Here’s my planter box. I built this planter box from my own design. I wanted a simple yet modern styled planter box. I was originally going to build planter boxes from wine barrels, however I felt that was not original for this application. So this is what I came up with. I started by cutting 2×4 lumber into 8 sections 17-1/4″ long. I then cut 4×4 into 4 pieces, each 24″ in length. I attached the 2×4’s to the 4×4’s by using a jointing jig with 1-1/4″ wood screws. The top 2×4’s are level with the top of the 4×4’s and the bottom 2×4’s are 20-1/4″ from the top. This allows a recessed area for the casters I will attach later. Once the frame was together I put together a base using leftover pieces of 2×4 cut to 22″ and screwed to the bottom of the frame. I used 1×4 pine for the trim. Each piece of this trim was cut to 24″ with a 45 degree angle. The trim was attached to the frame using a brad nailer and glue. To finish off the sides I cut fence boards to 24″ and nailed them to the sides with the brad nailer. I wanted to the planter easy to move, so I attached four 2″ casters to the base of the planter. Each one of these casters came with a 120 pound weight limit each, I figure a 480 pound capacity is more than enough. Everything was coated with water sealer and I installed soil fabric on the inside of the planter box to keep everything together. Overall I think the planter turned out good. The planter is very sturdy and well equipped to handle years of abuse. Please visit us at www.diyhoneydo.com and please subscribe! Video Rating: / 5 […]
