Introduction: Garden Planters
Here Is a build I did for one of my neighbours. It was her 80th Birthday and she loves being in the Garden, So I thought I would make these for her.These are pretty straightforward to make. I have not put any dimensions here as I make these in six different sizes, and built to the size of the inner trough bought at the time. I started with straight slats cut to length x 8 per box then the two angled edges.that the slats are fixed to. Make the eight legs and cut the angles 4 at a time on the chop saw top and bottom. Fixing the slats to the end parts with exterior glue and screws.
While I was waiting for the glue to set I made Four large hearts and four small hearts for the design, They serve three purposes as one. They are decorative and add strength to the build and cover the screw holes were the legs Attach.. Once all the build was done I stained the trough and the hearts separately. Then fixed the hearts together then attached to the trough. I then Applied six coats of exterior clear quick dry varnish to the whole unit. I was very happy how they came out and my neighbour could not stop smilling and that was enough for me to see her smile...
