Vertical Corner Planter – DIY Free Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about garden vertical corner planter plans free. Today I share these simple plans for a simple corner planter with an A-frame shape. If you are into rustic designs or you have some pallet wood you need to use, you should take a look over my plans. You can easily adjust my plans to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.

We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Building a vertical corner planter

Building the frame components

Building the frame components

The first step of the project is to build the frame for the corner planter. As you can easily see in the diagram, you need to make an angle cut to the top of the supports. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges.

Assembling the frame of the planter

The next step of the project is to lock the frame of the corner planter together tightly. Drill pilot holes through the top of the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them together tightly. Add glue to the joints and make sure the edges are aligned with attention.

Fitting the back slats

The next step of the project is to attach the 1×6 slats to the back of the frame. Attach the slats to the frame and align the edges with attention. Leave no gaps between the slats and insert 2″ nails to lock them into place tightly. Use a jigsaw / circular saw to make the angle cuts to the slats. Smooth the edges with sandpaper for a professional result.

Fitting the shelves

Fitting the shelves

The next step of the project is to attach the shelves to the frame of the corner planter. Use 1×4 lumber for the shelves and 1×1 lumber for the supports. Use 2″ nails to lock the supports to the frame of the planter and then attach the shelves into place. You can change the angle of the shelves to suit your needs.

Last but not least, you need to fill the holes with wood putty and then to smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper.
