1.get a piece of 3 inch PVC about 3 feet long(i prefer the sewer line because it is thicker.
2.measure off 6 inches of the pipe an mark it.
3.get a hack saw and cut from where you made the line down to the opposite side of the pipe so you make a 45* angle.
4.drill a hole the size of a broom stick(or a lil smaller to insure a tight fit)at the top about 2 inches down from the end.
5.cut a piece of broomstick 9 inches long(3 inches for each hand and 3 inches in the pipe)
6.shove the stick in and even it out. now apply an epoxy or superglue to the insides of the handles.
7.using a grinder or something similar cut a hole 1.5 inches wide by 3 inches tall on the side you made your line on.
8.customize! i like to get an old rasp and sharpen the end of the pipe to make it easier to insert. i also paint mine camo so it cannot be seen while im working near a road.like i said tho go crazy and make the pipe to your needs(some like a smaller hole some like a bigger one.

To use:stick pipe on ground where you want your hole and start puching and spinning. it should dig pretty easy. do this till you reach your ideal depth and pull out. if done right the dirt should be left in the pipe. the reason for the "window" or square hole cut in the side is to make removal of dirt easier(just stick your fingers in the hole and push and it should slide right out).

I hope this helps some people and like i said ill try to get pics made if i get some extra time. if you have questions untill the feel free to post them and ill explain them the best i can. \:\) (also good for pocket sets) [/img]
