    They will certainly do …

    They are great. You said they are not perfect but it’s outdoor furniture and wouldn’t want it to look like indoors furniture, so all I can say is just perfect..

    Great looking planters 😉

    Update: the first 1 minute got me seasick on your cam but the rest is great and like it

    Last thing I noticed at the end – decking boards are pressure treated but only so far into the wood. When you cut the boards you’re exposing untreated wood. I seal the ends as I put them together with either external wood glue, clear silicone or raw linseed oil depending on what I’ve got to hand with the raw linseed oil being the last choice.

    The end products look amazing!

    Not perfect !! Blumming brilliant pal

    A great example to other You tubers! No waffle, no shouting at us, just well presented and a good product at the end. Well done!

    Nice work.

  9. Philip White on July 3, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    you make it look so bloody easy!

  10. VIKAS ANAND on July 3, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Great Job Sir , How did you work out the capping dimensions .. please advise

  11. Brian Ford on July 3, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    should have brought the plastic up and under the top frame

  12. Stevie G on July 3, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Just finished making mine after carefully following your video. Thanks, you made it really easy to follow for the complete amateur like me!
    Just a quick question, did you screw in the slats that act as the bed of the planter?
    Thanks again
    Steve

    Check for used decking, lot of it being stripped out. Cleans up like new with scrubbing or pressure washing.
    Frame from decking cut in strips screwed together to obtain thick ness
    All wood surfaces not seen coated with old engine oil.
    If painting overall coat all wood before construction with old engine oil. It dries fast and odourless and really preserves the wood. Can be then under coated and painted with modern acrylic.

    Really Nice job

    Great looking planters, but I have a question. I’m wondering why not have the lining come over the top of the walls (under the capping). It was cut short of the top, any reason for that? Seems like an opportunity for water to run down between the lining and the walls.

  16. Dean Wheldrake on July 3, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Brilliant.. im going to make some

  17. chauntell wilcox on July 3, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I’ve been looking for tips so I can have a go at building my own since I have left over decking, I really enjoyed this video and it was really helpful thanks!

  18. Nick Smith on July 3, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Basically

  19. Realist on July 3, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Nice

  20. FRANK HOLEHOUSE on July 3, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    100% perfect I struggle doing the mitre .

  21. Alun Richards on July 3, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Real good idea, and looks brilliant .How about a small work bench for garden shed?🤔🤔🤔👍

  22. StRaFe`` on July 3, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    what size are the timbers that you fix the decking too ?

  23. Martin Taylor-Beeby on July 3, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    I will definitely use your video as a great guide to building my own. Thanks.

  24. Robert Smith on July 3, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Chewing yourself to bits with circular saw use a mitre saw. And clamp both ends of timber. Done in half the time. Of course if you have one 😂

  25. kevin harlow on July 3, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    where do i get plastic for in side box

  26. Equalizing Force on July 3, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Come on mate, how much did it cost for materials? People watching this are cheap skates 🙂

  27. jacc88888 on July 3, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Thanks for the video. I’ve read on their website that the wickes decking is pressure treated pine. Some say that pressure treated wood leeches toxins into the soil. Do you know anything about this or is it scaremongering?

  28. Zeb on July 3, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    I like the idea of using a miter on the ends, definitely makes a change to the standard way of doing things. Small tip, when using a miter saw it’s important to let the blade stop before pulling it out but you don’t have to do this with a circular saw. As it moves, you’ve got more chance or grabbing the wood and getting some kick back or marking it. Your cut at 6:50 shows you wobble the saw slightly. If that had been the other way you’d have caught your piece of wood. Best to cut straight through to avoid this.

  29. Roger Barnett on July 3, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Where did you buy the hammer-stapler thingy?

  30. Ali Mirza on July 3, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you

  31. Sarah Therese on July 3, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    I’m about to make a planter this weekend, my first DIY project ever! Your video is really helpful thank you 🙂

  32. Realist on July 3, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Nice box

  33. Scugog on July 3, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    why does all the wood have that lined texture?

  34. Ken James on July 3, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Very nice planters – well done 👍

  35. Realist on July 3, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Nice box

  36. Simples Meerkat on July 3, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Giving me the courage to try these.

  37. Herbie Derbie on July 3, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Very good and easy to follow. I will be making one soon based on your method

  38. Jess Vasquez Cruz on July 3, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    Amazing!! Thanks for sharing! I will be using this for making my first planters!!

  39. Lyn Jermey on July 3, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    They look lovely.

  40. A G on July 3, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    💙ty

  41. Christine Hughes on July 3, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    Have you got any for sale

  42. Mohammed Ali on July 3, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Absolutely amazing. I was admiring the hanging baskets for the first part of the video lol. You have done a fine job. Did the capping at the top stay in tact through all the seasons, as I know wood will expand/contract with the rise and fall in temperature. Also did you cut the all four pieces of the capping to the measurements you did in one go, or did you cut one piece, bolt it on, and then mark the second piece by placing it on the secured piece and so on… sorry if the question does not make sense. I am asking because I know some people swear by securing one piece down first, and then marking the second piece up off the first one. Cheers, Ali.

  43. Paul McAllister on July 3, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Just used your idea and made a smaller version yesterday to hide my well. Looks great! Thanks for the idea.

  44. Brian Ford on July 3, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    surely there wil be drainage between the boards seems like an unnecessary step

  45. Alan Shaw on July 3, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Looks 10 times better than the one I made. But that was before I saw your vide. Great job.

  46. Paul McAllister on July 3, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Looks great. I am thinking about building this to cover a well. Your grass looks nice and green. What kind of wood were you using? Cedar?

  47. tania macdonald on July 3, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Thank you for creating this video

  48. Denise Goates on July 3, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    I really like the way you done these. Is there anyway yo can give me feet and inches.

  49. Retired Painter on July 3, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Better off with a chop saw so much easier

  50. Joe Morris on July 3, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    These look great, thanks!
