In this episode I experiment using my new tile saw to cut stone tile from home depot into strips that can be glued together to form planters. I am always interested in introducing new materials and for a long time I have wanted to add marble and slate to the list of materials I am comfortable working with. This project is really easy and materials to make it are surprisingly inexpensive. The result is a minimalist and modern planter that is made from real stone!
