Nothing TO catch... you spoke correctly.

Opaque stains also build up and flake like paint. Ugly.

Keep it clear! Werd!

Roger that! Though that's where I would have gone anyway since I like the natural wood and stone look. At least I get to procrastinate on the staining efforts for a year.

So, here's a couple of pics of the garden beds I built (upside down for now, but... )

I even managed to do it with power tools and only minimal removal of important body parts!

Looks good, Ken! You did a fine job.

What are you planning on growing?

You go, tool guy! Good show, Ken. Glad to see you had at it. I'll bet the kids would like you to leave it on he grass just like that, but fill it with sand!

With something so substantial (the vertical members) to nail/screw into at the corner joints, you could have saved some $$ and left out the metal brackets, but they won't hurt.

Ken's one of us now---"one of us, one of us, one of us!" (Ever see Todd Browning's "Freaks," from 1934??

Ken, I recently found my way to pages with a raised bed design (maybe you sent me the link?) and I noted that I really liked the idea of attaching pipes to enable covering the beds.

Nice work!

That's exactly the post I was working off of. I have the materials for the pipes, but I haven't put them on yet (obviously).

Nice Ken. Looks good and sturdy.

Only somewhat related but somehow this reminds me of a funny story. Two summers ago I visited a friends back yard that looked like a disaster zone. In lieu of levelling his lawn for a pretty good sized inflatable swimming pool, he decided to build a wooden platform for it. Of course, the platform exploded before it was even 3/4 full of water. The pool was destroyed and his lawn looked like a frog swamp.

This has no bearing on your build Ken. It looks great. Just thought I'd share the story.

Looking good Ken. Great idea on the pipes for covering. This makes me want to redo my 4 year old raised bed now - way better build than I managed back then. What are you planning to grow?

Cheers,

Uh... plants? Hadn't gotten that far. Tomatoes, maybe cukes, possibly corn.
