tutorial on building a carpenter’s toolbox planter
Happy Monthly DIY Challenge day, friends! It’s time again to get together with my best bloggy friends and create different projects using one common theme or item.
For this month our theme was “planters” and I chose to make a wooden carpenter’s toolbox to use as a plant holder. It was a really simple project with minimal materials.
- 1x6x8 board
- nails and nail gun
- miter saw
- 1″ spade bit
- wood stain
HOW TO MAKE A CARPENTER’S TOOLBOX PLANTER
First, I cut the board into three sections that measured 24″ each. Then, I nailed two of the boards to the sides of the last board.
Next, I cut two sections at 8″ long each. I cut the top corners of each board at an angle and drilled a hole in them with the spade bit. I nailed the sides into the ends of the 24″ boards.
Last, I stained it with Special Walnut stain.
See, super simple. I can’t wait to fill it with different flowers through the seasons.
