Decide on the size you want for your planter. We decided to build ours 3’ high, 4’ wide and 1.5’ deep.
It is probably best that you figure out what type of plant you want to put in it, so you can make the height of the shelf accordingly. The large Kimberley ferns we used have pots that are 10” high and 10” in diameter, so we placed our shelf 12” from the top of the planter.
You will need:
Wood (we used cedar, but you can also use pressure-treated wood)
2X4’s for the frame
1X4’s for the cladding
Exterior paint or stain to seal the wood
1) Create 2 rectangles using the 2X4’s. Be sure to add an extra piece across for the shelf to rest on and if necessary, a piece down the middle for added stability. You can hold the pieces in place using large clamps or a handy assistant. Screw the pieces together.
2) Join the two rectangles by screwing them into the side pieces.
3) Clad the frame using the 1X4’s or whatever dimension you have decided on. Be sure to pre-drill the holes so the wood won’t spilt. You can leave a slight overhang to cover the pieces of side cladding, or you can mitre the edges if you want to get fancy!
4) Place planks of wood across shelf support to create the shelf.
5) Finish the planter with either an exterior stain or paint.
