    • Do you have plans and list of materials?
      By amachiever, on March 23, 2013

    • great for older folks that can not bend over to work a garden.
      By freddie, on March 23, 2013

    • Nice planters, I am also curious about plans for these.
      By Rattler1, on March 23, 2013

    • I am intereted in knowing what is used as the bottom and is it preforated.
      By btfishalot, on March 23, 2013

    • I would love how you made these. These will allow me to plant a small garden which I have always wanted without all the back breaking work of digging up part of my yard. Do you have plans and a list of materials?
      By MsTita, on March 24, 2013

    • Please give me info how to build and material list.
      By Maxine, on March 24, 2013

    • I used cedar for materials but you could use any untreated wood. I got the plans from this site: http://ana-white.com/2012/11/plans/counter-height-garden-boxes-2-feet-x-4-feet I modifyed the plans buy using landscape fabric to line the bottom and insides of the beds

    • ...and since I used landscape/weed blocker fabric, I was able to skip the coconut cloth the plans called for.
      By MeanGruene, on March 24, 2013

    • and you can see from my pics I also made my bed deeper then the plans by doubling up on the 1x6 for the sides
      By MeanGruene, on March 25, 2013

    • I'm making three of these today. I'm using 2x12 for mine so it will be a bit sturdier. Awesome project!

    • I used a similar pattern when I built a planter box but I lined it with hardy board and drilled holes in the bottom for drainage. I'm hoping that it will last longer instead of boards.

    • How is it on the lack of vibration What is it made of Thanks
      By Mine, on April 2, 2013

    • Vibration hasn't been an issue. The washer and dryer havent moved. Of course it's important to make sure both are level with their adjustable legs. It's a very simple project. Two platforms are 2x4 frames with 3/4" MDF decking. 4x4's are used for the legs. Back band and Base Cap moulding used for decorative touches

    • Laundry baskets are always in the way....until you need them :) Great idea for stowing them in the area where they're most needed.
      By Lynneth, on April 13, 2013

      By toolcrazy, on April 14, 2013

      By bossman, on May 3, 2013

    • Beautiful headboard! Can you tell me how you attached it to your bedframe? I'm trying to make one that is stable...not wobbly. Thanks!
      By teachermick, on April 12, 2013

    • Its attached to bedframe on the lower legs by wood screws but I also attached it to the wall first by using a french cleat on the backside at the top of the headboard
