Pallet Planter Box

So I had an idea like this but after seeing Danr78’s “Green Planter Boxes” I had to try it. So I picked up some pallets, Dismantled them, De-nailed the center section and threw this together. I believe if I had a hand held planer of some sort that I could get a nice looking finish for the price of the wood…..”FREE”........ This is not a over the top project, But its more Attractive than a couple of 5 gallon tomato buckets.

Looks good, I think the rough surface is perfect for a planter box.

Much better than plastic. And nice reuse of materials too.

I have seen one or two other “pallet planters” on here and like those, this will also be going into my favorites. My dad has a few spare pallets he just got from having appliances delivered and I’d like to use them for a similar project since we are finally beginning to landscape our yard.

Something like this should be perfect!

By the way, what are the dimensions on this particular planter? Just curious if you tried to maximize the lengths of wood you had, or if you cut them to fit a certain size you were going for?

I like it very much, so much so, as soon as I can go get some pallets, I going to do the same thing.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the comments.

Jonathan, This one is roughly 36in wide x 16in deep x 16in tall. This one is about the widest I thought I could build, But was thinking of running the boards vertical next time for a longer planter. Now my mother wants one so I will start on another one here in a day or so.
