The $6 Planter – Low Cost High Profit – Make Money Woodworking

Yes, you can build this beautiful planter box for less than the cost of a single 2×4. So we all have a problem right now with our woodworking business or side hustle… the price of lumber is out of control. Well, I designed this planter to help solve our problem. I call it my 3 picket planter. It can literally be made from 3 fence pickets! The current price of a treated fence picket in my area is $1.99. And even better if you have access to used pickets!

So you can build this planter for around $6! And these planters aren’t small. As far as what you can sell them for you’ll have to research your area. I know what the big box stores are getting and it’s crazy high.
