    Garden Hose Nozzle Display Case

    I just recently completed a display case for my small collection of old brass garden hose nozzles. I made the case from leftover hard maple that I used to make my new workbench

    Here is a photo of the finished project and the complete article of the build process can be found on my website (if interested) at:

    Your comments are welcome.

    I agree with stu and I never heard of anyone collecting garden hose nozzles but now I have..

    That's a nice cabinet, Dave. Like others, I'd not heard of people collecting garden hose nozzles, but I'll bet there are some cool ones out there to be found.

    First, nice cabinet, and like mirroring the others, I too have never heard of collecting old garden hose nozzles. I will however be on the lookout for them. This is New England after all and king of the old and frugal people. Yes we repair houses that split rather then throw them away.

    I also implore you to check out "Liberty Tool", a store that would have antique garden nozzles. They have everything else.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Good job on the case. Very nice, your shelves certainly look stout. Larry will approve.
    Like the others, I have never heard of garden nozzle collecting. But folks like to collect lotsa things. Neat.
