Wall planter plans

This step by step diy project is about wall planter plans. If you want to build a beautiful triple planter that can be hung to any wall, then pay attention to the instructions described in this article. Don’t forget to take a look over the rest of the garden projects and to adjust the design and size of the vertical planter to suit your needs.

You should always plan everything from the very beginning and to adjust the size of the planter to your needs, while you can still use the woodworking techniques described in this project. Mark the cut lines on the slats before making the cuts and use a jigsaw to get the job done. You could add more planters to the structure.

There are a few tips that you should take into account, if you want to get a professional result. Therefore, take accurate measurements and use professional tool when making the cuts or when drilling pilot holes. Align the components at both ends and add waterproof glue to the joints, if you want to create a rigid structure. Round the exposed edges with sandpaper or by using a good router.

How to build a wall planter

Building the planters

Building the planters

 

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame of the planter. Cut the components at the right size out of 1×6 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the side components (the short ones) and secure them to the perpendicular ones using 1 1/4″ screws. Make sure the corners are right-angled and add glue to the joints.

Next, you have to fit the bottom to the planter. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to build the bottom out of 3/4′ plywood. Drill pocket holes along the edges and secure it to the frame of the planter using 1 1/4″ screws. Leave no gaps between the components and align the edges thoroughly before inserting the screws.

 

Fitting the side supports

Continue the project by fitting the 2×4 supports to the planters, as described in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the planter and secure it to the supports using 1 1/4″ screws. Drill a pilot holes though the top of the side supports.

 

Assembling the wall planter

Place the planters equally-spaced in order to get a professional result. Secure a metal support to the wall and hang the wall planter to it, using a piece of rope.

Last but not least, we recommend you to take care of the finishing touches. In order to get a professional result, fill the holes and the gaps with wood filler and let it dry out for a few hours.  Check if there are protruding screws and fix this issue, if necessary.

Smart tip: Apply a few coats of stain or exterior paint to the components, in order to protect them from decay and water damage. Check out the rest of the outdoor  plans featured on our website.
