Cedar Dibble

A dibble is an important tool in the garden. You use it from transplanting plants to planting bulbs. This hand crafted Cedar Dibble is made from cedar because of the insect repellent properties the heart wood (red) cedar has. It is smooth grained with an all natural bees wax finish. It has wood burned grooves at 1 inch intervals to make depth planting easy. The rounded handle makes a comfortable grip to work with in the garden. It measures a 1 1/2 inch handle, 9 inches long, with a 5/8 inch point.

The list price of Cedar Dibbles is $12.99, cheaper than most dibbles this size. I will custom make smaller or larger ones, email for pricing on custom made ones.

Email me at for pricing, or interested in ordering one.

  1. For wood turning it is easy. You spin the object on the lathe and using a copper wire press down in a groove with it. The friction heats up the copper (the specific heat of copper is lower than most other metals, so it heats up faster) and burns the wood. It doesn't take to long.

  2. That is very interseting. I wonder how hard it would it would be to wood burn words into a sign?
    A friend of mine asked me to make him a sign that way.
