This project comes from our son-in-law Matt. He is a fine woodworker and makes this Zen Garden as a really neat gift.
1/4" in from one edge cut a 3/16" deep 1/8" wide groove to fit the plywood. This should be a snug fit so the sand does not leak out.
Cut the plywood to fit within your frame grooves.
Assemble it using glue on the miter joints and small finishing nails.
For the rake cut the 3/8" dowel 1' long.
Thanks again Matt for an easy to build but great looking project.
