We have some tomato plants for the first time in years. We didn’t want to put them in the ground because of a potential battle with squirrels and besides this was a lot more fun. It is made of pine shelving board and some cheap cabinet grade plywood. I had the casters and wood but had to buy the stain.
It is a plywood box put together with pocket hole screws (love the Kreg by the way). I added the trim for decorative purposes and just glued it in place. I added screws when I impatiently wanted to move a little faster.
A gallon was way too much and luckily SWMBO liked the color because everything I do is going to be the same color for quite a while. If you look closely you can see a small gap between the bottom and the concrete. There are wheels underneath and this clearance allows for easy movement. The stain is an exterior deck/project stain. On the can it didn’t say that multiple coats were needed but I am thinking of hitting it with some 220 and doing another coat. Does anyone know much about this type of stain? It is Cabot Australian Timber Oil. Thanks…Darren
