After my start-and-stop experience of attempting to cut the wood for the planters in an off-the-cuff manner, I realized that I would have to do some planning before I began cutting. The good thing is that increments of 8, 12 and 16 fit well on a 48″x96″ plywood sheet.
As you can see in the picture below, I’ve mapped out my cuts based on size and overall number of pieces needed. I feel like I’ll be taking a leap of faith, hoping everything goes to plan. I guess we’ll find out soon enough. (Hey, I never claimed to be a good carpenter. =) )
