Indirect Observations: miniature zen garden

zen garden tools Since the first time I saw one of those miniature zen gardens for your desktop at the shops, I have thought that it would be great to make one. But it seemed that although I could get rocks, sand and a suitable container it was hard to find something attractive to use for a rake (a fork being practical but not attractive). Then, I saw the minature zen garden at the Magic Onions … simple and brilliant. So I got out the glue gun (you can see that I haven’t had much hot gluing experience) …
B helped. We searched for zen gardens on Flickr so that he knew what we were making and had some ideas for arranging the rocks and raking patterns in the sand. He played around for a while, mounding up the sand and putting a single rock on top or placing rocks artistically throughout the garden, but I think his favourite part of the activity was seeing the magic sticking power of a hot glue gun!

I have a 500 watt continuous 1000 watt peak

Inverter from "Sams Club". It works great in the car to run a lap top etc. 500 watts should give me a solid 4 amps continuous and 8 amps peak. My hedge trimmer which claims on the label it needs 2.6 amps, is well within this, but seems to run weak (I connect to the garden tractor battery, with the tractor running).
I suspect tools run weak because the inverter output is a modified sine wave, kind of half way between a sine wave and a square wave. I have noticed other power tools are functional, but seem to run a bit weak for some reason. I have run drills, reciprocating saws, and the hedge trimmer on the inverter
