A light pole for some string lights. Hope you enjoy. I built this planter out of basic 2x3 lumber and then I added some 1 by 4 slats. So the first thing I did was to cut all of my two by threes. I did this on. My miter saw. I used my Kreg jig to add a pair of pocket holes on every end of the shorter pieces of two by threes. I used to have the smaller heavy-duty Kreg jig pocket hole system and I was just sent this master version and it makes things so much easier. I highly recommend it to assemble the planter.
I first built two sides and I'm using two and a half inch exterior Craig screws and you'll notice that I measured about an inch up from the ground on the lower edge so that the length of two by three wouldn't be sitting flush against the patio to Assemble the planter, I started with one side that I had already built and I put this on my work table. Then I used more two and a half inch exterior Craig screws and I attached four two by three cross pieces.
That I had already cut once I had finished that I have sort of a table and I was able to invert that table structure onto the second end piece that I had already built this way, I don't have to bring out my clamps and I can use my body weight to drill down into the material. I wanted the corners of the planter to be fairly clean, so you'll notice that I mitered all of the edges to those slats. So here I am dry fitting them just to make sure I have a nice tight corner.
