Victoran, make sure you boost the pots up off the ground with spacers (don't block the drain hole!), or move the pots every season. If the pots are resting on the ground, the tree roots will migrate up through the drain holes and into the pots. I was called out to troubleshoot a container garden that had 1/2-inch tree roots coming up through the bottom. They had been in the same place for a couple of years.

RollingPlanter.com. i like your ethos. Makes sense to have rolling containers until you know how much sun your favorite plants need.

And here I thought my children were the only ones who chewed on furniture ;-) Mine liked leather belts too! LOVE the shelf. Very simple, easy to make and looks nice, thank you!

very cool - but careful with too much weight on top as this structure might collapse with no supporting brackets on the bottom. Most tables like this will have additional support to keep the table from leaning over to the right or left - could easily add these with cheap $2 furring strips to the inside back of the piece, maybe 6" down from the top, and another strip 6" up from the bottom. (could even spray paint those gold as well)
