Thanks @Jason and @LePallet yeah it’s definitely a mission finding straight timber and straight pallets however I have a few secret sources now haha so it’s not as bad.

@Yorky88 These are gorgeous!!! Did you make them? Can you plant directly inside of them? I would love to make something like this for my friend who has a hideous backyard....

Re: Jarrah stained planter boxes

Hi @Kim2 I sure did build these. Yep they are fine to plant straight into. I line them with weed matting first so there are issues and to protect the wood a little bit. This was a pretty simple build. If you would like any further tips or plans please feel free to send me a PM or leave another comment.

Re: Jarrah stained planter boxes

@Yorky88, Ill comment so that other people can gain your pearls of wisdom! What type of wood would you recommend for a build like this? (something that I can get from Bunnings would be a plus) 

 

Did you use any supporting bits of wood on the inside? I would love to create an exact replica :laugh: 

 

Btw ambitious newbie here, apologies for the incorrect terminology.

Re: Jarrah stained planter boxes

Hey @Kim2 yeah you can definitely get everything you need from Bunnings that’s where I got majority of the stuff required.

I used long recycled pine pallets for the timber which I managed to jag for free as they are hard to find. Especially straight ones. I then added 2 supports on each panel as well as the uprights in each corner as they are so long. I used the barer’s from the pallets for these uprights so there is little or no wastage from the pallets. I used a jarrah stain by Cabot’s that you can get at Bunnings, a box of 50mm decking screws and 6 x 100mm castor wheels for easy movability. 

 

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. I am more than happy to answer any questions. I don’t know everything and I definitely don’t have all the answers by any stretch but I am more than happy to share the knowledge I do have. Definitely no need for Apologies you gotta start somewhere. I still don’t know all the lingo either. 

 

I look forward to seeing your finished product. I’m sure it will be awesome.

 Welcome to Workshop @Pearso and thanks for joining in the discussion. 

 

Let me tag @Yorky88 for you so he sees your question. I'm sure Marty would be happy to help in any way he can - he is very passionate about pallet projects!

 

Do make sure you have a search for other raised garden beds across Workshop. We have lots of great examples that members have shared. 

 

What are you thinking about building? Is it for a courtyard area like in the photo above?
