You know how it is, sweetie pie wants you to make something right away and expects to use it the same day.
She decided she was going to try growing veggies in a Planter and she demanded I made her 2 to get her started – NOW! I tried to explain that it took time to design and make things but she gave me that “with all those tools you have” routine, so I shut up and hit the shop.
These planters are quickly made but are solid. I used cedar fence planks for the “boxes” and treated pine for the frames.
The first one I made was a little too high for Sweetie, so I made the second one lower. She wanted them mobile so she could move them for sun exposure in the afternoon.
The Hoop addition which is removable is for 3/4” plastic mesh to be fitted to keep stealing birds and kitty cats out, it is like a removable tent.
The casters have brakes to achieve the repositioning request.
Since I made these I have greatly improved and standardized the planter and even have a plant holder/tool tote accessory – but it’s all on paper. When I feel like it I’ll make the new design and post it for you to see what you think.
My reward for completing Sweetie Pie’s demands was a PC sander ….. life is good!
