Default Miss Kate's Planter

I was asked to make a planter for a neighbor in Oak Park before we moved back to New Mexico. I agreed but knew it had to be made of wood that could stand up to the near constant rain and snow of the area. So cedar was my natural choice.

Many planters in the area simply rest across or on the brick or concrete extrusions. I wanted something different. I also wanted to add some carving to enhance the planter.

This particular cedar was like carving cardboard. The wood was solid but it was just very difficult to carve for some reason.

Anyway, Miss Kate was delighted with her new planter and in the end, that's really all that matters.
