How to build a strawberry tower planter
The first step of the project is to build the base for the tiered planter. Cut the components from 2×8 lumber at 82 1/2″. Use a miter saw to make 45 bevel cuts to both ends of the beams. Lay the beams on a level surface, align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
The next step of the project is to build the second tier planter. Cut the beams from 2×8 lumber at 69 3/4″ with a saw. Fit the beams on a level surface and then align the edges flush. Drill pilot holes through the beams and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure you take accurate measurements and then check if the corners are perfectly square.
Make a decorative cut to one end of the beams using a saw. Mark the cut lines, make the cut and the smooth the cut edges with sandpaper.
Build the third tier planter for the strawberry pyramid using the instructions of the diagram. Cut the beams from 2×8 lumber at the right dimensions, make the decorative cuts to one end of the beams and the assemble them together. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square.
Continue the project by assembling the top tier of the strawberry planter. Cut the components from 2×8 lumber and make the decorative cuts. Lay the beams on a level surface and then join them together, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the beams together.
Select the location for the strawberry tower and then remove the vegetation layer. Level the surface and then fit the base box. Fit the second tier planter and align it into place tightly. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the beams to the base box.
Fit the third tier planter to the tower and align the edges properly. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it into place tightly. Fit the last planter to the top of the pyramid. Align the edges, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock it into place tightly.
Fill the strawberry pyramid with the appropriate soil and then plant the runners. If you use a weather resistant lumber, such as cedar, this planter will last many years. This is a quick design so you can get the job done in less then one day and then go on with your life, while having the strawberry plants grow in your backyard.
Seen from above, this strawberry planter has a neat look and it is the ideal addition to any backyard. It will not only grow you fresh strawberries, but it will also add unique charm.
