In today's video Chef Vaughn and Chef Elisha will be showing you how to make your own DIY soil sifter. We needed a soil sifter to sift some soil. We made one before, but we needed more finer soil. That's why we made a finer sifter. This DIY project is great for parents and kids to work on together, while having fun. Kids don't need to be Berkeley Chefs to achieve this. 

This soil sifter gets the job done. It doesn't need to be perfect, though, because we're not building a rocket ship. 

A soil sifter cost about over $50, but this one we made cost less than $5. Pretty impressive right? We use recycled pallet wood, a few of nails, a screen and a couple of tools. If you don't have a circular saw, you can use a hand saw.
