Cedar Window Boxes Project

Updated: Dec 27, 2019



Before

Our window planter boxes were old and tired and my wife asked me to build her some new ones out of Cedar for Mother's Day. It took a lot longer than I expected and cost more than I anticipated, but that is about par for the course for most of my DIY projects. Check out the full video on YouTube here:


I used cedar boards that were about 3 1/2 inches wide by 3/4 inches thick by 10 feet long. Each window box was 8 inches tall, 8 inches deep and 4 feet wide. Each window box took about 4 of these boards. I bought all of my boards at the local hardware store, but I feel that they were overpriced and if I decide to build more planter boxes like this in the future, I will definitely try to find the wood for a better price.


All in all it was a fun build and I think that my wife really appreciated them. Hopefully they last a long time!
