Planter Box

The Challenge

Lots of planter boxes out there and we have had several.  This is something my wife wanted me to make so I was off to design something.  I wanted to only use 2x4s and use as little hardware as possible.  I also wanted to make it V shaped to decrease the weight so it could me moved.

The Solution

After some time in Sketchup I just started cutting and came up with this very simple design.  Part way through I wanted other people to be able to make them so I simplified the design and made it use less wood.
