Wheelbarrow Planter


     This project will build a Lawn Wheelbarrow Planter fashioned from a 100-year-old design we found in a 1902 Sears and Roebuck catalogue. We are going to start this project with a list of materials and tools you'll need.


  • (2) 8' 1" X 6" pieces of Cedar. You can use other woods but I prefer Western Red Cedar for planters.
  • (1) 6' 2" X 2" piece of Cedar
  • 1 1/4" Deck Screws
  • 2" Deck Screws
  • Stain with a sealer or Deck Stain

  • Table Saw or Circular Saw
  • Compound Miter Saw or Circular Saw
  • Router with 1/2" Round Over Bit and Straight Plunge Bit
  • Band Saw or Saber Saw
  • Drill Press or Hand Drill with a Counter Sink Bit

Sharpen up those saw blades because next we'll start cutting wood.
