(A Remarkable Wood Preservative)

The handle rub is a soft paste. It contains all natural ingredients. 

Since posting this photo essay here in May of 2009, it has received over 9,000 views. A lot of people have made their own hoe handle rub using the old recipe given to me by Pat Gorham. 

Now, after four years, I have published Pat's handle rub recipe in The Planet Whizbang Idea Book For Gardeners, and I have moved this photo essay to the book's online Resources web site. 

When you purchase a copy of the Idea Book For Gardeners, you also get directions to the book's "hidden" online Resources web site.
