My wife went shopping today, so I took the opportunity to whip up a last minute Mother’s day gift. It is a planter box made of cedar. I had no plans whatsoever going into this project. I just went to the big box store and grabbed what I thought I might need. Initially I planned on making two of these, but I ran out of material. Oops. I guess I should have planned a bit :)
The construction is simply Titebond III and brad nails. Nothing fancy. I rounded over the edges of the inner slats with a 1/4” round over bit in the router table, and there is a small rabbet around the top edge for the plastic liner to sit in. The liner is also supported underneath with 2 slats. The bottom of the box is open.
All in all, not bad for a couple of hours of work (and a few minutes of “gardening”). I hope she likes it!
