This phase of the project is just about the general construction of the raised gardens. Cutting things to length, measuring things (maybe that should have gone before cutting things), drilling holes, cutting dadoes, and stuff like that. I didn’t try any new or fancy techniques this time so I won’t waste your time with a lot of words. I’m sure you’ll get the gist of it from the pictures, so enjoy…
Cutting the posts to length. That was easy!
The side rails all cut to length.
All the parts are coming together.
I only had to drill about 230 of these.
Cut and drilled and ready for assembly.
Setting things up just to make sure it all fits.
Cutting a slightly angled dado so the rail cap will sit crooked on top of the block panels to let water run off.
All four long sides assembled.
That’s all the construction for now. I’ll assemble the boxes by adding the short sides and arbor once we’ve moved them to the backyard. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure they’d be too heavy to move.
