Thanks folks.  Here are the final steps.  Oh, those 2 cross braces are toe nailed.  You can also off-set them from each other to make screwing easier.

Marking the squares and drilling the holes. The box is 3.5' x 3.5' so there are some partial squares.

I siliconed the seams, and installed the 1" PVC "cup holders", top screws for a string grid and the commercial grade weed fabric. Now it's a matter of filling with existing Mix from some pots and making some more.

Sanderson, if I was younger, I would have my son-in-law build a couple of these.  Your table top is amazing.

The treated 4x4 is 8' and rather expensive for wood so they are 2' tall.  A tad short for planting, but great for tending and harvesting.

Last photos, promise.  The 4" PVC and cap were left over from a prior worm tube experiment.  I knew there was a reason I held on to it for 3 years!  Garlic and bok choy starts.

WOWOWOWOW!  Very nice!  I know you have plans.....I have more plans than SFG....

Our worms would freeze solid up here......not yours though. But mine are good in the compost pile!  Toasty.
