Cool Drunken Planters

Earlier this month, my friend and Modern Woodworkers Association Toledo Chapter member David Picciuto published a video on making cactus planters. He titled it "How To Make Cactus (or Succulent) Planters."

My finished planters (and my miter saw).

Seeing how nice David's planters looked, I decided I wanted to lean how and watched. After seeing the simple yet beautiful method David used, I decided I should make some for my wife for Mother's Day. I headed out to the shop, pulled together man of the fancy scraps Steve Taylor had given me before his departure for Germany and got to work making the planters.

You can see my take on the planter construction here:

For an even better explanation of the planter build (and I slightly different method than I used) you can check out David's original video:
