Pine Cone Picker Upper

I noticed this year that my wife Teresa was having a little more trouble bending over to complete the spring pine cone cleanup around our place. Being a very helpful fellow, I went right out to my shop to make something to help her, says Paul Tierney, Bloomington, Minn.


   I welded up a dustpan-shaped box out of sheet metal. I secured it to a broken shovel handle so its nice and light. She can now push cones into the pan with her foot and dump them into a bucket, all without bending.


   She loved it and had the yard cleaned up in no time.
