How to Build a Planter Box (to hang from a deck rail)

How to Build a Planter Box (to hang from a deck rail)

In this tutorial I show you how to build a planter box, to hang off of a deck railing, made out of Cedar and steel. I needed a place close to the kitchen to keep all of my Basil that I grew from last year’s seeds.

    How long do you think this will last? You’re screwing in from the top. With water and weather won’t the screws come out in a few years?

    This project is only for pros , too many tools required ,don’t have all those tools 👎

    Kind of small, kind of complicated. Trapazoids?

    Woodglut has a lot of plans to choose from.

    Great video as always man! Keep it up!

    Very well done, thanks for sharing it.

  11. Ramona Mattioni on August 30, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    It’s that simple, just go to the Woodglut website and enter the world of woodworkers.

    i like your work

  13. Brian Prusa on August 30, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    That’s a ton of basil! Pesto party at your place!

  14. Tammy Finch on August 30, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    so cool! I’m going to make one.

  15. Tammy Leitte on August 30, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Very creative. Great job!

  16. Wilf on August 30, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Nice work man!

  17. JJ C on August 30, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I like what you did but I feel the weight of your plants dependent on 4 screws might not be so cool. Maybe should have had them bend underneath? Just a thought

  18. Cheryl Carter on August 30, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I like the way it was hung. We are using old wood cd storage racks and wondered how to hang them .

  19. Jared Anderson on August 30, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    seems a tad heavy relative to the support. may want to add a 3rd support down the middle.

  20. Ash on August 30, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Why the tapered box if it is hanging on a straight rail?

  21. Peter Hemm on August 30, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Ok, if you want to show off your expensive tools.

  22. Fish Channel on August 30, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    what type table saw? brand and size?

  23. Damaris Alberto on August 30, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Very nice video, too bad that I don’t have all those tools to make my own 😩

  24. vlmidkiff on August 30, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Isn’t that table saw supposed to be fitted with a guard to ensure easy clean-up?

  25. Steven Smith on August 30, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    I did a similar project for my apartment a short time ago. Except it has solid walls to put the plants in the box directly instead of pots. I also used screws to support everything instead of glue and nails. I’m curious how this will hold up over the long run but it looks great.

    Great video! Helped me out as I am a beginner !!

  27. Moondog9322 on August 30, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Nice job!

  28. Andree Markel on August 30, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    This and similar plans can be found on the Stodoys website.

  29. TexasChance58 on August 30, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Just what I was looking for!

  30. Cory Kent on August 30, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Well, this is the first video I’ve seen of yours. It was great. I can’t make the project at all myself, but I thought everything was great in it. The instruction was easy enough for a beginner, the editing was just the right amount of pace to help me understand as a beginner, but I can see I would enjoy your instruction even as I grew in skill. Cheers!

    I’ve used frame strapping bent into shape to hang home-built boxes. Works nice and has lots of holes already. I paint it so it doesn’t look like galvanized strapping.

  32. Radosław Rzepka on August 30, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Awesome! I realy like it, already found some wood that can fit well this project needs so effects you will see soon 🙂 I do not know why i found your chanel that late!

  33. Mary Collins on August 30, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Great job! now l have to get my husband to build them for me!

  34. John Schlumpf on August 30, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Love it. Easy, inexpensive and quick to make. Thanks!

  35. Jim Evers on August 30, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Nice and easy! Good job..

  36. Aaron Silverberg on August 30, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    simple straightforward and very well made – i’ll be making 3 or 4 baskets like these Thanks for the guidance!

  37. Benja's Uber 1337 Hobby on August 30, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    This turned out great! Thank you for sharing! New sub look forward to seeing more of your videos!

    Great project idea and video! On a safety note: I suggest your viewers clamp those metal bars when drilling them. Doing so without is a great way to get hurt, especially on a drill press.
