Step 1: Take apart the boards
Step 2: Cutting boards into uniform lengths
Step 3: Sanding the boards
Step 4: Attach the basic box boards
Begin by putting a small line of wood glue (Titebond II works really well and it is water/weatherproof) on the ends of the small shelves and attach them inside the long pieces, as shown in the photo. Clamp lightly if desired, while inserting the center dividers.
Step 5: Insert the dividing pieces
Be sure to remember a small ribbon of wood glue at each of the small divider ends. Clamp everything tightly! Wipe off any excess glue before it dries. Allow to dry for a couple of hours.
Step 6: Add nails
Step 7: Add the bottom boards
When planting in this planter, be sure to use a layer of rocks, packing peanuts, or small clay/ceramic pieces on the bottom for better drainage.
