Well here is my last two Months work. Tore apart my old Cedar Deck and re-purposed the wood. Put it where we used to have the kids playground, a large gravel area. Had room for 8 4' x 8' waist level boxes. Just finished drip Irrigation system. Here are some pictures.

Terry that is amazing.  Beautifully done.  I found it to be hard work building one 2x4 table top so I can appreciate the amount of dedicated effort that went into building so many TTs and with re-purposed wood. You really have created a thing of beauty. Thanks for sharing with us.

Second level

Picture of box all put together and bottom installed. 5 2"x6"'s run across the bottom of the box then I installed wire mesh, then I plastic lined the entire box. hope that was not a mistake, wanted to help prevent wood rot. poked a bunch of drain holes through plastic before adding dirt.

Very, very nice! Are the 4 corner legs solid 4" x 4" or 6" x 6"? It looks like the mid side legs are 2 pieces, short and tall, fastened together. ??

:wow1:Those are amazing looking. I'm a newbie at building stuff, so I'm just floored at seeing a pile of wood turn into such neatly-built, matching complicated (i.e. way more than just 4 pieces of wood) boxes...

Some are 6" x 6" that were the railing posts on the deck. When I ran out of those I used two 2" x 6"s nailed together. as a matter of fact, the only lumber I had to buy to finish the project where 5 2" x 6" x 8' pieces to finish the legs on the last two boxes. If I could have waited I would have had enough lumber from the rest of deck deconstruction but would have had to rip some 2" x 10"s down that had some rot on the edges. was in a time crunch to get the beds done for planting. I am planning on making a work bench at the end of my boxes. I have room to add 2 more boxes if I really wanted....maybe next year. Very Happy

That yard is a thing of beauty - I think you could sell tickets to view it later in the year!!!!  Beautifully done and will provide years' worth of nourishment and pleasure.
