I built these planter boxes from plans in Woodsmith Magazine’s Outdoor Furniture book. I like the way they turned out and apparently, so do my friends and neighbors who kept stopping by my garage to see my progress.
I have already been hired buy one neighbor to build a toy box in the same style.
This project was also great practice making mortise and tenon joints. The three-piece legs required a lot of dado cutting, but simplified the mortises quite a bit. The only problem that I found with the plans is that they didn’t include a cut list or shopping list for the project. I had to go over all of the drawings very carefully to make my own lists. I modified the plans a little bit to allow me to use some 11/32 bead board for the panels just because I wanted to use them up.
