Attach Bottom

Insert the 22" x 22" (bottom) panel inside the planter so it rests on top of the posts. Center the panel. Secure the bottom by drilling 1 5/8" screws through the bottom panel and into the posts.

Attach Rough-Sawn Cypress Trim

Using finishing nails, attach four 24" trim pieces to each side panel of the planter box. Equally space pieces, assuring that top and bottom trim sits flush to edges and covers nail heads. Attach four 25-1/2" trim pieces to the front and back panels, aligning with the 24” trim pieces on side panels. Tap pieces into place with a hammer.

Drill Pilot Holes for Decorative Carriage Bolts

To make a marking jig (template), drill holes, spaced 5 inches apart and 2 1/2" from each edge, in a 24" piece of trim. Place jig atop each attached trim piece, and using the 5/16" bit, drill holes through trim piece and plywood planter. You will drill a total of 80 pilot holes.
