Today I share this fantastic DIY WOOD PLANTER you can make using one board.
I am joining a fabulous group of woodworking gals today. My friend over at Jen Woodhouse organizes monthly challenges, and I thought I would challenge myself more with building this year. So today’s challenge was to create something from a single ONE BOARD. And I made not ONE but TWO of these super cool wood planters.:-)
I just posted about my BOHO Patio REFRESH last week, and these planters are the perfect additions to my super fun patio. I love plants inside or out, and I am always short on planters. I knocked these planters out using ONE 8 FT board that cost me $12. That’s a deal, am I right?
HOW TO MAKE A DIY WOOD PLANTER
Materials you need:
- One 1x10x8 pine board
- miter saw ( or you can have your board cut at The Home Depot
- wood glue
- wood screw
- stain ( optional)
STEPS TO MAKE A DIY WOOD PLANTER
- Cut the wood panels to size. I wanted to make sure I can get two planters out of my board and knowing that I was working with an 8ft board, I determined the size of the sides of my planters.
- I cut 3 x 9 1/4″ and 2 7 3/4″ pieces for my planter.
- I glued and secured the 3 x 9 1/4″ pieces together. I used wood glue on the sides then I drilled a pilot hole and screwed the sides together.
- Then as the last step, I added the two sides ( the 2 x 7 3/4 pieces) — same way: drilled a pilot hole and a screw.
And then I stained it with dark chestnut wood stain.
It was an easy project that I was comfortable with, and I think they turned out super cool.
Will you try to make these planters? They are so fun and easy to make!
