Great looking planter ! Good use of simple hand tools , they are so often forgotten these days.Well done !I like all manner of pallet furniture and have made some in the past..https://www.instructables.com/member/victorvector/...
Good job , and simple project too.These will look better as they age , and get some patina .I have built some of these type of planters in the past , and added horizontal trim pieces around the top . mitered in the corners. It finishes them off nicely.My planters are also made from recycles pallet wood , because it is softwood , I lined the inside of the box with plastic to keep the water and moist soil off the boards to prevent rot. I then lined them with weed mat before adding a compost mix. I also added a hardwood lattice inside the bottom so the water drains out easily. A piece of galv. mesh would be even better. Here is my vote Swinkless , good job !
This was very informative and interesting. I live in Southern Australia , and the conditions here are similar to yours , perhaps slightly less heat in summer , but only marginally.Excellent !
Excellent project.I hope you can find the time in the future to go into more detail about the electronics , for us " electronically challenged " people . Maybe when you get to the new install.I`m looking forward to hear more about it it , congratulations again , it`s a great job !

Nice job .I like it.
I agree Nitro.I built this one with two pallets and a circular saw.If you have the tools , you should use them.

HI Karl.Take or leave this advice , as you see fit:It`s not the power of the amplifier , or the speakers that are all that important here , its the sensitivity of the speakers.It`s quite possible to build a very LOUD little system with a small chip amplifier of only perhaps 10 - 15 watts / channel.There are full range speakers , like for example a Fostex FE 103En ( a small four inch full range)with 94 decibels/watt/metre , output , or maybe Dayton Audio PS220-8 ( eight inch driver , full range).96 dec./watt/mThere are others .With full range drivers there is no need for tweeters or crossovers .
Great idea !That drum skin makes a very efficient passive radiator ;)
