Mothers day planter for my wife.
« on: May 11, 2019, 12:47 PM »
So i am completely new to ferstool. I used pretty much all my tools. Goal was for no screws
  Ive done mostly metal fab but want to start w some wood projects. Im handy  but not refined and im a perfectionist.  It was made to fit a small cart that i welded wheels too.  I used cedar edging for a garden. Came in a 10' roll  attached w wire. Its only 6" high so it was perfect. Used pine on the ends and legs.  Its a prototype and had very little time to make it.  Starting a new one on monday. This should hold her over lol
 Fun little project. I love my domino 500. What a breeze.
  Theres a few things id do different and will do on next one.

-cute little project which is likely to be enjoyed for a long time. Thanks for sharing this bit of inspiration.

I imagine you bored some large drain holes in the bottom covered with shards of broken pottery so the soil does not wash out and plug the drain holes.

The cedar flower box window planters we added to our house have been filled with fresh topsoil every season for 20 years and remain good looking and serviceable. Your planter can last, also.
