This is another plan from the pages of Wood magazine. It is a planter box and trellis made out of cedar and copper pipe. It was a birthday gift I made for my girlfriend’s mom. It was surprisingly easy to make, although the almost 30 feet of 3/4” copper pipe was highly painful to purchase. I had a crash course in “figure out the total cost of materials before committing to a project and buying all the lumber and not being able to back out of the project because a loved one is really excited about it.” It was definitely worth it though, her family loves the thing. This was done last spring and now the copper is starting to turn green which looks great. I should note that all the pictures make the trellis top look like it isn’t level. I assure you it is level, I might be only a year into wood working but I know a square when I see one!
