These were made using the Tall Planters plan...4 cedar pickets for each one. I also used cedar rough cut trim for the 1x2's and 1x3's. They are painted to match cedar shutters I made for my parents mountain house. I used Cabot's Solid Color Acrylic Deck Stain in Evergreen to protect the planters exterior. The only alteration to the plans was adding the top trim. I used 1x2's cut at 16" long each on a 45 degree angle to form the box. I glued and nailed together the trim before nailing into the tops.
