In this update we build a window planter flower box from some rough cut cedar. You could really build this from any material. The first thing I do is cut all my pieces down on the table saw and miter saw (or just a circular saw). There are only two measurements you need to remember for this project. You will need to cut six strips of wood to 1 inch by 1 inch by 6 inches and 8 strips of wood to 1 inch by 1 inch by 24 inches. There will be a cut list in the next step with 3d modeling photos. This is a very easy and fun build. It’s also a great build to do with kids. Enjoy and happy planting. Complete plan can be downloaded for free at http://www.stoneandsons.net/plans
8 – 1x1x24
6 – 1x1x6
As you assemble the planter it will go together much like a log cabin. Alternate the 24 inch and 6 inch pieces.
Use glue and nails as you build.
Lay four 24 inch pieces out in a rectangular manner evenly spaced and make sure the ends are lined up.
Place a 6 inch piece on top of both ends of the 24 inch pieces making sure all corners are flush.
Stack two 24 inch pieces on top of the 6 inch end pieces placing them above the two outer lower 24 inch pieces.
Continue stacking the 24 inch and 6 inch alternating pieces until you have reached this step. This concludes the assembly. Wrap the inside with burlap and staple to hold the potting soil. Happy planting
