Recycled Wood Planter Box

Gather together a bunch of scrap wood and tell me what you want me to make with it.  Chances are I can come up with something.  That’s what our friend Stephanie did.  She really wanted a planter box for the garden she was starting so she handed over a bunch of scraps….trim molding, pallet scraps, misc whatever wood and told me to go for it.  Here are the results:

I love the planter boxes on your blog. I was wondering what your experience is with the longevity of planting in the boxes? I have designed some custom boxes for a client, and I am debating just making them and useing pots inside.

We build them HOPING for the longest life span possible. Of course, that can vary depending on the age/quality of the materials used. As long as they look good for a while, we’re happy :)

Wow! I’m love how you used the trim molding. It adds such a cool texture to the box.

I have LOTS of scrap wood from building our deck & want to make some planter boxes with it… I love this box & am defiantly going to make a few of this pattern to put on the deck & 1 or 2 for the front flowerbed! Thanks for sharing!
