    Nice build, annoying sound. Can’t call it music.

  2. Michael Hudson on June 8, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    I have built similar ones, yours look great, but I always line mine with plastic sheeting and put a drain in, add wheels and it is ready. Wheels because they need to move in the winter.
    Great video

  3. Nelson G. on June 8, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Looks good brother. Thanx!

  4. Liam Clarke on June 8, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Thanks for the inspiration.
    I would recommend a 45 mitre for the outer side trim pieces for smoother look

  5. Luis Ramirez on June 8, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Excellent job 👏 nicely easy

  6. Milk Tobo on June 8, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    A design that doesn’t use brad nails and glue would be way better for exterior use. Dont bother filling in seams with sawdust either, the wood is gonna move like crazy outside and it will see big temp swing every day and those seems are gonna crack open in no time.

  7. Anna Noe on June 8, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Thanks! I downloaded this plan and the one for the workbench. I also sent you some $ even though they were free. It takes time to make these videos and plans. I’m just starting out making wood projects for my home. So I really appreciate the build plans because it’s hard enough as it is.

  8. Angella S. on June 8, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    I could have enjoyed this much more with out the horrible “masculine” music!

  9. Francisco chico on June 8, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Parabéns meu amigo excelente trabalho 👏👏👏

  10. sean on June 8, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Such a simple and nice design. You could bang out a bunch of these in short order for family members, friends, or it sell if you wanted.

    Nicely done!

    The only thing I might change is adding a small chamfer to the side pieces where they come together just to add a small detail.

  11. Timothy Langdon on June 8, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Thank you for the plans , one of the best woodworking channels on YouTube, what you make is amazing.

  12. Whatifitsstillalive? on June 8, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    This is a beautiful planter, and a great side. I’ll also make a longer one with a tweaking of two panels. Thank you for the plans! I will say this about structural integrity and use… I’ll have to cut the center bottom just a wee bit more narrow for drainage, and I just know the first time someone grabs that top overhang to move it, it’ll come off. Dirt is heavy. Wet dirt, even more so. So I will use stainless screws, countersunk, and fill with sawdust and glue. Again, thank you so much for the plans!

  13. ezyreap on June 8, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Not bad.

  14. R on June 8, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I made several of these for gifts for people, but changed a few things. The top i don’t like the look of miters, so i did a pin wheel top with overlapping 4" planks. They came out great..:)

  15. Time for Wakey Wakey on June 8, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    rub in some olive oil.

  16. Virginia Nalangan on June 8, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    I wanna know what size of wood to cut.

  17. Ted Reviews on June 8, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    I would have left some space between the bottom pieces for drainage and expansion when the wood gets wet. Other than that a nice clean simple build.

  18. Against The Grain Woodworking on June 8, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    I love the design but I think I’m going to lengthen the legs and taper the corners on the bottom.
    Overall great idea thank you!

  19. S A on June 8, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    🌹👍🏼

  20. Horatio Beaker on June 8, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Nice job. Great weekend build.

  21. Pramod Mathur on June 8, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    What kind of transparent protective coating can I apply to preserve the color of cedar?

  22. Gerardo Lira on June 8, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Superb…

  23. dustin on June 8, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    When can we expect a tall tapered cedar planter plans lol. Great job. Just subscribed

  24. Louis London on June 8, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Thanks!

  25. Renato Robles on June 8, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Very nice and simple. I’ll try to make it as my next project.

  26. David Raines on June 8, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    The idea of a cedar box is that cedar naturally weather resistant and rot proof . You did not use cedar for the four 2×2 corners and this will most likely be the down fall of your boxes .

  27. John Ligurotis on June 8, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    How do I download the plans?

  28. soulehawk on June 8, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    That was more than 3 boards.

  29. xerxel69 on June 8, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    It does look v pretty and the vid was well made but it’s not gonna stay looking like that once filled with wet mud and stones and left out in the rain and sun for a month. The boards need space and design changes to allow them to move. And the top will pop off if picked up. Ideally the strength should be in the design not the glue. You should do a version 2.0.

  30. Alex Reid on June 8, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Great video. Thanks for the plans. You got a sub and a like outta me 👍

  31. Ano Niem on June 8, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Inexpensive he said! I had to sell a kidney for it to buy the material for 4 planter boxes.

  32. OAK on June 8, 2022 at 9:56 pm

    Thanks man

  33. John Cooper on June 8, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    I build these things from great – FREE – plans and think, I’d pay a few bucks. Anyway, thanks for the plans and the instruction

  34. Lawrence Johnson on June 8, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    Great video content, thank you for sharing and providing the plans!

  35. TheNattyGorilla on June 8, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    Awesome dude! 🙌🏼

  36. CitizenVa News on June 8, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    Nice box, costs @ $35 to build. Much cheaper than what they want for a store bought one at Lowe’s/Home Depot.

  37. Anna Noe on June 8, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    Thanks!

  38. JLD Woodworking on June 8, 2022 at 10:05 pm

    It is going to move and crack a bit especially in the cross grain areas that are glued. For this outside application I would think the weathering and cracking will just give it a rustic look and be OK. I wouldn’t bother filling them cracks with sawdust as they will spread wide open soon outside…. Nice and simple build though….

  39. sureshot311 on June 8, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    When you narrate over the video with that music, you remind me of a Burnout game. Subscribed! Great video.

  40. biggdogg35810 on June 8, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    If I want to use screws instead of brad nails, how short should they be?

  41. Virginia Nalangan on June 8, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Good job. Thank you.

  42. Dan Sinclair on June 8, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Nice simple build. Is your tablesaw a Ryobi BT3000/3100? You don’t see those very often. Been using mine since the early 90s.

  43. Deb Lang on June 8, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Hey thanks for free planters plans and I am subscribed ! LOVE the COLOR coded cut plans great help !!

  44. Cake Off Malaysia Western Home Bakery on June 8, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    thank you 🙂

  45. Adam Smith on June 8, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    I made this today in about 2 hours without the right tools. Turned out great! I only used Brad nails. I’ll see how it holds up.

  46. Mike MD on June 8, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Nice, simple, clean build! I will be building a few of these with my 13 year old son, I need to teach him how to use my tools so this will be a great project to work on together. I subscribed and just requested your plans. Thank you!

  47. Евгений Сергеевич on June 8, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    А чё он весь на клею? А где уголки и черные саморезы?

  48. Tia C. Smith on June 8, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    If the plans are free then why ask for name address and phone number. Makes no sense at all so I decided to pass on the free plans!! Smh

  49. Michael Francis on June 8, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Great little project. I modified the build from the plans a bit by beefing up the internals to essentially 2×2 skeleton and added a lid. I keep it out by the garden and it has a little tool rack inside for a small trowel, clippers, garden twine, and other tools. No more having to run back and forth from the shop or garage chasing tools. Plus with the beefier frame, old folks can sit on it for a short rest.

  50. Larry Buckner on June 8, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    What kind of price would you ask for that box
