Step 1: Making It

I install two tires one upon the other one,screw them to two 4.5 x4.5 cm x1.80mts ,on the uper side goes screwed a palet wood,on the middle of the wood hanging a pulley and a tin bucket.
Inside the tires goes the empty paint bucket with a double bottom and a 15cm tall tube to recharge water,a handfull of cotton thread as a wick to convert the bucket in a self-wattering planter.
Covered the tires with3/8 tongue and grooves nailed to the tires

Coloque dos ruedas de auto usadas una sobre otra,las atornillé a dos varas de 4.5 x 4.5cm x 1.80mts arriba puse una madera de palet como travesaño,una polea vieja de alternador y de ella colgué un balde de chapa en desuso.
Dentro de las ruedas puse un tacho de pintura con doble fondo para convertirlo en maceta autoregante,antes de llenarlo con tierra puse un tubo blanco de 15cm de diametro para recargar el agua y un manojo de hilo de algodon que haga de mecha entre el doble fondo con agua y la tierra de la planta
Recubrí las ruedas con machihembre para paredes(rescatado de una remodelacion de casa)

Step 2: Fitting the Bucket in the Tires

Cut a ring from the circular support of a washing machine to fit the bucket inside the tires,this let us install the bucket becomed in self watering planter

Corté un aro del soporte plastico de un lavarropas que haga de soporte al tacho dentro de la rueda

Step 3: Detail of the Tongue and Groove

With the help of a dish or compass draw a semicircle on the width of two wooden plank,on the upper midle draw somekind of ascendent wave that will give a nice finish to the wooden coverage.

Con la ayuda de alguna tapa o compas dibujar un semicirculo en el ancho de dos tablas,en la mitad superior dibujar una onda ascendente q le da una linda terminacion al machimbre

Step 4: Finishing

And the last step is staining the woods and painting the buckets .Hope you like it

Y el ultimo paso seria pintar los baldes y maderas .Espero que guste
