Newspaper pot maker
recycle rules…

No I did not invent this tool, just made a copy of one I saw and took notes from when I came home from the shop…
Gangster potter!.

You can read more in the wee blog:

1. The maker and base.
2. Turning the maker.
3. Turning the base.
4. Nice with a twist…
5. The wood was recycle too.
6. A newspaper pot.

Hope this can inspire others to recycle.

Best thoughts,

You’re just a busy guy. This sort of thing is just what an urban gardener should be doing in winter. Getting ready for spring. Get your garden stared early so you can plant in the spring. I’m going to have to take your lead and make one or 2 and put them to use.

Thanks for being so diligent with your posts.

Mads, I have seen these in a catalog and thought wow I could make that… still on my list but great to see that it can be done. I will hopefully get around to it on of these days.

Nice work and very useful.

Fantastic idea. Spring is a really long way away for us here, that gives me time to get ready. I hope you don’t mind if I use your idea, my wife saw these and would like for me to make a couple. Great job Mafe, thanks for sharing.
