This is my first instructable,
I designed these (well not really designed), more cobbled together, when i was looking for uses for the off cuts of pallets that i didn't reuse for the climbing frame ive made.
So yeah it took like 30 mins per one. cost about 50p.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools and Ting.
I used a mitre saw because im lazy and crap at sawing wood straight.
16mm spade bit to make a drainage hole.
belt sander (again, because im lazy)
End of a pallet
piece of wood which can serve as a base
Step 2: Construction.
Its fairly self explanatory. I sanded down all the surfaces with a 40 grit sanding belt.
cut two pieces of wood the size of the holes. They aren't perfectly straight but it doesnt really matter.
Drilled two holes in each one after i screwed them in place.
Step 3: Wang a Bit of Varnish on It.
just something to postpone the rotting process, which is inevitable but at least it looks ok and fits onto a window.
fill with soil and seeds.
its a window sill herb garden made from a bit of an old pallet!!
