Step 1: Supplies

Materials Needed:
  • 2 X 4 X 8, ~ 115" total
  • (8) 2 1/2" #8 wood screws (I chose to use black oxide because I liked the color)
  • (32) 3/4" #8 pan head screws (also in black oxide)
  • Steel sheeting (~3/32"), enough to cut out (2) 9.5" X 50" rectangles
  • Variety of moss*
  • (2) 8qt bags of potting soil
  • Chicken wire (1" weave) ~ 9" X 47" 
  • Spray bottle

Tools Used:
  • Jointer (optional)
  • Planer (optional)
  • Chop Saw
  • Router
  • Rotary Sander
  • Drill
  • Tin Snips/Wire Cutter
*I purchased a moss variety online for $40, which seemed semi-affordable. You can also find moss in your backyard or forage for it in the forrest. Local nurseries might have moss for a bit cheaper as well.

Great idea. I think I've found one of my first projects for the new CNC.
