I don’t usualy paint my woodworking projects, but try to make differnce with metal look spray paint on that. It’s made for our terrace makeover, initiated by my wife.
It’s made of firwood slats which were glued on thin playwood inside with mitered corners. The pattern was made on router table cross cut jig, which I made in 5 minutes. There is central line on the jig and I marked all slats on opposite sides with small pencil mark, both were alligned on every pass and that’s how I made those rounded grooves. Dimensions 30×30x70 cm.

Looks good, Ivan. I thought it was  metal. Good job!

Very nice planter Ivan. Sometimes paint is required to get the look you want…I also thought it was metal at first glance. Now we need a photo with a plant in it! :)

Very nice look to it. It does have that metal looking effect. Good job on the quick fix jig.

Great job on a nice design. I am wondering why you did not route the groove the length of the strips and then cut the rectangles afterwards.

Looks great Ivan! I like the paint finish and it should help protect it from the elements. It also fits really nicely with the look of the terrace.
