As a school project, we had to design a module that combined urban gardening and events on the rooftop of Budafabriek, Kortrijk Belgium,  which accommodates a FabLab (BudaLab) and different organisations, as well as event-space. It had to be easy-to-make, from readily available parts.

As a result, we came up with extruded equilateral triangles with a sac to hald earth & plants.
These modules are stackable, moveable, made from cheap timber, screws, PVC and elastic bands.
They can be used as planters, but also as bar tables and stools.

.
If you have a pallet at home, the timber can easily be substituted for pallet wood (one side is 60cm, a europallet is 120*80cm).

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR 1 MODULE?

MATERIAL
3 Wooden planks 18*93 mm
36 Screws
PVC pipe diam 32mm, 1m
Elastic bands
Varnish

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR THE GARDENING BAG

MATERIAL

Anti-rooting textile

TOOLS
-Wood saw (hand, band or circular saw are all good)
Chisel or grater
Brush or paint roller
Sewing machine
Square
Tape measure
Drill incl. philipshead bit & drills (diam. 4mm (predrilling) and 10mm) (preferable cordless > screwing)
Pencil
Sanding paper (for example grades 120-220-600)

Step 1: Sawing & drilling

Saw the wood to length and drill the holes.

Tips
Drill with a small drillbit first (for example 4mm), then from the front with a 10mm bit. This should fit 2 pieces of elastic band. Placing a leftover piece of wood underneath while drilling greatly reduces splintering at the end.


 

Slick design!
