Quick little raised bed for my nephew. Really simple, just a couple fat mortise and tenon. And a quick cap on the rails. 4 screws total to hold the cap trim on.

inside to inside is 45”x45”. Used 2 2×12x8, ripped them down to 8”, and used the off cut for the cap and rail trim.

Love the through mortise detail. Most raised flower beds are just nailed together. Simple but it really elevates the look of the thing from pedestrian to a bit more thoughtful.

Have your say...
