Topic tags/keywords: planters pyramid hanging


At one point long ago my father built hanging planters out of redwood. These were inverted pyramids built up from progressively smaller pieces. He has long since passed and I have no plans or examples. I’m interested in how these were built, especially the version that added a twist to successive tiers. Anyone seen plans for such?

Aren’t they just a series of squares with sloped sides? Start off with the largest, make them incrementally smaller and slope the edges to follow the decrease in size from step to step. To twist the successive tiers just offset them as you stack them (rotate them along the plane of the square) ensuring that you leave no gaps from layer to layer as you rotate them.
