The first thing to know about building a planter box is the plan, it will save you much effort giving you dimensions and details to follow.
2# Planter Box Pallets:
pallets can be found at a very low price and even sometimes for free. You want to find the most usable wood pallets as a length of 3 feet (0.9 m) and from 2.5 to 6-inches width (6.4 to 15.2 cm)
After that, detach the pallets with a jig or a circular saw to cut the ends.
