I had a left over slab of the stump that I made into a table.
I kept looking at it trying to figure out what I could do with it.
It was a interesting piece of wood.
This is what I came up with.
A planter.
Below are the details.

 This was the slab cut off the top of my stump.

I used old screen and a plant tray to complete the planter.
Pretty stuff, huh?

I decided to use succulents because they don't use much water
plus they are slow growing.

I stapled some screen over the hole on the bottom,
then secured the tray over the screen.
I added holes to the tray for drainage.
I used the tray on the bottom for two reasons.
One to hold in the dirt and two, to elevate the planter a little.

Now just turn it over and add dirt.

Here's the finished planter.
Of course sweet Maggie had to photo bomb the picture. :)

I added a few stones in the bare spots.
I ended up putting it on our open back porch.

It will get sun but no water when it rains.
I think it turned out really well.

And one called to another:
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts;
His glory fills the whole earth.
Isaiah 6:3
