Ratio Planters

Simple and versatile design for balcony planters based on the Golden Ratio


This was a real fun project to build. I was reminded how much I missed working with wood. However, if I do this build again I would not use pine. Easy to work with and cheap but boy does in fall apart fast. Even with weatherproof staining being exposed to all that moisture and dirt and plant roots... Perhaps I'll use a synthetic wood material next time.
