This planter will hold six 6” pots in a relatively small amount of space. It is made from just two boards, too. You will need two 5/8”X6”X8’ cedar fence pickets to build this project.
Cut the boards as follows:
3 16” boards for the ladder steps
2 46” boards for the ladder sides
Take one of the 16” boards and draw a line down the center on the long side of the board. Come in 3.5” and mark along the line on each end. Draw a 5” diameter circle using the mark as the center of the circle.
Now cut the circles out with a jig saw or scroll saw. Do the same with the other two 16” boards.
Come up 11: from the bottom of one of the 46” pieces of wood. Attach the first 16” board at that point with wood screws. Be sure and drill pilot holes first or the cedar will split on you.
Measure up from the first board 11” and put in the second one. Do the same for the third one.
Attach the second 46” board to the three 16” boards. Fill the holes of your new planter with six inch clay pots.
