How to build a three tier planter box

Building the planter boxes

Building the planter boxes

The first step of the project is to build the planter boxes. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to cut the components at the right dimensions. Use a circular saw to make accurate cuts. Drill pilot holes through the side components and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the front and back faces.

Attaching the bottom

Attaching the bottom

Build the bottom for the planter out of 1×6 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the frame and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the bottom. Drill several drainage holes through the bottom.

Building the legs

Building the legs

Use 1×3 lumber to build the legs for the tiered planter. Make cuts to the diagonal leg, as shown in the diagram. Smooth the cut edges with fine-grit sandpaper and remove the residues.

Attaching the planter boxes

Attaching the planter boxes

Attach the legs to the three planters, as shown in the diagram. Use 1 1/4″ nails through the legs into the planters in order to create a rigid structure. Add glue to the joints to enhance the bond of the structure.

Fitting the side braces

Fitting the side braces

Attach the 1×3 braces to the sides of the planter. Use brad nails to lock the braces into place.

Fitting the diagonal brace

Fitting the diagonal brace

In order to add support to the three tier planter, we recommend you to fit a 1×3 diagonal brace to the back of the structure. Cut both ends of the brace at 45 degrees and lock it into place using 1 1/4″: brad nails.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the project and to protect the wooden garden swing stand from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.

    Under “Materials”, letter C for 3X Planter, should that not be 1×6 instead of 1×3

      Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve updated the cut list with the right dimensions.
