Build the Flower Box

Step 1: Cut everything down to size. Your bottom board will be an 1.5” shorter than your front and your back board.

Step 2: Add Pocket holes on the bottom board of the flower box where the front side will be. You will want to have a pocket hole every 6-8 inches.

Step 3: Add glue to either side of the bottom board and reinforce that with screws. Since you will not see the backside of the flower box I am not using pocket holes on the bottom of the board for the back side.

Step 4: Add your running boards/side pieces. Use wood glue and a clamp to secure. Once the glue dries, nail those pieces together.

Step 5: Add finishing touches to your flower box such as a stain/ paint color, etc.
