Here is a flower box under construction.

This is a shot of leg blanks.
The last shot is a panel.

RE: Dahlia homes

Really nice work Viking! They're going to be great when they're stained.

What goes inside? Are you going to put a liner in them, or seal them? or just put a pot inside?


RE: Dahlia homes

I paint the insides heavly and the bottom of the legs. I put several coats of bull eye shalack on the out side. We love the look of natural wood. Then I dump potting soil in. They get quite heavy when the soil is wet. I us a refegerator cart to move them.

RE: Dahlia homes

Handsome containers, Viking. Shellack and water are not good friends as any standing water droplets will make the finish milky. Is the "Bulls Eye" a modern uptake on the substance or are you just very careful when you water?

Again, very pretty!
