STEP BY STEP

1. Cut the circular wooden base

This round pot is made up of a tire, which is where the plant will go, a wooden base and four legs made of square slats. To start creating it, cut the wooden base with a jigsaw, which will have to have the same diameter as the tire you use.

To create a circumference easily, use a strip as a compass: screw it to the wooden board and drill a hole at a distance from the center equal to the radius of the circle you want to draw. Pass a pencil through that hole and turn the ribbon on itself, tracing the circumference.

2. Drill four holes in the wooden base

Base prepared? It is time to open the holes that will allow you to screw it to the tire. Mark four equidistant holes in the wood surface, glued to the edge of the piece, and use a drill to drill them.

3. Screw the legs to the circular base

Create four equal wooden legs from a square slat and attach them to the underside of the base. Mark four equidistant points, located between the holes you made in the previous step, and screw the four legs into them, using a pair of screws per leg.
