Grab a log first. White pine works really well for this type of project because the wood is soft and easy to work with. Then you’ll need a chain saw to cut lines into the log. To pry out those pieces, use a screwdriver and a hammer. Once you have enough open space, you can put in soil and plant your flowers!
