At this point we proceed with the assembly, bringing one side closer to a short part, so that they are flush against thread, and fixing the screws from the outside. Once the structure has been made, the bottom will have to be assembled: three long boards will have to be joined with a vertical square in the center of the boards. After fixing it from the outside with screws, you will have to make some holes on the bottom with the drill, to allow the water to escape. Once this is done, you will have to assemble the bottom and 4 strips (the feet) on the planter, and give a coat of tar to make the planter waterproof.
