Default Yardart/planter

I guess this is a good place to put this. My wife wanted me to build her a planter of sorts that was a little different from the "norm" , nothing fancy but with some old barnwood and scrap steel i had , i came up with this. She is perty happy with it. It also rolls and steers so she can use it to pull around the yard.

Thanks folks , much appreciated.

I enjoy makin something out of things most folks would consider useless, making something that tickles my best friend is just a bonus, and even if it did suck she wouldn't tell me.

I can pull it around behind my golf cart so no harness for me needed YET.

The body is 5' long, 2'wide and 42" to the top of the seat back & I might just build me one of those Kristis I been hearing about so much about, I think I have an old tub around somewhere.

That is really neat. Might try something like that when I run out of the current project list which should last a couple of decades.
