While this simple windowbox project has the charm of a picket fence, it offers some great lessons in building for the outdoors. Underneath its cottage-style appearance lies a sturdy framework that easily supports a heavy-duty plastic liner filled with potting soil and plants. The construction is designed to shed water like a duck’s back for maximum durability. All this is accomplished by combining strong but light cedar, durable joinery, and some classic details. With an easy weekend’s worth of effort, you’ll enjoy the rewards of its design (and the blooms) season after season.
