Here's the process:
The wood for our project:
2.5" red deck screws-2# (why do they sell screws by the lb? And why doesn't the box say how many screws are in it?)
You will also need a saw, a saw horse, an electric drill, an electric screwdriver, a level, a carpenter's square, a pencil and a tape measure.
David, cutting the 4x4s
Once the wood was cut, we pre-drilled the holes (above) and then screwed together the 5' sides to the 4x4s (cut at 20") with red deck screws (below).
After we got two of the long sides together, we screwed the 4' boards to them.
Above, the first two boxes are built and are 4'x5'.
The final result; 110 square feet of vegetable garden space.
The larger bed was a little more complicated, but not by much. We just did it one section at a time. The short sides are also 4', as are the middle, interior sides. The pathways are 32' wide, long sides are 80" and the back wall is 128".
