Default Homemade grader...

Well, I felt like I needed to get something done around the house today so I decided to even out my driveway! Since I have no money for a real grader and or to pave my driveway I made my own grader. I used an old box spring and for some weight the Milles 4 the bonne....worked pretty good if I say so myself!!
