OMG it took me forever to figure out how to post pictures! This is one of my outdoor planters that I made from a picture I saw online. It is made of white oak, stained, and then I put poly on it. I hope it lasts for a few years anyway!.

Well done!

As an FYI – I built an old fashion style flower cart out of white oak 8 years ago. It has been outside, year round, all this time and it is holding up nicely with no finish on it. (Yes, it has grayed, but no sign of deterioration.)

Nice plant stand. White oak is a good outdoor wood. Heavy but for a small project like this I would think that is what you want.

Very nice Kathy. White oak was a great choice and you did a really good job on it. I’m pretty sure it will last a long time. The poly might not hold up too well, but that’s easy enough to redo. A good marine varnish might be a better choice as it is more flexible and won’t flake so easily as poly, or no finish at all if you like a gray patina. Coincidentally I made an outdoor plant stand somewhat similar to your design about 8 years ago, but it is wider and made from fir. I’ll try to send you a pic of it soon just for fun. I hope you don’t mind my unasked for advice on the finish.

Stefang, I don’t mind the advice at all. That’s my reason for being here – to learn from the experts!.
