Post some pics of containment boxes....

Hi everyone!
I have a golden potted that will need a nice above ground container for the spring. I don't want it to become too root bound so I can't even get it out of the pot it is in.
It is a large clump of running bamboo and I will need a nice large "box" I guess, to contain it in.
I want to see some pics of what some of you have done with your boxes. Did you use wood? Did you line it with anything? Do they even sell plastic "Boxes" for bamboo?
I guess I would be better off building something myself?
I know you all have pics, give me inspiration for this project.(please).

RE: Post some pics of containment boxes....

Certainly you could build it out of wood or you could buy a box. Ultimately though it will be too heavy to move around without a hand cart. If building one I'd start with a plastic pallet for the frame, then build it out of wood from there. Maybe some preservative or wood treatment to reduce or prevent rot.

I know there was a guy over on BambooWeb that had purchased some larger plastic boxes for some of his bamboo.
