This took part of a morning to put together. Cut the parts accurately and you're set to go. I did alter the vertical boards a bit since I had 5-1/2" slats, but that's OK. I also suggest considering using one-inch Kreg screws, less splitting of wood once I switched over.

This was a fun build. Depending on the type of Kreg jig, it can be difficult to get the holes centered without splitting the wood. Also if you use cedar, be careful with the joining of the 1x2 boards, they will split very easily. When I build the second one, I will predrill the holes for the pocket screws.

Great looking plan. Always double check the actual thickness of your wood especially when using cedar. It is often sold as 1" (meaning it should be 3/4" thick), but at my local big box it is closer to 5/8" thick or even 9/16". You might need to use 1" pocket screws and adjust the bit stop and the Jig settings accordingly.

I found these plans were easy to follow. The planters went together quickly, and look great. I love that the materials are quite inexpensive. Great design and finished product.

Project went well, but I had A bit of difficulty with the front and back corner slats. I had to use a pencil to Mark the edges and use a jigsaw to cut the ends. Also a couple of the 1 1/4 screw seemed to long or I screwed them in too much but ended up backing them out a little.
