I'd like to build a cedar above ground planters box and have come up with a design that I like. I am fairly new to woodworking and have some concerns with my current plan of using screws+wood glue for all joinery. I only have a mitre saw and am not really that familiar with some of the more advanced joinery techniques.
Here is the design that i've come up with:
I was planning on using a couple of screws per vertical panel attaching to the top frame and bottom frame.
A close-up on the bottom frame itself:
Again, was just planning on using 3" wood screws to assemble the frame from cedar 2x4's with wood glue. The bottom panels here would also be screwed in longitudinally. Is this plan just asking for trouble with wood movement in the future? I'd like for this to last a few years at least and look decent as well, but i don't have access to a table saw nor do i have much joinery experience.
