Introduction: DIY Succulent Planter

关于:我真的喜欢制作东西......

我们大多数人都有一部分或两个胶合板躺在那里,对于大多数项目来说都是太小的。但是,你可以抓住一些这些,让他们的凉爽倾斜的大农场主...这是一个伟大的初学者项目,因为它需要非常基本的木工。它也很棒,因为你可以拿走所有这些杂色的胶合板,并使它们有用并有用。假日季节在我们身上,这些多汁种植者可能是一个非常漂亮的圣诞礼物......

用品:

  • Plywood scraps
    • Mine were approximately 120x90x16 mm...
  • Table saw/mitre saw/band saw
  • Some kind of sander
  • 钻孔机
  • 木材胶水
  • 3D打印机(可选)

Step 1: Glue the Pieces Together

Firstly, we need to make a bigger block out of the plywood scraps.

Put enough wood glue on to nicely cover the mating surfaces, clamp the pieces together and let it dry. I ended up with a piece that is approximately 120x90x90 mm.

Step 2: Cut the Rough Shape

现在,是时候使用锯切割播种机的粗糙形状了。我使用桌子锯并将刀片设置为一个角度。确切的角度真的无关紧要,因为我们仅仅试图制作一个有吸引力的角度块,只是将它设置为正确的看法。这样,我们可以很快粗略地粗糙。该步骤也可以用斜切锯或频带锯完成。

The piece we are working with is fairly small, therefore, at times your hands might be too close to the saw blade. I would recommend clamping the workpiece down instead of holding it with your hand and definitely use a push stick.

Step 3: Drilling the Hole

This succulent planter will hold a ⌀ 49 mm plant pot, so we are drilling a hole in the centre with a 50 mm Forstner bit 40 mm deep. Even though you might be able to do it with a cordless drill, a drill press is the best tool for the job. The workpiece needs to be adequately secured eider way, definitely use two clamps or vice with soft jaws.

Step 4: Sanding It Smooth

现在我们可以沙子挤出多汁植物。在这一步中,您可以基本上使用您拥有的任何砂光工具。我开始使用浮桥和80个网格砂纸。我清理了表面,以删除任何锯片,并添加了一些额外的倒角,使其看起来不错。然后所有的表面都与随机轨道砂光机和180个网格砂纸砂磨平滑。最后,我用手动使用600栅格砂纸轻轻砂土。

Step 5: Applying the Finnish

The last step is to apply the finish. You can basically use anything you have got on hand. I applied linseed oil because in my opinion it gives a nice contrast to the lines and makes it look great. Arguably, varnish or spray lacquer would protect the planter from moisture better. However, as you don't really need to water these plants a lot anyway, this should not be a problem.

Step 6: Making Plant Pots

I decided to 3D print the plant pots out of PLA. It is just a hollow cylinder with an outer diameter of 49 mm and 40 height. I printed at 225 °C on the nozzle which is quite hot for PLA, this should ensure that the pots are watertight.

例如,如果您无法访问3D打印机,则可以获得这些不锈钢在亚马逊的镜头并用它们作为植物盆。

Step 7: We Are DONE

There we go! We have taken something that was a piece of trash and made something useful out of it. A lovely succulent planter that lights up any space you put it in.

    That's some nice work. I try to keep scraps around but eventually they're too small to do anything with and organization gets more complicated as the pieces get smaller. You have a nice artistic touch, too.

    I thought the same thing. I had it on my list to clean out my scrap bin tonight. Now I'll be making a bunch of these rather than having my annual New Year scrap wood BBQ. Nice Instructable and good use of all but the littlest bits of wood.

    Question18天前

    Very cool, and a timely need at home!
    Does anyone have a suggestion on a finish that won't "out-gas" and harm the plants?
    We have enough trouble with keeping succulents alive as it is, without adding solvents into the mix.

    Vegetable oil?

    谢谢!

    我看着亚马逊的镜头 - 它们是锥形的。然而,透明,琥珀色和蓝色有各种小塑料和玻璃容器,其中一些列为2盎司和(我相信)2“直径。
    I suppose that one could accommodate the tapered shot glasses by noting the depth required and the diameter of the shot glass a quarter-inch or so above the bottom and drilling a hole to fit that diameter (USING A DRILL PRESS OR LATHE SETUP) and, then, enlarge the hole using a bit sized to match the diameter of the top of the shot glass - just under the rim - drilling down to the 'top' of the first hole.
    I suppose one could assemble a series of Forstner bits and drill several holes that would result in a sort of circular staircase effect that would comport to the tapered sides of the shot glasses - but that's a whole lot of work!

    Hi, thank you for the tip, this would definitely work. However, I did a little experiment and I think that a single hole should work well in this case. You just drill a hole of such a diameter and depth that your shot glass rests on the bottom of the hole and the rim of the shot glass is slightly above the top surface of the planter for easy removal. It really doesn't matter IMHO if there is a bit of clearance between the shot glass and the hole in diameter because these planters will just sit on a table and it doesn't need to be a tight fit...
    我会亲自使用50毫米40毫米深的钻孔。射门玻璃边缘应最终上方约10毫米,因为它是布鲁斯不锈钢,我认为看起来很好。
