Cedar Planter Box II
I purchased an old cedar telephone pole and had a friend mill the pole into 8/4 and 4/4 slices on his mill. Then I went about making a number of cedar planters for both personal use and to sell. The planters are made from a 50 year old cedar telephone pole that was decommissioned.
The cedar planter boxes are heavily constructed with 1¾” square legs and are made of solid cedar from a single telephone pole. The construction of the planters is made of sturdy tongue and groove joints, ship lapped planks and waterproof glue.
Wood: Cedar with Wenge pegs
Finish: Oil basecoat and Spar Urethane
Overall Dimensions: 21”W x 21”L x 22”H
Inside Dimensions: 17 ½”W x 17 ½L x 22”H
Here is a link to a video slideshow that depicts what went into making these planters. This was my second set of ” improved” planters. I was able to make 6 planters and I still have more wood from the telephone pole to make more. Link to YouTube video.
