Make a Wooden Planter - Beginners Woodworking Course
In just three hours, you will transform a few pre-cut planks of wood into a lovely planter for your windowsill or garden. You will glue the planter together, attach the handles and secure it with brad nails before moving on to sanding and finishing.
We use a simple Jacobean wax which gives a lovely satin finish and then give it a good polish so the planter will be nice and shiny and ready to take home that evening.
Suitable for all ages and abilities with no previous woodworking experience necessary. Children from age 10 are welcome to join, but anyone under 16 must be accompanied and assisted by an adult for the duration of the course.
Please note that plants and plant pots are not included in the course.
The finished size of the planter is approximately 150 x 300xmm
