Today decided to do a little project.

My chinese fan palm recently planted in an old washing machine drum as a pot. the drum itself weighs 50 lbs along with about 3 cubic feet of soil. it weighs in at about 100lbs total!

Made a dolly to scoot the pot around to water and what not. a single 12ft piece of 1x4 pine was used. along with 4 casters and some exterioir wood screws. treated the pine with a wood preservative.

dimensions are 2ft x 2ft

Hmmm Easy enough [thumb] maybe just cutting a pallet in 1/2 or just putting wheels on a pallet to hold several plants would work too!
