Do It Yourself - - TRY IT -

All it takes is six even pieces of wood and some an­gled cuts to make this stun­ning cedar planter, op­po­site and right. For the small planter, us­ing a com­pound miter saw, cut six pieces of cedar wood to 6 3–8 inches wide and 7 inches tall. (For the large planter, cut six boards to 81/2 inches wide and 7 inches tall.) Cut each side at a 30-de­gree an­gle. Glue sides to­gether us­ing wood glue for ex­te­rior use (such as Tite­bond III). Wipe away ex­cess glue with a damp cloth and let dry (A). Ap­ply three coats of spar ure­thane with a bris­tle brush, al­low­ing ap­pro­pri­ate dry­ing time and lightly sand­ing be­tween coats. Planters are de­signed to fit around a plant that is al­ready in a pot. We kept the bot­tom open for easy drainage.
