This Instructable shows you how to build a wooden pot for your favorite flower.In my case i've used it for my orchid. You will see it's a simple and easy thing to do.

Step 1: Step 1 - Material List

You will need:
1)  Wood, and to be more precise you will need a pice of trunk. The dimensions depend on what size you want your pot to be. I've cut my pice of trunk from an old cherry tree but you can use whatever type of wood you want
2) Drilling machine
3) Drills ( the lenght of the drill you use will determine how deep the pot will be)
4) Hammer
5) Chisel
6) Brush
7) Varnish
8) Sandpaper
<p>I wondered about the varnish, too. I wonder if some types are better than others.</p>
Really great! ty
How has the pot held up over time? Has the varnish affected the plant at all?
The varnish didn't affect the plant at all. I've put my orchid in that pot in Octomber 2009 and I still have it today...unfortunately I had forgot it outside on a cold night and it's not doing so well since then. But that is because orchids are sensitive to cold and not because of the varnish. At one moment it started making a keiki...but that was before the incident.
That turned out really nice.
