My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Sherrilyn Askew!!!
Sherrilyn Askew (Sherri, #1350) has received a certificate of achievement in Make it Easy for earning a Beginner Level Make It! Merit Badge!
“I obtained a used toolbox on wheels, cleaned it up, and stored my tools inside, making sure I labeled the drawers with the types of tools within.
I also made a planter out of cedar.
Having the tools on wheels is very handy, as projects are often done based on space available.
I also learned that cedar is a soft wood that will split if you put the screws in too deep, but the drill has speed settings. Once I slowed the drill down, things went much better. (Drilling holes first did not stop it from splitting.)
My daughter and I made the first one together, then I made the second one. I am going to line them both with plastic, then plant my garlic in them.”
Sherrilyn, congratulations on your cedar plant boxes for your garlic! They turned out really nice and will be perfect for next season’s gardening. I think they would also be pretty with lots of pansies and petunias in them as well. The cedar wood will age well too.
Congratulations on making your cedar planters! Sounds perfect for your garlic.
