The wife wants to grow some herbs and asked me to build her a free standing box. Used repurposed Western Cedar from a construction site. All with a table & miter saw. Used the table saw to cut the corners off the corner posts. Put on a dado blade to cut the tongue & grooves for the 2X6 floor boards. Then dado'd the grooves for the verticals boards. Then dado'd the posts to hold the bottom & top boards in place. Cut all the boards & worked them into grooves (top & bottom). That was a challenge getting them all in place and then everything tightened up. Tight clearances! Wife loves it except for the one painted 2X4. I figured she would paint it so I didn't worry about. But she nixed that idea so I may have to replace that one board.
