Find free pallets from Craigslist. If not available, you can purchase them locally for very little money. When searching through the pallet stack, look for the pallets with the most usable wood. The length of the slats is ~ 3 feet. The thickness varies from ½ to ¾ thick. The width of the slats can vary from 2.5 to 6 inches.

Looks great! Did you fill the planters direct with soil or do they have pots inside them?

Thanks. There are large pots inside the boxes.
Nice planter box. You make it look so easy in your video. Thanks for sharing your plans!

Thanks. I'm glad it looked easy but it really took more time than I would like to admit. I was SO tempted to go buy clean/straight wood from Home Depot after getting whacked in the head from a flying pallet board. Note that the second set of plans is for the person that would like to build the project from purchased wood.

Well it turned out really nice. I might try the plans for straight boards then. Thanks!
