I have finished the boat planter (well almost – I still want to paint the inside of it). It is made from 1.5mm stainless steel sheet with a mast, boom, bowsprit and tiller made with stainless steel rod. I will post a picture up shortly but, of course, it doesn’t look quite right without any flowers in it. I have wondered about adding some kind of sail arrangement but I’m not sure what material to use. Fine stainless steel mesh would give a nice texture but the problem is how to ‘seal’ the cut edges of the mesh so that there are not lots of sharp bits of wire exposed.
