Check out my log pots I found at Hobby Lobby. They look real. I don't know why the photo posts sideways though.

I don't know what it is. It feels like ceramics. They feel very well made. They are for indoors/outdoors. I'll plant cactus or something similar in them.

Ceramic, what is the weight of the pot? I am asking because there are some very good imitation wood works in concrete.
Windows Live Photo Gallery. It rights up the image and remembers it but when you upload it sends it up the original way around, sideways. To get around it you have to save the image again the right side up with a different file number. Then post the saved image. Other imaging programs may also be doing that.
Regards,
Arif.

I find that type of container fascinating, but to buy them is out of the question. Sad

These pots cost less than ten dollars. I thought it was a bargain. I don't think I could make one cheaper. LOL.

He sure did. I would buy it for that price. Those big cement ones are in the hundreds of dollars.

Hypertufa! Lovey dubby (I would totally buy one for up to $15 but Seattle tends to be a pricey place to shop for this type of thing!)

Need a mold Whistling MS will work. Two part mold would be better, inner and outer. The wood texture could be worked on the MS which would be the outer. The inner could be made of tin. Not much wear and tear should last a life time. Huum, would be expensive now lets see. Do they still teach woodwork in seventh grade Blinking must be. Mold out of packing wood sounds better and cheaper. Ingenuity required and an aptitude, now where to find that Whistling . Chicken coop wire molded in die then concrete poured in. Ahhh! To difficult a concept to explain. Forget it lets go back to nice and comfy bed. Sounds even better Sticking tongue out .

Arif.

Nopes honestly, I sleep quite well, maybe I might have been muttering to myself though. Playing with plants has made me into a pretty good mutterer instead of a lullaby singer.
