Made from rescued fence boards.

15-1/2 inches long—4 inches tall and 4-7/16th wide.

Clay pots are standard 3-1/2 inch ones.

Drain holes in the bottom too; just in case.

Was just seeing what it would turn out like.

At this time unfinished—trying to decide whether to put a coat on it or not. Might just give the lid a paste wax finish,

As always; comments and ideas welcome!

It is getting that time of year for growing plants so your planter is very appropriate. Nicely done!!

Good idea for early planting. I think some BLO and the wax would protect it for awhile
