Cut Your Wood
Cut your wood to the specified dimensions.
Drill Pocket Holes
Drill 3 pocket holes along 2 parallel sides of each 1x12x12 boards, and 1 pocket hole at each end of the 1x2 pieces.
Use a sanding block to sand edges smooth.
Attach Legs to Front and Back
Using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws, attach 2 legs to one of the 1x12x12 pieces. Repeat. These will be the front and back of the planter.
Attach remaining 1x12x12 pieces (the sides) to the front and back you assembled in the previous step.
Add Bottom Slats
Use 1 1/4" pocket hole screws to attach bottom slats (1x2 pieces). You can use a scrap piece of wood as a spacer or just eyeball it and try to space them as evenly as possible. It will not be visible so doesn't have to be perfect.
Paint or Stain
Finish your planter with any paint or stain of your choice.
