The $10 Herringbone Planter – Low Cost High Profit – Make Money Woodworking | The $10 Herringbone Planter – Low Cost High Profit – Make Money Woodworking – Elegant herringbone planter for less than $10!?! Yes, the wood used in this beautiful planter box cost less than a single stick of quarter round! That’s insane. And the 30″ wide planter only cost $14! 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 another planter to help solve our problem. I call it my Herringbone picket planter. It can literally be made from 5 fence pickets or 7 for the wide one! The current price of a treated pine fence picket in my area is $1.88. And even better if you have access to used pickets!

So you can build this planter for less than $10 in wood! And these planters aren’t small. As far as what you can sell them for you’ll have to research your area. The only ones I could find online were selling for around $180 for the smaller one!!!

Some have noticed that I wear electronic hearing protection vs traditional muffs and asked why. The reason is that I need to be able to hear my machines in case there are issues as well as be aware if someone comes into my shop (I don’t want a jump scare… I like my fingers and hearing). Basically, I can listen to music (blu-tooth version), speak to people, and hear my machine… I can hear everything but at safe levels (any sound over 85 decibels is reduced). They are made for the range but perfect for the workshop! So I worked out a discount for you guys!
