    Yup, another good point. It will definitely bow out a little with soil. I'm hoping not too much...
    Will post pics after the weekend with soil inside.

    Or you could just weld ribs into it. Either flat stock or 1/2 angle.

    Well here it is totally complete and NO BULGING! The stems are not really strong enough to stand upright, so I stuck a broomstick in the inside corner of the pot and drilled two 3/16" holes near the top in that corner so that zip ties hold the broomstick tight in the corner. Works very well. Total cost of material was only $49. Its also bigger and nicer than any pot we saw in stores, not to mention cheaper as well. Definitely gonna build more of these bad boys.
