Mid Century Modern style planter made from reclaimed wood and recycled metal pipe.
The pipe is recycled aluminum water pipe, spun on a drill to de-burr and polish. It’s finished with a light lacquer for protection from fingerprints and water spotting.
How we did it, is chop down longer lengths of pipe, smoothed the ends with a custom holder, and polished with a bit of scouring pad. The bottom is capped inside with a circle of cedar wood (the really durable water-resistant kind), heavily bonded with waterproof food-safe wood glue, and caulked with aquarium caulk. We chose to use aquarium caulk and food-safe glue so we don’t poison your plants. You never know what sort of ickiness keeps the imports together. The unique legs are sanded to match the radius of the 5” wide metal pipe. They are fully sanded and detailed, and rubbed with a penetrating natural oil-and-beeswax finish.
5” wide x 5” tall
The best arrangement for this planter would be 3 or 4 two-inch potted succulents. Add sand and soil mix to the planter, add plants, more soil and sand mix, and lightly water. Small succulents can do quite well without drainage holes as long as gravel is used in the bottom.
We completely understand not everyone who can pick up little potted plants would like to keep a big bag of potting soil and gravel kicking around. If you’d like, we can include decorative gravel and potting mix. No additional cost, just let us know.
