Mike writes - I bought a bike planter and after a few weeks outside the "box" literally fell apart. These hexagonal planters were made from 1 inch pine, ripped down and the ends mitered at a 30 degree angle, the layerd corn crib style and glued. If you look closely you can see that the baby robin likes it.
|Clamshell Style Boxes
Mike writes - These clamsheell boxes are about 3 inches wide with some of the lids hinged and some are not. The heart shaped box, the box is made of sourthern yellow pine, cut from a couple of large slabs from a tree that had been cut down and had aged a little, the shape was cut on a bandsaw freehand, then sliced and the interior hoggged out using forstner bits on a drill press. Rotary files and burrs were also used to remove the excess material on the inside of these boxes. This type box is a great time killer, and very simple if you have acess to wood thick enough to make them from one piece of it.
Mike writes - This table is made from slabs cut from some trees that had been taken down for different reasons. This table is great for setting next to your favorite chair and putting your coffee and the remote for the tv. The top is pecan as are the feet, the upright was made from treated landscaping timber.
