This is my first projects to be posted . Wife wanted some new planters for the deck . Wood magazine had this couple of months ago gave them a try came out good. They are made of 5/4 pressure treated wood . Cedar a little expensive here in New York Long Island. They are stained with cabot’s barn red stain. Used popular dowels instead of 3/4 copper pipe for trellis

Those are pretty nice, you did a good job. What kind of bottom did you use? I have some leftover redwood from a porch swing. I’ve been wanting to make a planter out of it, been laying on my workbench for over a month now. I don’t want a wood bottom, any suggestions?

I was planning on building one of these for my wife as well. It is small enough to still on our porch, but large enough for her needs. Do you think you could share the overall cost of the project? Thanks, it looks GREAT!

Planning on doing some of these as well. You did a great job!!

I am going to use the ””Deckorator classic ballusters” instead of the copper pipe. They run @ $2.50 ea. for the 32” Much less than Copper pipe!!

Devann bottoms are 5/4×6 pt with gap between boards for drainage. Cost of both planters was approx 150 dollars thats with buying screws and set of fostner bits ineeded to drill holes for dowels. Bit set was 25 dollars at grizzly bits are 1/16 increaments set of 6.Thanks to all for comments
