I got this design from a book a while ago and finally took the time to make one of these for myself. First I made the box. The box itself is 3/4” MDO plywood with screws and glue. I painted it with RustOleum “Eden” spray paint. Then I ran some 3/4” x 10’ cedar on the router table with a classical ogee. A few hours with the miter saw and a brad nailer and I had a nicely trimmed box. After all the nail holes were filled and everything was sanded properly I sprayed the box with lacquer to seal it. I didn’t stain on the wood; just left it natural cedar. I have plans in the works for another one of these boxes to build tomorrow. The plant is a majesty palm, in case anyone cared about the plant. Comments appreciated!
