This is my sort of first project from reclaimed pallet wood and plywood. I have managed to gather a lot of big format printing pallets and started some fun with woodworking using reclaimed wood from them. main structure is made out of 1” plywood stripes screwed together. rest is I believe a pine? from pallets mentioned above. all painted with garden fence paint to rpotect from elements. What do you fellow professional woodworkers think about it?

Very nice looking,I’m not to sure how long the plywood will last out side and next to dirt.Perhaps if you empty it and take it out of the weather for the winter months and then repaint the inside before planting every year you can get a few seasons out of it.

I am glad you like it guys and it is true every wife I know likes it :)
a1Jim – that plywood is being sold here in UK as sort of waterproof marine plywood but it was painted 3 times before assembling anyway and there is a plastic bedding inside of every planter so hopefully it will protect it for long enough…
