TIMBER pot covers
Create an all-natural look in your garden with timber pot covers. Adjust them to suit the size of your pots, which also helps create variety. For taller pots, stack two covers on top of each other to add height
What you’ll need
Mitre saw; 140 x 18mm x 1.2m Western red cedar; PVA glue: masking tape; clear satin polyurethane; paintbrush; 240-grit sandpaper
Using a mitre saw, cut six 200mm lengths of cedar with a 30° angle on each end. This will suit a 300mm pot with a bit of wriggle room around it. For smaller pots, reduce the length of the timber pieces. Sit the lengths on edge, spread PVA glue on the cut ends and butt together. Wipe off excess glue with a damp rag. Hold the joins together with masking tape while the glue dries. Apply 3 coats of clear satin polyurethane to the planter, allowing to dry and sanding lightly between coats.
