I used to use a window planter to create a nice and cozy space for my family, but as the years went by I found myself using more and more planters for my garden.
As my kids grow up and I begin to look for a different way to decorate my yard, I decided to start creating my own planterboxes that could also be used for other projects.
The idea came to me during a visit to my parents home a couple of years ago.
The windows and doorways were covered in plastic and wood shavings, and I could see that the carpet was falling apart in the garage.
As I looked around, I saw a planer box that was just waiting to be used.
The box was set up in the living room and I thought, “How cool would it be if I could put a box of plants in my window?”
The planter was set for a 3.5 gallon size and I was looking for something that would help my plants flourish while keeping the windows and doors in shape.
I decided to use an old wood planter from the store.
To be honest, I was skeptical of using an old planter, but my wife was skeptical that it would work with my plants and was worried that the planter would be a nuisance for the children.
She gave me some advice: “Just put a few drops of vinegar on the wood and it’ll work.
But if you put too much vinegar on it, it’ll turn black and it will stink.
It’ll ruin the whole look of the garden.”
I started to experiment with different types of planters, then came to the realization that the old wood and the vinegar would work fine for my needs.
I decided I’d use the planters from the local hardware store, as they were fairly inexpensive and did not have any mold or mildew issues.
As soon as I saw that the vinegar was working, I knew I had found the perfect solution.
I made a batch of homemade vinegar solution and filled the box with it.
The vinegar solution has a mild flavor and the mixture will keep the planerbox from molding and discoloring.
My first order of business was to get the planber boxes ready.
The first step was to cut the plastic pieces that would attach the planers to the wall, the window planer boxes and the patio planerboxes.
First, cut a 3-inch-wide piece of 4-inch plywood from 1/2 inch thick and lay it flat on the floor.
Then cut the pieces of plywood that would hold the planing strips together, and cut the ends of the planed strips to make a 3/4-inch strip.
Next, lay 1 1/4 inches of 3/8-inch wood on the 4- inch plywood, then mark the ends with an 11/16-inch hole saw.
You can use a sharp knife to make the holes, but if you have a 3 1/8×1/2-inch drill press, you can use it.
Finally, lay the plan of the wood on top of the plywood.
Lay the plan in a vertical position and secure it with a zip tie.
After the wood was secured, the first thing I did was to trim off the excess wood.
I then cut off 1/16 inch of 1-inch of 4×4 and 1/32 inch of 3×3 lumber.
Now that I had the pieces all cut out, I just needed to fill the plan and start putting the plan on the box.
Once the plan was complete, I used my soldering iron to melt the excess plastic and the plan to the desired size.
It took a couple hours of patience and a little patience with the iron, but once it was all hot, I started the process.
The box was now complete.
Using a large pot of boiling water, I poured the vinegar solution over the planks, leaving a couple inches between each planks.
This is where I made my mistake.
When I poured vinegar solution on top, I thought it would cover the entire plan.
But I noticed that it covered just a couple square inches of the surface.
I quickly filled that area with more vinegar.
With a little practice, I realized that I would need to carefully work around the edges of the vinegar so that it didn’t coat the whole plan, and then I would add more vinegar to make it cover more of the space.
During the next few hours, I worked my way around the corners of the area to get a good coating of vinegar.
Once the vinegar coating was complete and the area was covered, I filled the remaining space with the remaining plan pieces.
A few hours later, I could finally add my planter and enjoy the beauty of the original
