Learn how to build a wooden planter stand using treated 4″ x 4″s to house a large cast iron planter that I’ll use to grow tomatoes in the new garden area.


To make the planter base, cut 8 pieces at 20″ and 8 pieces at 13″

Use 3.5″ deck screws to toe-screw the pieces together on an angle using an impact driver

Clamp the layers together and use 6″ deck screws to secure

Mark the area on the top layer where the round cast iron pot will sit and use the chain saw to notch out

Once the base is assembled, move the planter into place.
