These are a couple of cedar planters I made for an online auction at work benefitting the United Way. I made them Texas inspired and sprayed them with a coat of wood protector with a honey gold tint to help highlight the grain. They ended up fetching $160 at the auction which is quite a bit more than my cost to build them fortunately.
Each vertical strip is routed with a roman ogee edge and butted up against the other, giving a nice decorative groove effect. Nothing too special about them, basic design with a little bit of added character with the state of Texas cut out and additional router detail. I know some probably appreciate a cleaner cedar grain without the knots, but personally I love the knots when placed right. Enjoy…
