This time I show how to make modern DIY geometric succulent planters using simple woodworking skills. This is unlike many of my other DIY projects, because I’m re-creating a planter design made by someone else, rather than making my own design. I bought a set of similar planters on Etsy (from Revolution Design House, link below) about 5 years ago. Since they no longer sell these, and I have got a lot of requests from subscribers to show how to make these, I figured it was time to reverse engineer these and make some new ones for a build video.
These modern DIY succulent planters are a fairly easy woodworking project that you can make in a single day. These geometric planters are also something you could batch out to sell at a craft fair. Each set of planters is made from a single 3x3 wood turning block (make sure to get one at least 12”-14” long). The planter liners are inexpensive steel condiment / sauce cups you can get on Amazon (link below). Alternatively, you can 3D print planter liners if you have a 3D printer (email me for the .STL file).
The design of the geometric planters focuses on the continuous grain through all three planters, which is the result of cutting all the planters from a single piece of wood (I used maple and walnut). I painted the ends with spray paint, which really highlights the faceted geometric shapes of the planters.
