Popular Post difalkner Posted February 15 Popular Post Report Share Posted February 15 This is quite a bit different from what I normally build but here goes anyway. A few months ago we bought 12 five gallon food grade buckets to build a bucket garden. At first we were going to build it in a 3x4 configuration but decided to build it in a 2x6 configuration instead. I bought the treated 2x4's and engaged our 14-year old grandson to assist. We cut the 10' 2x4's to the proper length for the long stretchers and since he had limited time that's all we did for a few days. But he wanted to help build it so I waited until he could help again. When he was available his best friend wanted to help, as well. So Monday afternoon, the day before Valentine's day (critical info for later) I picked them up from school and we hit the shop. Three hours later we had a finished bucket stand! And they learned a lot about working in a shop environment as well as using tools brand new to them, so it was a good day. When my wife got home from work I showed her the bucket stand and told her that since I'm a guy and the next day was Valentine's Day, then Happy Valentine's Day! It didn't matter to her that I should have built this months ago so that was a good thing. Now we have to get dirt and begin planting whatever she wants to grow. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
