Wood Planter With Casters

Introduction: Wood Planter With Casters

For a school assignment, I have decided to make a wooden planter with casters. With the quarantine, I was not able to go out to buy supplies so I used some wood lying around in the house.

Supplies

Material

  • wood planks
  • 2'' caster wheels (4)
  • 6d 2'' nails (30)
  • #6 1'' screws (12)

Tools

  • hand saw
  • circular sander
  • hammer
  • screw driver
  • power drill

Step 1: Measure and Cut

The measurements:

  • A: 26'' x 5.5'' x 0.75'' (2)
  • B: 26'' x 2.75'' x 0.75'' (2)
  • C: 10'' x 5.5'' x 0.75'' (2)
  • D: 10'' x 2.75'' x 0.75'' (2)
  • E: 26'' x 11.5'' x 0.75'' (1)
  • 2'' swivel caster (4)

Cut the wood to the measurement using hand saw.

Use the circular sander to adjust the size and smooth the surface.

Step 2: Assemble

  1. Attach the two D's to E to the two short ends using 2 nails each.
  2. Attach the two A's to E to the two long ends using 7 nails each.
  3. Attach the two C's on top of the D's using 2 nails each.
  4. Attach the two B's on top of the A's using 4 nails each.
  5. Attach the swivel casters on the bottom of E, one on each corner, using 3 screws each.

Step 3: Complete

The planter is now complete and you can put in flower pots inside. You can move the planter to your place of preference.

    For using only what you had on hand, this turned out looking very good!
