Great way to make your Workshop debut @nolifemanual. That looks fantastic. Many thanks for sharing your project with us.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. We're looking forward to seeing more of your projects and hearing about your plans. You obviously have terrific skills and experience you can share with other members and I hope you also get plenty of helpful advice and inspiration in turn.
Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have something new to share.
Looks great. Well done.
Really great job there looks great , you wouldnt have the step by step pics of how they are done ? I am looking at to build these with my daughters as they wanted a garden bed of thier own .
They look like they have either been stained or painted with fence paint ?
Thankyou for the warm welcome guys. @Johnno78 I don't have step by step guide of the bed right now hopefully I can get around to doing it. But I'll attach some progress photos - hope that helps. The garden bed was stained with Cabot's Merbeu decking stain.
Thanks heaps now i have the picture and idea of how these are done thanks for putting the pictures up and wouldnt fence pInt be cheaper then stain 😉
Do you have plans/measurements for this?
Let me tag @nolifemanual for you to ensure your question about possible plans is seen, although the member did say last week that they didn't have any step-by-step guide.
Are you building something similar?
Yes I am.
Great @wilso2310. If you need a hand, feel free to hit the Start a discussion button and ask for help. It would be more likely to be seen by a wide range of members rather than just replying here.
@wilso2310 I've written up a guide on my blog at http://nolifemanual.com/blog/2018/raised-garden-bed/ Hope that helps.
can I ask how many pallets you used? I have been looking to build something similar
The garden bed made from recycled pallets looks great for a small backyard area. The problem I have had is obtaining recycled pallets. I've tried at the Kirrawee store but have not had any luck. The staff member I asked said that it was related to public injury and they were not allowed to give them away.
Is this correct?
There are some tips for obtaining pallets from members in this very popular discussion - https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Pallet-DIY-Projects/m-p/2069
I've found most Bunnings stores are happy to supply customers any unwanted pallets, but perhaps it's best to phone ahead to avoid disappointment. Other Workshop members might like to share their experiences with you.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the community. We look forward to reading about your projects and plans. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have something to share. I'd also welcome any feedback about how we can ensure Workshop is even more useful to you.
Thanks for joining in the discussion,

This was what started my love of a combination of timber and steel. I built this bar and the stools for a mate. Pretty stoked with how they came up.
