Wow. Wow. Wow. My knees would really appreciate raised beds. Sadly, neither hubby nor I know the decorative from the business end of a hammer. (Do they have decorative ends? Oh well, see what I mean?) Laughing

The SFG foundation sells legs to go under the beds.

If you can built a box you can make a TT it's very easy all you need is a piece of 3/4 inch plywood and 4x4 legs take a drill, drill a pilot hole then screw in the screw. I had knee surgery a few years ago so it makes it a lot easier. Very Happy

Just wondering about the glue in the plywood when making a TT. Should I be concerned about the glue???

Do you have plastic in the bottom to prevent wood rotting?

Planning on making me some as soon as $$$ is saved up to build one or two. Very Happy

I never thought about the glue that holds the boards together. So I don't know, Mel recommends the plywood as a bottom.

No I didn't put any plastic in the bottom. but I do plan on using marine plywood when I build more boxes Very Happy

Ah, see, I'm not even hardware-aware enough to build a box! Really. We're totally baffled when it comes to stuff like that. Or plumbing. Rolling Eyes

Ply results

Post  hankyknot on 7/26/2011, 9:34 am

I used plywood for the bases of my boxes and the thing I've found is that they have started to de-laminate around the edges. Admittedly it wasn't marine ply so will be giving that a try next time and see how that goes. I will try and get some pics of the delamination and post them later.

Wow it looks great!

Your garden looks awesome! I love how everything is so organized.

I thought about doing table tops for my deck but I am worried about the weight. Are you able to move those around fairly easy?

Your pictures give me new hope!

Absolutely awesome looking.

I have wondered about drainage on a patio also. My one patio sfg I built with plywood was raised on bricks but funneled water underneath into trays to reuse.

Sounds a good idea, that way you get to keep all the nutrients washed out by the water.
