Patio Planter

Patio Planter Woodworking Plan

This planter, is designed to make patio or deck gardening much easier. Instead of just filling the well with dirt and putting in individual flowers or plants, you can simply use pre-potted plants. That makes it easy to change plants as the seasons turn or unload the planter and move it to a new location.

This plan is designed to hold pots up to 11 inches in diameter. and 10-1/2 inches high. To create the illusion of a dirt-filled planter, you can fill in around the pots with wood chips, bark or other mulch. The planters can be built in two different lengths, but you can also adapt them to meet any size requirement. You can even change the width
to accommodate a slightly wider pot.

Skill Level: Intermediate.

This project gives the woodworking students the opportunity to complete a sizeable project while employing such skills as measuring, templating, crosscutting and assembly with screws. Since these planters can be made to fit a particular space, this project is also a good exercise in custom-sizing.

This 7-page pdf project plan from Miniwax, is well laid out, with a Shopping List, list of Tools Required, a Cutting List, step-by-step directions and some nice line diagrams to help you along.
