daily. Some Zen gardens have water features, sculpted shrubs or trees, reeds or tall grass plants.
Product Description This simple miniature Zengardenrake is roughly 5" long and was created at the request of a friend. We're sorry to inform you that we no longer support this browser and can't confirm that everything will work as expected.
He is a fine woodworker and makes this Garden as a really neat gift. 1/4” in from one edge cut a 3/16” deep 1/8” wide groove to fit the plywood.
Assemble it using glue on the miter joints and small finishing nails. Drill four 1/8” hole in a row, evenly spaced, in the 3/8” dowel.

However, if you are out of Calgon bath beads and the balance in your checkbook rules out a day spa, a clever alternative will have to do. This miniature meditation garden will do the trick. The idea is to focus on creating balance and harmony with the use of a small rake, sand and rocks.
Gather several rocks in diagonal corners, or use seashells and starfish for a beach theme. Paint and decorate a tray, fill with sand, rocks and perhaps a pagoda, and rake to your heart's content.
1 wood serving tray (9 1/2 by 13 inches) patina paint set stencil brush Asian-inspired coins or accessories hot glue 2 strings of gold-tone beads 3 pounds of craft sand 1 Asian-inspired focal point 3 rocks small rake or miniature back-scratcher Directions: Stipple the tray with layers of patina paints, using the stencil brush, and let dry.
Here, a unique combination of rocks, water, sand, paths, stepping stones and plants is used to craft a setting that conveys absolute serenity. A few plants add more foliage and textures, and within a small space, the scene of a great island is created, with the pebbles representing the sea.
Interesting fact: These gardens traditionally featured in Zen temples from the 14th century in Japan, representing the essence of nature and aiding in meditation. Such simple symbolism of land and water creates a beautiful harmony of textures that have a spiritual meaning as well.
These raking patterns are believed to add an element of tranquility and can be changed often, according to the mood of the user. In this small Zen garden, among simple plants, sits a Buddha with both hands in a meditative pose.
By just placing some large decorative stone pots among a sea of smooth pebbles, you can create a visual Zen garden that you need not step into. Design ideas If you have a slightly larger space, it is possible to introduce actual water, instead of the sand symbolism, to add another texture to the Zen garden.
As seen here, all the essential elements, along with a water body which functions as a lap pool, make this a relaxing modern-day Zen space. Using larger plants (pictured here are some lovely Chinese fan palms or Division Chinese) and a gray ground cover instead of pebbles is a modern take on the traditional Zen garden.
