Learn how to build a hexagon out of inexpensive lumber, then fill it with your favorite plants for an eye-catching outdoor display.
Planters are traditionally round, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play with the angles of your outdoor decor. Your plants will be just as happy in these six-sided geometric planters, and the wooden boxes add visual interest to your porch or yard. All you need is a compound miter saw to cut the wood and some wood glue to assemble them into a hexagon shape. You can make your planter as large or as small as you'd like based on available lumber and the size of your plant—just cut your six wood pieces a longer length. When you’re finished, stain or paint your planter box with your favorite color, or leave it natural with a clear coat of weatherproof spar urethane.
