Introduction: Horse Trough Planter
All the construction steps are in the video
We have horses on the homestead and I have always wanted an old fashioned horse trough like you see in the westerns so I came up with this design for a horse trough planter to go next to my gate.
The planter is made from recycled cedar fence boards and a pressure treated 2x4 and can be made in about 2 hours. Makes a real nice planter for flowers or could be used for vegetables.
Estimated cost is under $20 or less if you use recycled materials like I did.
(1) 2x4x8 pressure treated stud
(10) 6"x6' flat top cedar fence boards.
Good quality exterior wood glue
Large head roofing nails
Wear safety goggles when using power tools.
