 Okay here is another copy of another FF members work. May not be the exact design but the idea definitely came from Bruno in NH who apparently sold many of them last year. I don't remember seeing how they are selling for him this year. I built one just before dark last night and another this morning.

  One is ash and the other is low grade walnut. I have the two outer ones loaded on the truck to take to the shop this morning to replace 2 he sold yesterday to "some little old lady who came in and bought both of them" according to the my young friend who works there who called about the 2 I had left on consignment. I don't think he thought they would sell. They are also no doubt underpriced but if I raise the price and my broker in Mississippi comes up with an updated distribution plan I will probably go into receivership. ;)

   I got out and cut this 8' log off a 16' one and sawed it up.


I stopped by our florist today and showed her a 2' planter and she decided they were too heavy so I told her I'd try making some 1' versions.


I started 3" from each end and cut out a 6" plug, skipped 6", and repeated. Since the cut out was so short I just used the chainsaw. By the the time I bore cut to get my plug I only had to cut another couple inches anyway. This is the reassembled log.


I went ahead and sawed them up into 4- 1' planters and left 2 as 2' doubles. I can cut them in half later if I find 1' planters sell better. When I finished I had one screw left so I guess I am shut down till I get back to the hardware store. I've been using 3-1/2" deck type screws with a square bit driver (You could use a big Phillips head bit). I went over and got down my last 1"X8"X8' spruce board out of stock and planed it and cut into 12" lengths to make more crates. A 12" wide X 8" high X 18" strips leaves a 12"X16" X 8" crate using my 3/8" X 2' lath strips just fits a dozen quart fruit jars. I use them all over the place for storing cookies, tools, etc. I'm low on stock so wanted some more for my weekend flea market trip. 

   I will be close to a Lowes so I'll pick up some stuff to make an outhouse for a lady in Covington VA about 60 miles away who saw my Craigslist ad and ordered one today. She wants to set it by her barn. She says it is too far from the house and no problem for the men but she needed something better. She was thinking an old style deep pit outhouse but decided on a composting toilet with just a plastic tote and sawdust under the bench. I think that will work better and she can always change it later if she doesn't like it. I'll throw in several bags of sawdust for free just because i am such a nice guy. I may have to get creative on a toilet paper holder or something to customize it even more. :D

 Here's my first try at copying y'all's planters.

 

 

 Next ones I'm going to make the ends 3" and the bottom 2" thick. The 2 I made first are too heavy  :o ;D.

Ed,

   Looks good. Did you encounter any tension issues when you put the sides back on? Sometimes I have trouble getting, usually only one side, them to lay flat. 

    If you like the rounded top look next time just cut the bottom then cut off and save the sides then cut out the centers and reattach the sides without ever cutting off the top.

   Note: Be sure you use those only for personal use because if you sell them, due to various patent requirements, you have to pay all labor and processing costs, then send half to Mississippi and half to Kansas City and make a donation to the FF. (Note to all: Jeff does not levy that fee - it is coming from other unnamed members. ;)). I had to stop making mine for a while and started making hat and coat racks instead to keep from going bankrupt. :D :D

 No  I didn't have any trouble with tension but the slabs were only 1 1/2" thick. I don't see how anyone could sell these as they are time consuming to cut out and heavy to move around :o. Rita got this one for her b-day at the end of the month and I'll make 2 more for her nieces and I think I'll steal some of y'all's other idea's  ;D for other sale items. Rita likes the coat hanger piece  8).

We had a graduation  party  this past weekend, so I decided to plagiarize my fellow forum members  work.  Got a request  to build a couple more.

@Nebraska I gotta ask. Dir you make a little 'excursion' on the design with this? Seems to me that your corners down in the bottom where the blade would start/stop is really square. Did you cut the entire center block off then slice  off the end and center dividers and re-attach? This is what I have in mind to do when I take a shot at this. I would think it would save some time but risk more re-assembly issues as noted by the experts here.
 Also, questions for Howard on the planters, I didn't notice any drain holes, what are you thoughts on that?
 I have been following right along here with the intent of giving it a try when/if I can find time to get back on the mill. But I have also been keeping my mouth shut because I notice the rapidly escalating duties, fees, and licensing requirements. ;D :D :)
 What kind of glue(s) are y'all using?

 My planters are pretty ugly looking and all 3 of Rita's nieces want one. I put another pine log on the mill then found out I put it on wrong ( butt First ) went to start the mill and the rope broke so I gave up and went to the house and layed on the hot pad  :( .

 @Old Greenhorn  I just took the taper and some of the rotten sapwood off of the bottom so it would sit level,  the back side is the same way. Then squared a cant out of the center. I trimmed the dividers  with a fairly  sharp chainsaw. I used Elmer's Gorilla glue look alike (because  that's what the little hardware store in town has)
and six inch coated rss screws. I will add holes in the bottom to place stoppers in so I can drain it.  Debating about finishing  the inside with a paraffin  or bees wax mixture or just leave it to breath. In a month or so I will soak the outside with Viking paint.

Nebraska,

   Looks good and I really like the top. I also wondered if the divider was still permanently connected to the bed as it is awful square and looks like it was added back afterwards.

    When I cut the centers out of mine with the mill I'd get short 1" boards. Not worth it on a 1' planter with a 6" opening so I just cut all that with a chainsaw. When using the mill on the last cut I'd leave the blade spinning and raise slowly to help even out the cut at that end up all still had a little slope to them.

Tom,

   I did not install drain holes. The sides generally were not water tight and would allow for some drainage although when wet I understand they will swell and close that gap. The soft wood is pretty porous and is going to wick away a good bit of any standing water. If that is not enough the owner will have to drill a few more holes in the bottom as needed. 

   I guess we could seal around the seams and sell them as pet water troughs for people with more money than sense. I'm thinking high end horse owners or an old hippy chick customer of mine with a pet miniature donkey, sheep, pot-bellied pigs, assorted fowl, etc. She is living with a redneck boyfriend with Plott hounds and Pit bulls and a large gun collection. It is very rewarding to see the hippies and the rednecks finally getting together.
