Tall Planters

Submitted by np78s on Mon, 05/25/2020 - 20:01

I love the way these planters look and knew I wanted to make them. My freehand circular skills aren't great, so I attached the pickets together with a furring strip and used a template (second picture) to make the cuts. I used screws to attach the furring strips so that once the trim pieces are attached, the furring strips can be removed - or not. This method takes a little longer but it allowed me to make uniform parts. It's also easier to align the sides of the planters since the pickets are already attached to one another - i.e. one unit. I've made two, have a third, shorter one in progress and plan to make more!
