One of the first thing I like work on for spring is the garden. Basically… I am always working in the garden… for me the best place at home is the garden...
And it can be sometimes a difficult task because our garden is full of green and vegetables, so you can imagine all the work we have every year to clean that up…
I wanted the design here to be very simple so that the viewers could easily recreate the same with the provided free plan: Click here...
Here I am making mine out of 4 pieces of lumbers of 2,3m long, 20 cm large and 3 cm thick but you can use whatever wood you want as you are the boss of your creation.
-First make a cut all the side and bottom slats
-Then laid your slat on a table ( i don’t know if you remember but this table is the same one I have used to make the Shou sugi ban wood burning technique, if you want to learn more on that feel free to check the article about it)
-Take the measurement for the top and bottom rails, then back to the minor saw (make sure to always double check that cut before rip them in half on the table saw
- Alright so let’s assemble this side: mark 3 cm on each side then line up the side pieces and attach
- Mark 3 cm from the bottom of the bottom rail then again attach.
And here you are with a Nice and DIY wooden planter box!
The learning here for this project is the attached top side here which I cut too short at 60 cm and it’s given me the gap the you see here, which isn’t a big problem but I will advise you to make all cuts for the attached top and bottom at 66cm to have a perfect square at the end...
Simple, beautiful and effective!!!
