EP139 DIY Planter and Side Table


EP139 DIY Planter and Side Table



I love having plants in my living room but space is limited in the container house so I made a DIY planter and side table combination out of some leftover pieces of plywood and steel. In this video I will focus on a version that requires welding but will also show how a similar structure could be built without welding. I used 1/4″ steel rod, 1″ x 1/8″ flat steel bar and 3/4″ maple veneer plywood. The plant is a fiddle leaf fig that I bought with the pot from Home Depot.
