So I came up with a great idea about a week ago. We are in the process of putting up a privacy fence on one side of our property. As we cut the boards we had to carry them over. My father was walking in the front and I was in the back. I noticed that if I set the lumber on my belt I could just use my one hand because my belt was taking the weight and spreading it out on my hip. Then it hit me. Make a metal over hang that clips on your belt on either your right our left side or both. Then as you carry lumber just rest it on this ledge that is attached to your belt. What do you think?
