I made these flower pots as Christmas gifts. I got the idea from watching Steve Ramsey make them on his YouTube channel Woodworking for Mere Mortals. They are made of mahogany and maple. The outside is finished with polyurethane cut 50/50 with mineral spirits. Steve used a two part epoxy resin on the inside but that stuff is crazy expensive. I went with several coats of HARDROCK concrete sealer by Beauti-Tone. Time will tell if this was a good idea or not. I picked up the goofy stuffed penguin off the holiday shelf at my local Canadian Tire store.
Thanks for your interest.
Aaron aka DustBeard…............ Attention As it turns out, I have to say I would NOT recommend using HARDROCK concrete sealer for this project. After checking on one that was 1/3 full of water from over watering the plant, it was not fairing well. Next time I will just bite the bullet and go with two part epoxy resin.
