The wooden moulding section in the hardware store is one I always walk through with the thought that I should be able to make something from them. They’re so perfect and smooth… surely they’re just ready to be crafted into something new?
With the success of my PVC pipe planter, I was riding on a succulent high. So I grabbed my Bosch drill and a spade bit (which I’d always wanted to try) and got crafting.
I thought it would be good as a planter because there was a hole drilled all the way through. Drainage is really important for plants.
Wooden foot, 30mm spade bit in drill, spray paint, succulent (with a low root system)
You might need to use a chisel to dig out a bit of extra space. An inch should be enough.
I’m looking forward to see how the planter ages, if the pain peels or the wood splits. It will give the planter more character.
