In the video I use cut nails to assemble the boxes. Prior to the 1920s cut nails were used for all construction and furniture making. They were replaced by the modern day wire nail, which is far less effective at holding together two pieces of wood. You’ll notice in the video how well the cut nails clamp the wood together.

    On the patio I have six very large planters where I did something similar to this. I lined each with a plastic tarp stapled in place around the top, just like you have the plastic sheeting. The tarps are reinforced with fabric which I thought would be good as my planters are larger than the one in the video. Then I have an 1 1/4" plastic pipe sealed into the tarp that carries the water away so it doesn't land on the patio ( you can't ordinarily see the back of my planters) The planter is then filled with a layer of drain rocks which is separated from the earth above it with a layer of landscaping fabric. That way the earth doesn't clog up the drain rock. It may be overkill but it works great. I keep thinking that I ought to make a video of how it's made and how the pipe is sealed to the tarp etc.

    Great job with yours BTW!

    95° is hot!, but hey at least you got a shop I’m outside in the Alabama heat which lasts time I was building which is like every day it was like 105° on the heat index. Your work is awesome only thing I am wondering is how did you start off selling your products because I am fourteen and have a few years experience, built up my collection of tools table saw to bandsaws, am making some money, but I still would like to have more costumers just wondering how you started. Thanks I really enjoy your videos!

    Nice boxes. Just an idea: putting a liner in them would have saved the wood from swelling so much.
