How to build a tiered planter

Building the ends of the planter

Building the ends of the planter

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the ends of the planters. Mark the cut lines on the slats and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges and remove the residues.

Fitting the bottom

Fitting the bottom

The next step of the project is to attach the bottom to the sides of the planters. Add glue to the joints, drill pilot holes through the side components and insert 1 1/4″ screws. Align the edges with attention before inserting the screws. Drill several drainage holes through the bottom component.

Fitting the faces of the planter

Fitting the faces of the planter

Build the faces of the planters out of 1×6 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the sides and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the components. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.

Building the legs

Building the legs

Build the supports out of a 72″ long 2×6 beam. Cut both ends of the beam at 80 degrees. Afterwards, use a saw to make the cuts to the top of the supports. Smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.

Fitting the first planter

Fitting the first planter

Start the assembly of the vertical tiered ladder planter. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to fit the top planter to the side legs. Align the edges with attention. Drill pilot holes through the side legs and insert 2″ into the planters. Add glue to enhance the bond of the joints.

Attaching the legs

Attaching the legs

Fit the rest of the planters, making sure you place them equally-spaced. You can adjust the distance between the planters to suit your needs.

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.
