I didn’t know this was a thing until this month when my wife showed me pictures and asked me to make one. This one is made out of an old pallet and some old house siding. Not difficult to make at all, just a simple box glued and nailed together. My wife stained it.
I was skeptical while making it. It is basically just an ugly box. But it looks pretty cool once you set the tree in it, I gotta say.
