Planter boxes are so attractive on a patio and I had been looking high and low for the right ones to complete my outdoor decor. I found this video on Youtube for these beautiful modern planter boxes and I ordered the plans from Crafted Workshop for $4.99. The materials used and step by step directions are in the plans and they are well worth a simple download. So a brief summary description is the best way to tell you how wonderful this planter idea is.
- For this build he used
- 6 Cedar (1 x 4s)
- 3 Cedar (1 x 2s)
- A Pressure Treated 2 x 6
- Some 28243; Angled Iron
- The cost of the iron and steel is roughly $120
Then you just put your box together and lay some wire across the bottom, then install your steel side braces,
This is a gorgeous little DIY and turns out so beautifully. The DIY Modern Planters looked great on my patio although I had to bet my Brother in Law who is a beer drinking master wood crafter to make them for me, but he really did an excellent job and everything went according to the plans we downloaded. I had to rent a truck to get them over to my house and halfway through the trip home I realized i really wanted to make them into a miniature food garden and the cedar they are made of would be a built in pest repellant.
