Apply wood filler to all exposed plywood edges. Allow wood putty to completely dry according to manufacturer's directions. After putty is completely dry, sand all edges smooth.
Paint the Planter
Prime all surfaces (outside, inside, legs and underside) with exterior-grade primer and allow to dry according to manufacturer's directions. Paint or stain planter, applying two coats and ensuring that all surfaces as described above are completely covered. Dry between coats according to manufacturer's directions.
Attach Carriage Bolts
With the carriage bolt head facing the outside of the planter box, insert bolt in each predrilled hole. Screw washer and nut on bolt end and tighten with a nut wrench or socket driver.
