Build an Inset Garden Frame
MAKE A BOX
Create a box using 1 x 6 x 6' pressure treated fence boards.
The outside measurement of our box is 44" x 14".
We cut 2 pieces at 44" for sides and 4 pieces 12-3/4" for top, bottom and dividers.
Cut boards to length.
MEASURE AND COUNTERSINK
Measure to create three equal sections and then mark both side pieces so you know where to countersink.
Then countersink two holes on all 4 lines on both sides.
Glue and screw the box together. Use outdoor wood glue and 3" ceramic coated deck screws.
From a piece of 1 x 6 x 8' pressure-treated fence board, rip 2 pieces 2-1/2" x 8'. Then cut each board into 2 pieces with mitred corners (2 long side pieces, matching top and bottom pieces).
Frame the box flush with the inside edge, creating an overhang to the outside.
Glue the front edge and the mitres and then attach frame to box with brad nails.
