How to build a basic strawberry planter
The first step of the project is to build the legs for the strawberry planter. Cuts the components at the right dimensions and then lock them together with 1 5/8″ screws. Drill pilot holes through the side slats and insert 1 5/8″ screws, after making sure the corners are square.
Use 1×4 lumber for the end components. Use a circular saw to make the angle cuts to the end slats. Smooth the edges with sandpaper.
Use 1×6 lumber for the bottom component. Drill pilot holes through the bottom slat and insert 1 5/8″ screws into the end components. Make sure the corners are square.
Fit the 1×4 slats to the sides of the planter box. Use glue and 2″ nails to secure the slats into place tightly.
Attach the legs to the planter box. Drill pilot holes through the legs and insert 1 15/8″ screws into the planter. Make sure you align the edges with attention before inserting the screws.
Considering the wood planter will be exposed to the elements, you should use a weather resistant wood, such as cedar or redwood.
