How to ‘Do it With Ozito’
Measure 220mm from one end of the length of timber board and mark a line. Using a mitre saw cut along the marked line.
Repeat this step to create 2 x 220mm lengths & 2 x 120mm lengths.
Clamp timber pieces together with the longer lengths making the top and smaller lengths making the sides.
Using the drill driver with 3mm drill bit, drill pilot holes through the top and bottom pieces into the sides.
Swap the drill bit for the PH2 bit. Using the 40mm screws, screw the sides of the plant holder together.
Mark a circle the same size as the rim of your pot plant on the top piece of timber. Check out our video for a cool tip on how to make your own compass to achieve a perfect circle.
With a 6mm drill bit on the drill, create a hole on the inside edge of the circle.
Insert the blade of the jigsaw into the 6mm hole. Ensure the base plate of the jigsaw is flat on the timber surface and slowly cut around the marked circle. You may need to re-clamp the plant holder to the bench in different positions to complete the cut.
Clean up any rough edges on the timber with a sander.
Place your pot with plant into the hole and you’re done! For more effect, create additional pieces of the holder to stack them together. You can protect the timber with a coat of paint or varnish.
