Makes a good planter.

Re: Wheelbarrow made from fence slats.

Beautiful work once again, @BillN. I'm always amazed to see our creative members use of rough sawn timber on finished projects. Does it take you much time to sand the timber smooth and get that sort of result?

 

What do you plan on planting in it?

 

Many thanks for sharing.

I was lucky with the timber, it was already quite dry when I brought it from Bunnings. Just left it a few more days . My wife likes the planting part.

Looks awesome! Did you line it so timber won't rot?

Hi @annieerbs,

 

Let me mention @BillN, so they are alerted to your question about whether the timber was lined. The palings are already H3 treated for exterior use, but I'd also be interested in knowing whether it is lined and, if not, has there been any signs of decay.

Re: Wheelbarrow made from fence slats.

Hi, the timber was H3 treated,  we did line the inside with the potting mix bag used to fill the wheelbarrow . Also drilled drainage holes in the bottom of the bag and wheelbarrow.
