Marble Planters

Sand the Tiles The marble tiles I bought from the Home Depot had a high gloss finish. I'm not the biggest fan of high gloss finishes, so I used 400 grit paper on my orbital sander to give the stone more of a natural honed finish. I also smoothed down the edges of the tiles.

Cut the Tile I set up the saw and filled the reservoir with water. The water keeps the blade from getting too hot and also keeps the dust under control. I set the rip fence to about 3.75” and cut strips of the tile. It was really easy, but you can’t go too fast. I just tried to slowly feed the stone through the saw and let the blade do the work. For the longer 24-inch tiles, it might be nice to have an extra set of hands to catch the long pieces as they're pushed through. I cut 5 pieces to assemble a long box.

Glue the Pieces Together I used liquid nails to glue the pieces together. I didn’t want to have to clean off excess adhesive off the exterior, so I tried to be careful not to use too much adhesive. Gorilla 2-part epoxy also works well, but is a bit more expensive. Make sure to evenly spread the adhesive on the edges and wipe off any excess adhesive.

爱动手
Clamp It Together For the first planter, I used C-clamps and screwed them a little too tight, which caused a small crack in one of the planters. The crack was small, so I was able to seal it from the inside with liquid nails. For the second planter, I used rubber bands to hold the pieces together and that worked really well.

Sand the Edges The edges for one of the planters were a bit sharp, so I put a drum sander in my drill and rounded them down.

Put in Some Plants I didn’t want to put drainage holes in the planters, so I put about 3/4" of gravel in the bottom before filling them with soil and plants. I decided to use decorative plants and won't put in edible plants until I'm done researching non-toxic adhesives and/or am able to figure out a way to mechanically fasten the tiles together.
