Introduction: I Am Groot Planter - Gardens of the Galaxy
Who doesn't like to grow there own Herbs and baby Groot? there's nothing new here, I'm just trying to put a geek spin on it.
There will be a video for this project, I'm just waiting for the plant to grow. I had to use fake plant for this picture. i will update the pictures once the real plants grow
Step 1: Material Selection and Preperation
If you do intend to eat the Herbs from the planter then choose a suitable material to make it from. I'm just making this more as a decoration so am just using some scrap wood from pallets etc. As with most of my projects i rip, cut, plane, thickness and glue my scrap wood in to more useable wood panels.
Step 2: Cutting the Design
I've got a CNC so im gonna use this to cut out my design. But this could also be done with scroll saw, jig saw etc
Step 3: Glue, Paint, Sand and Finish
I glue up the layers of the design, give everything a sand. and depending on the design I will highlight some dtails with paint and then add a clear varnish
Step 4: Plant Your Seeds
Add some soil, seeds, and water. then wait for them to grow.
i used some lentil seeds and cotton wool to try and get them to grow quickly. and used the tinfoil to capture the water.
Step 5: Finish
