From: Danmade

Materials and Tools:

1/2” x 10’ copper pipe
1x10 x 4’ poplar wood
hand saw
jig saw
drill
speed square
permanent marker
1/2” drill bit
pipe cutter
scissors
3/16” sisal rope
(2) 4” terra cotta pots
(1) 4” terra cotta dish

Cut Wood

Measure and mark 1x10 poplar wood at 10” with a pencil. Use a speed square and pencil to make a straight line on the 10” mark. Cut wood using a hand saw. Repeat to make three wood planks at 10”.

Cut Out Circles

On two of the planks, place the terra cotta dish upside down in the center. Trace using a pencil. Drill a hole inside of the circle using a 1/2-inch drill bit, and cut out circle using a jig saw.

Drill Holes in Corners

On all three planks, measure in 1” from each corner and mark with a plus sign in all four corners. Drill holes in all four corners using a 1/2-inch drill bit.

Cut Piping

Measure and mark 1/2-inch copper piping at 10” using a permanent marker. Cut on mark using a pipe cutter. Repeat to create a total of eight 10-inch pieces of 1/2-inch copper piping.

Cut Rope

Cut 3/16-inch sisal rope at 96”. Repeat to create a total of 4 ropes at 96”. Tie a knot at the end of all four ropes.

Assemble Planter

Slide the four ropes through the solid wood plank without the circle cut out. Slide the 10” pieces of 1/2-inch copper pipe onto each rope. Slide the rope through all four corners of the next plank, followed by the pipe. Repeat these steps for the last plank.
