How to Build Wooden Flower Boxesby HomeRepairExpert.com
Wooden flower boxes can enhance the look of your indoor or outdoor container garden. You can build these boxes yourself and save some money. Once you're done, you can choose whether to plant a few flowers directly into the flower boxes or just insert existing plants in unattractive planters into the boxes.
Things You'll Need
- Three 1-by-8-inch boards, 2 feet long, for sides and bottom
- Rust-proof screws
- Screwdriver or drill
- Two 1-by-6-inch boards, 8 inches long, for ends
Step 1Stand up two of your 1-by-8-inch boards next to one another with an 8-inch gap between them. Set the third board over the first two and line up the edges to make everything flush.
Step 2Screw the boards together, placing screws every 6 inches through the top board and into the side boards.
Step 3Put one of the end pieces between the side boards and work it into place to begin to close the box shape. Screw two screws through the top board and into the end piece to secure. Repeat with the other end piece.
Step 4Reinforce the corner joints with two spaced-apart screws going through the side boards and into the end pieces.
Step 5Repeat Steps 1 to 4 to make as many boxes as you need.
Tips and Warnings
- Make measurement adjustments as necessary for longer or wider boxes. You can also break the box into sections by inserting small boards (the same size as the end boards) and spacing them out inside the box before securing with screws.
