1x6 Cedar Pickets

I finished these last weekend and finally took pictures.

I found 44 5' cedar pickets on craigslist for $30 and built these raised beds. I built them according to Ana's instructions except
I made them bigger (4'x8'). Since my boards were 5' long I couldn't
span the entire length and went with a brickwork style overlap so there
wasn't one seam in the center or a weird off-center seam. And, of course, I blogged about it.

I just made one of these last weekend too--same size, except I was not so lucky as to find cedar on CL. I had to buy mine, which made them approximately $80. Still much cheaper than the ones we were looking at online.
Yours look great!
