My Garden box

Submitted by Kabarie on Thu, 05/30/2013 - 13:29

Built this with the help of my Dad! Learned about threads as I've never used them before. Because of all the controversy surrounding having pressure treated wood touch the veggies and because I could not afford or find cedar 4x4's I decided to use the left over cedar to build a little cover around the 4x4's so my soil and veggies will never come into contact with it. Love it and the veggies are growing great!

Estimated Cost
$50/60
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Cedar and pressure treated 4x4
Finish Used
I forget the stain I used on the outside of cedar...something natural looking.
Recommended Skill Level
Beginner

I'm glad you were able to follow my plans. I'm not a plan writer so I wasn't sure if I gave good enough instruction. It is a shame you can not get all cedar. Sealing the legs will definitly help them last longer and with all that work you certainly want them to last! Just a hint...you can make 3 for not much more than you spent making one....Great job and thanks for the brag post LOVE LOVE LOVE
