A friend replaced the cedar on his deck and I got some of the cedar. It looked pretty rough at first, but after running it through the planer, jointer and tablesaw, it looked pretty good, so I built a planter box.

I am going to put a lattice panel in it and plant some type of climbing vines. It will create some privacy between my deck and the neighbors kitchen.

thanks for looking and comments are welcome.

I’m a big fan of recycling wood. Your planter looks great. The top looks great with the detail.

Great save on the materials, and a good looking planter box to boot!

Have you considered Josephs Coat roses? I have a trellis on my fence that provides some privacy from my neighbor’s 2nd floor bedroom window to what LOML and I are praying will be the nursery in our house… I have Josephs Coat planted there and they do a GREAT job filling in. They get the name because of the MANY varied color blooms… I have am Imperial Rose that I am about to rip out and put another JC rose in just to get the blooms / colors I want…

Don’t you love it when you can “help” a neighbor get rid of some “old” boards. I need more neighbors like that. I like the box too!
