Step 1: Gather Materials

soft wood log

Coconut shells

TotumoJig saw

carving tools


Step 2: Shrink Planter.

I cutted a piece of log of 15 cms, drilled some holes and remove the interior with carving tools, then I soften the interior of the log with some rough sand paper. Finnally I draw the bottom of the shrink planter and soften the bottom of the pot.

Step 3: Coconut and Totumo Planter

This is so funny, for accident I just left the coconut in the fridge for two nights and it just broked in half. I just had to remove the pulp of the coconut with a spoon. For the totumo planter I just drilled in the bottom of the toumo in order to let the water flows out I hope you like it rated and vote
