    I wish my wife wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. I also wish she had a pair of knee pads like yours. LOL

    Prevent termites: search online for ‘Nem-Seek’, beneficial nematodes that prey on many types of harmful insects, incl termite colonies. Near microscopic, they do not harm benefical insects, humans, or pets.

    Cedar, fir, white oak, even hemlock should last longer than pine, but cost more. It’s still a worthwhile project.

    Thanks for the vid. Good instruction. A word about the measurement of lumber. The 2″ x 10″ dimensions are BEFORE the rough-cut planks are milled to their final smoothness (some of the wood has to milled away). Nice tits, too..!

    Another good species of wood to use if it’s available in your area is Hemlock! Naturally resistant to rot.

    I think many novices wil have probs even cutting board to length, nice and square…clip is to short! But u did nice!

    It would drill easier if you set the drill to go in the right direction

    I am a beginner. Please slow down to show detail work – such as attachment of support members at 3:55. Thanks! 🙂

  20. Ellavella says:

    Awesome! Thank you very much.

    My raised beds are cedar which I think lasts the longest….pressure treated has poison in it…

    i had a garden but it was really my grandparents that i took care of for the last 7 years which was a big open plot of dirt. when i get my own garden i am doing the raised bed with grass between the boxes

  23. librarian314 says:

    I followed your directions and it was so easy! Yay! I thought it would be hard because I don’t have a lot of upper body strength but I did it! Thanks!

    I cannot imagine that such a raised bed will last long enough to justify its cost. My guess 3 years at most.

    @kokonutbaby1 I use wetted newspaper about 1/8th an inch thick. I’ve found that it biodegrades a bit faster than cardboard.
