I made a few cedar planters and friends and deceided to build a bunch extra becuase the neighbours seen what i was building and wnated a few.

i decided to find a way to build them without some fasteners and this what i was able to come up with after searching he web. all made with cedar. doesnt show it here but i lined the sides with plastice so the water or soil wouldnt weep thru the side just the bottom.

if you noitce in the pictures i didnt need the mallet for assembly as it didnt move , everthing fit together better than i expected the first puting togther.

I like it. Designing it so that it does not need fasteners is a good idea. I would bet that once it is full of dirt, it not to be moved. Planting and harvesting would be a lot easier on my back with something like this.

I love the sliding dovetail for the joinery. Great way to keep from using screws, which tend to rust. it also allows for wood movement along the length of the dovetail. These should last for a long time. Great job.

Nice sliding dovetail. Pretty cool solution to avoiding fasteners. Looks great, too!
