I made my planter box very similar to this last summer and a relative asked me to make her one so I said sure anyway I owed her big time for minding my kids as I went away for a weekend… I made hers a little different than the one I made myself and the main difference is that my planter box walls I used the wood horizontally and I made her planter walls vertically as you can see..

It came out awesome ….by the way I made a blog on my project here….

The planter box frame is made from 2×2
The planter platform is made from 2×6
The planter walls is made from 1×6
And finally the top trim that is routered is made from 2×4 see below pics

Ed,
just followed your blog here. I made some planter boxes back awhile and I lined them with some geo-textile to prevent soil particles from migrating out the bottom when watered. Check some local road construction projects and look for discarded fabric or silt fencing.
BTW, when describing normal construction lumber dimensions start with the thickness first, i.e.. 1×6 or 2×4. It trips me up each time I read your texts.
Screw head washers are a nice touch.
