Very nice job and love the look.

That box is gonna be heavy when it’s full but…............ it will look great.

Beautifully done!.....question…where will it go permanently? In front of the garage door works if you put some castors on it. Like jaykaypur said….heavy when full.

Tip for moving… remove all vegetation. Cover box with plastic for a few weeks. Without moisture in the soil I can hump this box around easier than an 80 pound sack of concrete. I built this a year ago when I first moved to Sacramento…. dirt poor and nothing to give for mothers day. I used a 12 v. Drill. A worm drive skill saw. A Stanley miter box (the $10 variety). Hammer. Nails. Screws. Nail set. May have used a speed square somewhere in there.. obviously there was a paint brush involved . White paint and some Thompson’s water seal… (it slightly yellows on paint). The .30 mil plastic came off a job site. Simply tacked in place with staples. Not shown are the 3 drain holes in the bottom clinched to the bottom with 3/4” standard pvc nipples and skirts. To get this to work properly I had to rig it to my existing sprinkler system…. who wants to water a box every stinking day right? By the way it’s Redwood!
