My wife and I were taking a ride down an old back road when we saw a barn that had fallen down. The owner was there and I had to ask “can I have some wood”? To my surprise he said “sure, take all you want”! I just happened to have my truck. :) My wife went for the doors and gates while I went for planks. I built this for her in the spring, taking the old dish down off the 4X4 and attached the gates. Then I built a flower box for the bottom and my wife planted the flowers. The bird house we built together a few years ago and being weathered made a nice touch. As for the planks, I guess I’ll hold on to them til I locate a planer. Can’t wait to see what type of wood it is.

What a creative collaborative effort Jeff. The planter is very unique as well as attractive.
