Planter Made From Used Coconut

Introduction: Planter Made From Used Coconut

About: I am a hobist with lots of hobies from carpentry to mechanics. There is hardly any thing that i am not interested in.

India ( Asian countries) have ample coconuts. Mostly used for the sweet tender flesh inside. Some are dried husked and used for longer storage. We buy them in bulk and use them for eating, scrapping, using the milk for cooking and many more. But the shells are scrapped. I personally store and use them in barbecues. Got this new use of the shells.
