« Part 11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued Part 12 of Outdoor Furniture series Part 13: One Man's Trash... »

I finished painting my patio planter boxes today. I like the way they came out. Thanks to the mortise and tenon, and panel construction, they are very sturdy. The were a lot of dadoes, mortises, tenons, and trim to cut for this project, but it was a lot of fun fitting all the pieces together.

The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot.

Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was finishing up the white primer coat last Friday, a neighbor, who is pregnant, came over to check them out and asked if she could hire me to build a toy box in the same style as the planter boxes. This toy box will be the next project that I start.

Beautiful Planter Boxes, I kind of favore the “Chianti” but both will be Grand when full of flowers or greenery.

Very nice Fit and Finish. – Len
