I have not been on vacation.

Building raised bed planters and yard benches.

All made from mostly—”rescued” lumber; some from all RESCUED materials.

Still a lot of work and the cost of the screws is also higher than most realize.

I build sturdy enough to easily support about 300 pounds. All cross braced and pilot holes drilled for the screws too. No nails used of any kind.

Very nice work on the planter, I have been gone for a month, so many things to do after I got home. Looking quite green here, leaves are just coming out, week or so later this year.

Fine work on the planter. It’s about that time of the year again, I better get moving myself.
