i love to cook, and i use a lot of herbs while doing it, sometimes to much my wife will say, and i had all my herbs in the ground, so i wanted to kinda fix them in one place and i came with this.

it can hold most of my herbs, which makes watering them much easier, but i will probably need another one.
funny thing, my wife liked so much she wanted for keeping it inside the house for her stuff, and it was there for a couple of days as i did not have the right finishing for it.

it is made of mahogany and cedar, and finished with Larotek, a kinda oil stuff that it says in the label it will protect from mold, insects, mildew and a lot of other stuff that i don’t believe that much but i am willing to give it a chance.

the herbs are:
thyme
rosemary
oregano
basil
scallions
chives
wild tomatoes
lemongrass
celery
mint

Nice idea, and good herb list too.

Looks like you’ll get lots of use out of it.

Nice job and thanks for the inspiration. My daughter has been asking for a herb garden and something like this would work on our deck.

Nicely done, Nayo! You have a lot of herbs. When I saw the thumbnail picture I thought it was a step stool and thought it was kind of wide! Hahaha! You may need more than one more. Thanks for sharing.

I really like the style on that… the shelving, the frame – just nice and simple.

Very cool design. It looks like it could be tweaked so that it could fold up. I may play around with your design to make a shelf using hardwood for inside. Thanks for sharing.

Yes the original idea was to make it to fold, but did not have the hardware for that, or the time, and if you need the sketchup file i can send it to you.

Have your say...
