Mr. HowToSpecialist May 22, 2013 Comments Off This step by step diy woodworking project is about how to build a strawberry tower . Building a tower planter for strawberries is a simple project with a powerful impact on the appearance of your garden.

While the first alternatives may look more intriguing, the second option is easier to build, even by persons with virtually no experience in the woodworking field. After choosing the design, we recommend you to adjust the size of the tower to your needs and budget. From our own experience, we recommend you to invest in high-quality materials, such as pine, cedar or redwood, as the components will be durable and have a nice appearance. After making the square planters, we recommend you to check if the corners are square and to fill them with soil. Make sure the layers are centered properly, as it is essential to build a strawberry tower with a symmetrical look.     Building a strawberry tower Building a strawberry tower   A  – 2 pieces of 2×6 lumber – 60” long, 2 pieces – 57″ long  FRAME B  – 2 pieces of 2×6 lumber – 47” long, 2 pieces – 44″ long  FRAME C  – 2 pieces of 2×6 lumber – 34” long, 2 pieces – 31″ long  FRAME D  – 2 pieces of 2×6 lumber – 21” long, 2 pieces – 18″ long  FRAME E […]
