Here’s a planter box you can make for around . I used 2x4s and garden edging (bender board). This will rot away sooner than other types of wood, but for 20 bucks, I’ll just build another one when this finally rots! Or course, you can use these same techniques on teak or cedar if you wanted something more permanent. More on this project: —————- Woodworking For Mere Mortals.

    That looks like it would hold a lot of dirt and that bottom looks thin to me for the weight it will need to hold. How did it hold up?

    Instead of cutting the cross pieces you could of left them at 18 & 3/4" and made a outside table.

  • dvaone11 1 year ago

    I love it and always want to make my own because don't realy like the one at the store
    , but it's not easy like you said if you don't gave all the tools, like the saw table etc.
    Nice, inexpensive and easy for those who have all the tools needed.:-(
