I’m excited about joining this workshop. I have 3 abandoned pallets which I want to convert into planter boxes. I’ve no idea how to start. I plan them to be about 900mm long by 450mm wide and 600mm high. I’m also conscious that once filled, they can bulge with soil pressure sideways. Some advice on cross ties would be helpful.
Lol everyone seems to have free pallets
If you are concerned with structural integrity
Then I suggest you use Treated Pine Frame
BTW if it's going to be placed onto a balcony or raised deck then you might want to read this
Great to have you onboard @lcantem. We're excited that you could join us and trust that you will receive lots of great advice and inspiration for this project and many others to come from our community members.
We have lots of very keen pallet wood recyclers in the community, including @Yorky88, @LePallet, @Jamespeter100, @ProjectPete and @woodalwaysworks. I'm sure they will be happy to give you a hand with this terrific planter box project.
