Great planter but how do you make them so that I could have a go for the wife as she loves things like these.

timtop, they are really quite easy. hardest part is the wheels. the parts are made from 1×4 stock. made like 2 boxes and the top box attached to make the planter and seat back. The wheels are made with a combination of router to cut the circles, forstner bit and jig saw for the spokes. Axels are made from dow rods and copper pipe brackets. and they roll. I use autosketch 10 for design of all my projects. would love to send you the plans if you would like. Just let me know. My first one went to my wife and she really liked it. When others seen it I then had to make 8 more!

Good job. You build all of your own wheels? I do, very time consuming.
