My wife wanted me to put together a raised vegetable garden for the kids. But right now, because we're doing some planting in the backyard with trees and all, we weren't sure of a good permanent location where there is not too much sun or too much shade. I figured this would be perfect if I built a portable garden on a table.
From our decking project, I had extra lumber laying around. Specifically, a couple 4 x 4 x 8 PT wood and three 2 x 6 x 20 southern yellow pine.
So the idea is to build some buckets and a table for those buckets to nest in.
|Wood cut down into 18" lengths and crosscut to half inch thickness. Laying out the box to test fit.|
|For 2 of the bottom board, a dado cut for the slotted bottom.|
|Bottom section of the box slotted together.|
|Corner ties where all of the screws are secured to.|
|Clamping things together for things to be screwed tight.|
|Using some decking screws for the ties.|
|Finished bottom portion of the crate.|
|Adding the top portion of the crate siding.|
|All four boxes done.|
|The table frame.|
|Adding legs to the table frame. Legs are 4 x 4 x 30.|
|Added some slots into the table frame to hold the boxes.|
|All 4 boxes in place.|
