This is a small project No 4 Son Toby and I made for his back yard.

Its a three tier herb garden for him to grow his own cooking herbs in.
Constructed from some recycled pine packing crate material, using the base frame as the herb planters support and a length of plank for the planter boxes.

The construction dimensions are marked in chalk on the concrete drive if its a project of interest.
Held together with butt joints glued and screwed.
Four small casters were added to the bottom of the frame oriented to allow the frame to move sideways on the path.
The planter boxes were then painted with exterior undercoat.
The ID pegs were made from off cuts and the tops painted with blackboard paint.

-- Regards Robert

Nice project rob, looks like plenty room for all kinds of herbs and it’s mobile. I am sure your son will be very happy with it. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Rob, that is a really cool idea, and very practicle.
I can see lots of herbs growing in there.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
