I didn't know what was making when I spied this small chunk of reclaimed barn wood in my stash, but soon an idea came to me. I built a box for it, but still wasn't sure what it should be used for until I spotted my kitchen herbs--a planter!
I built a simple, 3 sided box, using the nail gun to assemble it and attach to this awesome piece of wood.
Small hills drilled in the bottom of the box ensure proper drainage. But this would be cute in a bathrooom or as a book older in a kid's room.
