A while ago I introduced you how to make a planter with pallets, specifically the one in the photo above, you can see the post where I explained this process here: http://diypalletfurniture.net/pallet-planters/build-a-planter/

I want to explain better the process so today I’m going to show you the instructions and the step by step process with several 3D plans of how to create this planter. Firstly we need five pallets as the one on the image .

Cut the boards with the height of the planter, in this case I cut them by its half to make the planter of 50cm high (19.5 “)

The last step is to cut and nail the boards of the fifth pallet to make the base of the planter, this is the side that will be over the ground.
