Project Information

So my in-laws needed a couple of garden boxes, and without any plans or fresh store-bought wood (these were made with scraps), these are the final products I managed to put together.

They were made with a mix of pine 1×4's and some pressure treated 2×4/2×6's on the inside bottom to keep any organic material from rotting out the bottom.

Also, I built these away from my own shop, so I was limited in the tools I could use. For this, all I used was a skillsaw, drill/driver, measuring tape and square edge.

The subsequent pictures were taken after I left, as my in-laws actually filled them with flowers. It was nice to see them being used!

It was also the first time I ever added mitred edges to any of my projects with a circular saw.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks for looking.

Nice little project.You might want to keep away edible garden stuff from the pressure treated bottoms though.
