What can you do with an abandoned old crib and some empty milk jugs? Probably lots of stuff, but I decided to make a planter for some of my tomatoe plants. This instructable takes one side of a crib and turns it into a mountable upside down milk jug planter.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
drill bit to predrill holes
small wood screws
4 milk jugs
side of a crib
scrap 1x8 board
Step 2: Measuring (quote/unquote)
Using some sort of straight edge, draw a line to mark where to cut on both sides of the crib.
Make the cuts, and set aside the bottom of the future planter.
Step 3: Cut the front and back sides
NOTE: For the back side, I wanted the edges to be longer for mounting later
Make pencil lines for the cuts for the next two pieces, observing the note above, leaving 3 bars spacing for each.
Cut your front a back piece and set aside.
Step 4: Side braces
Using a straight edge, extend the line across the scrap board.
Grab your saw, and chop off the first side edge.
For the second side, i just traced the side of the first cut side brace.
