Hello all.. Its Saturday Feb 13th the day before Valentines Day and I’ve been very very busy building for spring.. The orders pile up quickly. I’m making raised garden beds. But I’m making from reclaimed CLEAN pallets. Its not hard to find the clean ones just ask the businesses that your look at. They will […]
Hello everyone !! Well after some trial and error I came up with a suitable way to make raised bowl holders that i can easily customize.
I haven’t done it with this particular job but it all a process. You have to try and fail in order to learn and succeed.
I had a client request for a large bowl with a bowl diameter – 9 3/4 in., chest height – 14 in.
I’ll explain how i got such a large diameter hole done in another post, but the solution was a little creative 🙂
For the frame i used 2×4’s. For the top rails i used 2×2’s . It had to support the large diameter holes so the wood wouldn’t cave in. Then i just finished off the sides with 1×4’s. I burned all the wood as per clients request.
I also only used screws and non toxic glue. I didn’t fill the holes as it kept the rough look. I also sanded down with 220 grit sand paper to give the whole unit a soft smooth finish.
