Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Materials
You will need: * 1 pallet (ours measured 920mm square) * 1 x 1.2m x 1.8m heavy-duty tarpaulin (or bigger if your pallet is bigger) * 4 x 75mm x 50mm pieces of scrap wood * scissors * staple gun * hammer * clamps * power drill * 50mm screws
Cost: $10 (not including the soil for the vege bed)
Step by step: 1. Deconstruct the pallets so you end up with four panels that consist of two slats each. Hammer any remaining nails flat. 2. Cut the tarpaulin into quarters. Fold the quarters in half lengthwise and staple to the inside of the side panels. 3. Place the side panels upright to form a bed and put one piece of scrap wood in each corner. Clamp and screw in place. 4. Put your raised bed in your chosen location. Fill it with soil and plant it with your favourite veges (plus a few flowers to make it pretty!).
