I came across a large pile of reclaimed truck flooring wood (Asian Woods) and did not know what to do with it. One day I decided to build a flower planter. When I first started I wanted it to be something plain and simple. My friend and neighbor saw what I was doing and offered his help in creating a design. My neighbor is well versed in the use of a software program called SketchUp. I’m sure many, if not all of you have heard of it. This program allowed me to create this project using different bevel and miter cuts. At my skill level, I know I would not have been able to create this. I learned a lot about miters and compound miters. I always had a fear of miters and steered clear of them if I could. I have found using mitered joints and angles can really bring a project to life. Thanks for allowing me to share this.
