After finishing my fluted dresser last week, I decided that I wanted to use the leftover pole wrap to make a fluted vase and fluted planter sleeve.
– liquid nails or Loctite – pole wrap – pipe, can or glass – miter saw, compound miter saw or table saw – wood clamps – box cutter – toothpicks – sander
To make the fluted planter sleeve sturdy I used a large plumbing pipe part/coupling because it isn't tapered towards the bottom and has the same circumference at the top and bottom.
The was an uneven part in the center that was easily sanded down and removed with my orbital sander.
I used the coupling as a guide to see where I had to cut the pole wrap.
I used my compound miter saw to cut the pole wrap but I’m pretty sure you can use a standard miter saw as well and cut it by hand if the saw is nice and sharp with fine teeth.
