Every summer the little lady and I say, “We should have a garden!” And at the end of every summer the little lady and I are in the grocery store holding bell peppers wondering why we never planted a garden. I hypothesize our problem is that our plans are so large that we never start.
To curtail such problems I made a small herb garden designed by Steve Marin on Woodworking For Mere Mortals.
I followed the instructions laid out in the video.
Everything is made from pine 1×4, 1×6, and 2×4. Steve finished his with a deck stain and I opted not to do that simply because I am curious how the wood will hold up over the summer.
The wonderful thing about woodworking is that there are many ways to arrive at the same result. Steve used a chop saw and jigsaw. I used a Japanese ryoba.
If we do not grow any thing this summer then I am going to convert the planter into a trebuchet.
