Continuing my theme of having too many containers, I present my latest additions to my garden:
|Redwood boxes with finger joints|
|A little wood glue helped stabilize the joints while this was being built.|
Jordan confessed that the first box he built was actually easier because the redwood he used was straighter. The second box required a lot more shaving, sanding, and salty language to complete.
I really enjoy having pieces in my yard that were made by friends. For one, it’s a nice reminder that I am surrounded by gifted people who are willing to share their talents. But it’s also nice because it saves me money while also providing a little extra money for my friends.
|One of these will house a dwarf Japanese maple called 'Murasaki Kiyohime'. |
I'll post a picture when it leafs out.
You’ll have to excuse me now. I’m off to see if I can make friends with someone who knows how to weld.
