How to build a hose holder

This diy step by step diy project is about how to build a hose holder stand plans. If you want to learn more about building a beautiful hose holder stand, pay attention to the detailed instructions shown in this tutorial. This project is ideal for any garden, especially if you water your plants often. I managed to build this wooden stand with common materials and tools. With as little as 15 $ you can build this cool and useful wooden project.

You should always plan everything from the very beginning, in order to prevent costly mistakes and to save time. If this is your first project, you need a friend to assist you while assembling the hose stand. Invest in high quality lumber and plywood, as the components will be exposed to bad weather. Protect the components with appropriate paint or stain.

There are a few tips that you should take into account, if you want to get a professional result. Therefore, take accurate measurements and use professional tools when making the cuts or when drilling pilot holes. Align the components at both ends and add waterproof glue to the joints, if you want to create a rigid structure.

If you want a quick project that will make a huge difference in the look of your garden, building a wooden stand for a hose holder is a great choice. All the materials will cost you under 15 $, so you can build two for under 25 $.

Building the post

Building the post

The first step of the project is to build the post for the hose holder out of 4×4 lumber. Smooth the cut edges of the posts before continuing the woodworking project.

Building the stand supports

Building the stand supports

Use 2×4 lumber for the base supports. Cut one end of the supports in a decorative manner, by using a miter saw. Smooth the cut edges with fine-grit sandpaper and drill pocket holes at one end.

Center the supports to the vertical post and secure them into place using 2 1/2″ screws.

Next, attach the pieces to the post that will hold the plastic hose support. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the components into place tightly. Add glue to the joints and make sure the edges are flush.

Attaching the top caps

One of the last steps of the project is to fit the caps to the wooden stand. Cut one piece of 1×6 lumber at 5 1/2″ and center it to the top of the post. Lock the slat into place with 1 1/4″ screws and glue. Attach the 1×4 piece of lumber to get the job done in a professional manner.

After getting the job done and assembling all the components together, I recommend you to apply a few coats of paint or stain to protect the wood from decay.

First of all, I cut the supports for the base out of 2×4 lumber. Drill pocket holes at one end of the components. I cut the opposite end of the supports at 75 degrees, using my miter saw. Smooth the cut edges with 120-150 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.

Center the supports to the base of the post. Make sure the corners are right-angled and insert 2 1/2″ screws to get the job done in a professional manner. After fitting the components, I recommend you drilling pocket holes on both faces of the components. This will create really strong joints. Add waterproof glue to the joints.

Continue the woodworking project by fitting the support slats for the plastic hose holder. Drill pocket holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the 2×4 pieces to the vertical post.

After assembling the components, the wood hose holder starts to take shape. Taking into account it’s all reclaimed wood, I am pretty satisfied with the result. A few coats of paint will cover the dents and protect the wood from decay.

But first I need to make the cap for the hose holder. The base of the capping is a 5 1/2″ long piece ripped from a 1×6 slat. Center the component to the top of the post and secure it into place using galvanized screws and glue.

Next, cut a 3 1/2″ long piece of 1×4 lumber. Center the component to the top of the previous capping and lock it into place with several galvanized screws or brad nails. Smooth the edges before fitting the pieces into place, otherwise the end result won’t be as good as intended.

After attaching the capping to the stand, I filled the holes with wood putty. Next, I used 120-150 grit sandpaper to smooth the surface and I removed the residues with a damp cloth. I applied water-resistant paint over the components.

I fitted the plastic hose holder using screws. Make sure you center the solder to the supports, before inserting the screws.
