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. Wood Asphalt Composite material Road surface Automotive exterior

Very nice box but MY wife would not like being called THE wife
Makes her sound like a thing instead of the woman you married.

So I'm getting ready to put the dirt in the box (went to Lowe's & Home Depot & picked up the herbs for my wife) and it struck me that maybe I should seal it with something. But I don't know what I should use. Any suggestions from the pros?

I like the plastic thing as opposed to any harsh water replant sealer, because your gonna' have edible herbs in there
It's going to be great to step outside cut some spices for that favorite dish, well done !
