#175 Raised Garden Beds – Part 2

#175 Raised Garden Beds – Part 2

Part 2 of the raised garden beds. I put the legs together, add a roofing membrane to protect the wood, then stain the wood with linseed oil.

Not only the membrane will protect the wood from moisture, but it will also form a good barrier from chemicals contained in the pressure-treated wood from migrating into the soil.

    Not sure about roofing material , never tried it , not sure if it leaches out into the soil because its oil based . Let me know if you have some strange shaped veggies Joe .😂 Just kidding looks fine .

    I’m sorry ,but I don’t agree with your vegetable box. I think the roofing materials will leach into your vegetables, as well as the treated wood, and the corner roofing pieces. I absolutely love your design, but not your choice of materials. Try to consider this, would you eat off of the planter box? Will the sun release toxins from the roofing material into your plants? I hate to be a Safety Sally, but I think you are wrong.

    The raised beds look fantastic. I like your idea for the corners. I am looking forward to this years snow pile competition

    Hey hey Joe Thanks for the shoutout. And I am hoping we can do a snow pile competition again it was a lot of fun.

    Nice build. You may want to set the legs on gravel/stone to drain the water away, that’s what I did to slow the rotting of the wood. Good luck on your snow pile. Later

    Great looking project Joe! I didn’t even know you had a table saw 😄. You’ve made a wood project and I’m about to make a steel project. Actually one inspired by your Bolens snowplow videos. I acquired a couple of garden tractor front blades that I plan on welding together and mounting on my Bolens. If only I lived down the road from you like Dave because I may need some help with the fabrication of this project. Oh well, I’ll figure it out.

    Looks real good! Going around with the trim router adds a nice finishing touch. Thanks for sharing

  14. LoggerJohn01 on February 13, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Hello Joe. Looking good. Like Kevin Liveez  commented about concerns about toxins , I’m not so sure too. Ok for flowers but vegetables …maybe not.  You could always give the vegetables to Dave. LOL. Maybe line them something that is safer . Cheers for now

    Nice strong boxes . Should last a long time . What about plastic drainage foundation mating on the inside . 👍

    Hi Joe! Wow! They look like fine furniture! Maybe you missed your calling! Great job!

  17. GP Outdoors on February 13, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    Good day Joe! They are like pieces of art. LOL. Your wife will be most happy I am sure. They look great and are very well built. If you have some leftover wood, perhaps you can make a couple more and ship them over to my place… no need to tell my wife you made them. LOL. Cheers ! Great project and result Joe! Cheers!

    Salut mon ami!!! Great looking planter boxes. I wouldn’t have thought of the ice and water shield for a lining but that should sure make it water tight!!! I like the linseed oil on the boxes. That should help keep the wood preserved and it looks nice too!!! Can’t be much wrong with that eh!!! LOL Thanks for the series. It was interesting. Very well built planters!!!

    I enjoy and find your video’s educational and entertaining. I work away from home during the week, I don’t have much use for television. I find your channel as well as other’s more useful. I am remodeling our small back porch inside would recommend using linseed oil on pine boards I’m putting on walls. To keep it more natural looking.

    Or like my dad always joked- I’ve cut it three times and it’s still too short! Lol! That is a very powerful and sharp table saw to run through those 6X6’s!
