So I wanted to build some western red cedar planter boxes to add to my garden space. After making the first one, I decided to take a few photos and post it in some local Buy and Sell groups, thinking maybe I could sell a half dozen or so and that would pay for all the wood for the ones I want for myself.

A month and a half later, I;m still trying to keep up with all the orders, including some custom sized larger ones. I’ve sold nearly a hundred so far but still have not had time to make some to keep for myself. Well, that is a good problem to have. Been having a lot of fun building these.

I sell them unfinished only. My own will have an oil based finish on the outside only. No finish at all however on the inside as they are for growing food.

Thanks Candy. They have been fun to make. Finishing off a window planter box today for a local landscaping company. And yeah, still making lots of paddles today. Will be going to FedEx later this week to ship out half a dozen kayak paddles and a couple canoe paddles.

Looks like really nice work, coupled with what appears to be some primo Cedar. If you can’t catch up you might consider increasing your prices…..

Thanks for posting.

Those are great. I’m wanting to do something similar with some leftover Trex.

Yes, I’m picky when getting my cedar. I have to go pic up another load this week. 10 more planter boxes were picked up yesterday. Increased prices once already and will increase again for next season. They have certainly been a good money maker already though.
