Made from fence cedar wood.

No metal at all used. Joined by bamboo pegging and just exterior glue.

The clay pot is just a standard 4” cheap one from H-D. Total length is about 14” and 6” wide and about 7” tall.

Paint is just art acrylic craft paint. Design is by T & E again.

After the paint was dry; it received a quick spray polyurethane coat too.

The hood has a brand from my home-made branding iron. I heat it to almost glowing with a propane torch.

Ideas and suggestions are always welcome.

Another great planter idea. Can’t see your brand on the hood but it might look cool on the side of the bed on each side?

Great little truck planter. May be worth converting it into a kid rider. Looks like that baby will roll.
