It's 55 degrees and partly cloudy, and I think thoes are great planters. Some folks get an early jump on spring, ... makes the winter seem to go faster.
Are these landscape timbers??

Octagon. Top ring is 10-1/2 inch lengths. Second ring is 9-1/2 inch lengths, third ring is 8-1/2 inch lengths, and forth ring is 7-1/2 inch lengths.

Handle has two pieces 8 inches long flat on one end, two 8 inch lengths and one 14 inch piece. All angle cuts are 22-1/2 degrees. I use TBIII on all joints. Ceramic coated deck screws. Rings are screwed toe nail style on bottom of the ring. Rings are screwed from underneath with 5 inch screws. The handle has 3 - 5 inch screws from underneath on each side.

I guess it's the gardening season in SD! You glue those end grain joints with no other fasterers? Interesting.

No, there's two screws in every joint underneath.

Those are well made and sturdy looking .
Should last a long time and a heavy wind should not toss them around .

Happy New Year Monte
