Raised garden I made from an instructable.
The bottom is very sturdy and has held up well with deck stain.
The raised box is unfinished cedar and it has struggled to hold its shape.
It still works but the wood has bowed and flexed a little more than I would have like.
This was also the first large project I got to use my pocket hole jig which worked out very well.

Note: If you are going to build this think about how you will mow the grass under it. Especially if you are from a part of the country with snakes.

That is really nice. With one like that, one could almost put casters on it and bring it inside in the winter!!

Nice work on it.

Looks great, wonderful project, really like the height and the area it takes up. I saw one where they used an old bath tub. I can understand the snake issue. I just recently learned of all places Canada has a large snake population

Love the use of the cedar and the pocket screw assembly
