    This project is awesome!!!! Thanks for sharing. Would you list all the name of the saws (cutting equipments/tools) we are planning to own those cutting equipment but donโ€™t know much of the style or the right products. Thanks.

    Wow! This is so cool. I want to come play in your workshop!

    As we will be growing food/herbs in those nice beds, is that spray out of the can "organic"? Id worry about chemicals leeching into the soil

    Paid for plan, but it can only be viewed on a design software only. Should be on PDF format. Downloaded the software, Free Trial Pro version, which is the only one the plans can be viewed. All I got was a simple sketch I expected a full,plan plus measurements.
    Total waste of money

    This video is awesome … I love the way the illustrations … VERY HELPFUL

  10. Riffrider on April 4, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Not sure why I’m watching this the only wood I’ve worked with in my life is my own

  11. Old Town Fabrication & Design on April 4, 2021 at 12:04 am

    This is a really nice build. I especially like the angles, they really add to the design.

  12. TIm Nash on April 4, 2021 at 12:05 am

    This really helps if you have a working Wood shop most people donโ€™t

  13. Edwin Barrios on April 4, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Can I use a table saw for the angle cuts?

    Thank you SO much for helping us to make, build & do more STUFF!! I really appreciate it Brad. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ—to happiness!

  16. Nifiah Reid on April 4, 2021 at 12:13 am

    This is so freaking awesome!!!!Can you put this kit together for sale. I have the capacity to put it together, but not cut it. Plus I don’t have the tools.

  17. Front Desk on April 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

    You forgot drainage holes !

  18. Colleen A. on April 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I noticed you did not wear safety glasses (was this an oversight?). Also would wood glue have helped from using so many brad nails?

  19. Duca Schoenberg on April 4, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I’m sure you will find amazing woodworking plans on the Stodoys plans website.

  20. Ashley Takes Action on April 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    can you just build me one lol

  21. greg randol on April 4, 2021 at 12:16 am

    My husband uses these plans from Woodglut and is very happy with them. However. I love yours!

  22. fishz g4lore on April 4, 2021 at 12:17 am

    what software did you use for the graphic design?

  23. Tracie Sites on April 4, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Love it! It’s perfect for small spaces. But you might want to put some drain holes in it and include it with your plans. Not everyone will know/think to do that before they put their plants in.

  24. Ryan Schenck on April 4, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Love how it turned out! Do you have plans available?

  25. Ethan Carter Designs on April 4, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Very cool project and video bud! Just in time for spring!

  26. Bruce A. Ulrich on April 4, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Turned out sharp. I like the angles.

  27. Francisco Albarran on April 4, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Hi, I can’t find the plans for measurements?

  28. Today in Jen's Sewing Room on April 4, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Just FYI – when you were cutting the end pieces – if you watch this at 1.25x it sounds like you’re shooting a laser blaster in a sci-fi movie ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ”ซ

  29. Rog3r Bee on April 4, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Did you use stainless steel brad nails?

  30. yosef's world on April 4, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Project build stuff:just a little bit of sand paper


  31. Janko Martin on April 4, 2021 at 12:27 am

    I started with Woodglut plans.

  32. gratefulRed69 on April 4, 2021 at 12:29 am

    followed your directions and measurements…and my box end caps ended up being about an inch too long. Did you cut them down off camera to fit??

  33. Kim Koberle on April 4, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Do you sell it on Amazon?

  34. Anton Shkabara on April 4, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Woodglut is a solid company with solid woodworking plans.
