Now, cut the wood with a jigsaw.

3. Attach together using a brad nailer or a hammer and some nails. 4. Once your box is constructed, lightly sand it before you paint the exterior using your favourite summer colour and your roller brush. 5. To create the legs of the planter, cut each dowel in half using a jigsaw. Find and mark the center of the dowel and drill a small hole into the base of each one. 6. Mark the location of each leg 3” away from the edges on the inside of the finished planter. Drill a small hole for each leg at the bottom of the box. Grab the dowels and, using the wood screws, attach them from above. 7. Add your plants and enjoy!
