Introduction: Strawberry Pallet Planter

For this project you will need the following materials:
- A suitable pallet as described in the next two steps
- A hand-saw or jigsaw
- Electric drill or hammer
- Two sizes of screws and nails - approx. lengths 4 cm (1-1/2") and 8cm (3")

Optional:
- Heavy duty chisel/wedge and iron mallet
- Non-toxic paint and paintbrush

Step 1: Choosing Your Pallet

First of all, choosing pallets for diy projects involves a bit of know-how. You need pallets that are in good condition, without rot, and which have not been treated with chemical insecticides.

Step 2: Construction Begins

The premise of this project is to cut it into three pieces and reassemble them.

Step 3: More Details on This Project

The strawberry pallet planter will take you an afternoon to complete. Afterwards, paint it with non-toxic wood stain to extend it's life. Full project and planting up details are on Lovely Greens.

I appreciate all the thought that has gone into a planter made out of what is basically scrap lumber. What I don't see is just how you isolate and plants all levels. I do see the straw in a photo and wire mesh in the bottom. I guess because of being new to this type of thing, it isn't all clear to me. A clarification please.
