Default Here is a project I found that think i'll make

I plan on making this from this idea mine will be designed around a plastic flower pot which I buy. Instead of putting the dirt on the wood.
As you can see easy project to make that you can tailor to your needs and materials.

Yeah, as long as the dirt doesn't come in contact with the wood...needs some kind of inserts/buckets/tubs.

Nice design. I've used Birdsmouth bits to build barrels around plastic tubs as well.

Default First picture of my version of this planter.

Started my planter build. Here is first picture. Final leg not installed to be able to see how it is assembled. Last leg is leaning against the frame.
Hopefully the frame will be finished and stained in the next couple days.

That's a nice project. One you can enjoy for many years.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I've got side tracked from this project. On one of those 5 minute projects.That has now turned into a 2 day problem. I had a piece of siding with a whole in it. Watched videos on how to take the piece out and replace. It did only take about 20 minutes but the profile of my siding didn't match the existing siding. I went back again today and looked at the samples and found the right form but they were getting ready to close there supposed to have 2 square of the siding but weren't able to find stock. They sell by the piece can't complain. I can probably fix the piece but would have an odd seam. That piece had about 5 or 6 inches of over hang on the two ends. So I cut the piece just before the hole on the left side. So I can shift the seam to the left 1 inch to cover the whole and still have and inch over hang on each joint.

Here is First frame complete. Still have to make end panels. Not sure what I'm going to use Steel roofing , or plastic panels.

That came out nice... as in very nice...

compromise on the panel and use FRP or thinner Hardie Board...
the HB will have dimples/grain/texture/grooves, will add to the design and be bullet proof come Mother Nature...
the FRP will be a close 2nd...

this is FRP....

the Lowes here sells damaged panels and siding at some serious clearance pricing...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....
