DIY electric fence wire holder

Easy, low budget, DIY wire holder

Our first roll of electric wire lasted years, and all that time I was unrolling it wrong.

I started out thinking a 2x4 frame with a handle would work as a holder for today's brand new roll. I was low on scrap wood, but got inspired when I saw an empty bucket in the garden.

It can also be used to carry wire cutters and the mini-sledge hammer.
