this was a quick weekend project for a friend of ours sam (samantha) that lives in an apartment but still wanted to be able to grow some fresh herbs so she asked if i would make her something compact she could put on her porch.so this was my answer.made from some rough sawn cedar ive had taking up space too long.simple butt joined boards assembled with tbIII and ss trim head screws.size is h=35” w=24” d=20”,the boxes are h=6” w=6”.there are drain holes covered with screen on each box.the finish is penofin roewood oil western red cedar.the letters were cut out with rocklers sign making system.i wish the cedar was all the same color but hey it’s a free project so she cant complain.

I’ll keep it clean, so may I suggest a small bar fridge for when you sneak out at night to visit the planther!

Under no circumstances will my wife be allowed to see this, because then I will have more to do. I already have enough to do.

I will keep this in mind as a potential X-mas present for people I like.

Great build, Pottz!

Forgive me for being daft LBD, but I dont know what SWMBO stands for? I am guessing some version of a woman?

Great build. Drainage is key. The cedar should age well.
