As a school project, we had to design a module that combined urban gardening and events on the rooftop of Budafabriek, Kortrijk Belgium,  which accommodates a FabLab (BudaLab) and different organisations, as well as event-space. It had to be easy-to-make, from readily available parts.

As a result, we came up with extruded equilateral triangles with a sac to hald earth & plants.
These modules are stackable, moveable, made from cheap timber, screws, PVC and elastic bands.
They can be used as planters, but also as bar tables and stools.

.
If you have a pallet at home, the timber can easily be substituted for pallet wood (one side is 60cm, a europallet is 120*80cm).

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR 1 MODULE?

MATERIAL
3 Wooden planks 18*93 mm
36 Screws
PVC pipe diam 32mm, 1m
Elastic bands
Varnish

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR THE GARDENING BAG

TOOLS
-Wood saw (hand, band or circular saw are all good)
Chisel or grater
Brush or paint roller
Sewing machine
Square
Tape measure
Drill incl. philipshead bit & drills (diam. 4mm (predrilling) and 10mm) (preferable cordless > screwing)

Step 1: Sawing & drilling

Saw the wood to length and drill the holes.

Tips
Drill with a small drillbit first (for example 4mm), then from the front with a 10mm bit. This should fit 2 pieces of elastic band. Placing a leftover piece of wood underneath while drilling greatly reduces splintering at the end.


Step 2: Creating hooking system

DO THIS IF YOU WANT TO USE THIS MODULE TO HANG A GARDENING SACK IN.
OTHERWISE SKIP THIS STEP.

The small planks need some more work done.
We make a hooking system for the gardening sack. 

Step 1. Make two cuts with the saw.
Step 2. First work with the chisel for working away the big parts of wood
Step 3. For finishing use a rasp and/or sanding paper.
