Redwood Garden (planter) Boxes

Hi, my name is Rick-Taiemon Aoyagi-Clark. I started woodworking my junior year in High School and feel in love with it almost instantly. I needed something that would occupy my time and keep me out of trouble. Since then, I have worked with wood whenever I have had the time. Over the years, I have built shelves, cabinets, desks and such. Then I learned that gardening was a great way to relieve stress and at the same time watch something beautiful grow and blossom. While planting my first tomato plant, I had a great idea. Why not build planter boxes (I call them Garden Boxes). I drew down some plans and began cutting lumber. The joy that I discovered soon led me to build other garden decorations like potting benches, garden bridges, arbors and, just about anything that one would like in their garden. I felt that my garden boxes were special and thought maybe other people would enjoy them in their gardens too. I have standard sizes that range from one foot square to five feet but, I also take custom orders and prices are based on square foot. I am also designing other shapes to add to the variety.
