This window box can be hung from a window or used as a planter on a balcony.
Itís a simple project that can be made by anyone. All the cuts are straight,
except for a few simple mitres.
Step 1: Cut all the parts (the link is at the bottom of the page that will take
you to the list) from pine or other timber of choice. A power mitre saw makes it
easy, but itís not essential. Faye used a Ryobi cordless 18 volt saw for most
cuts, and a tenon saw for the notches in the dividers.
Step 2: Screw the aluminium angle to the rails first (thereís not much room for
drill or driver when the box is assembled), then glue and screw the frame
together. Use a good exterior adhesive such as Aquadhere Exterior or Durabond.
Step 3: Glue and nail the cladding on, followed by the capping. Drop in the pot
supports onto the aluminium angle.
Step 4: Stain or paint the box with an appropriate exterior finish.
Step 5: Pop in your favourite plants.
Leave the plants in the pots
you bought them in. That way you wonít even get dirt under your nails!
