I make and sell a few salad bowl-themed chimes, but made this one for myself. I had somehow acquired a couple of old hand tools, then when I got this idea went out and found some others – all are wood and metal (some antiques, really), no plastic allowed.

As always! Another creative idea. I especially like that you can plant flowers in the pail.

BTW, what do the chimes sound like in the wind? :D

Thanks, Iris. It mostly sounds a little clunky, though the trowels are fairly resonant. And it takes a pretty stiff wind to move them enough to get them to hit each other. I started off by hanging them with wire, but even with the swivels they were still very stiff. Changed them all to the string and they are much freer to move.

Still regardless of the sound, I love the looks of it. But I think I would still like the sound of the tools clicking together. It is just right for the garden. Good job, as always, Joel.
