Ways with wood with Mark Rayner - Project 28

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: four 900mm colonial fence pickets, 22mm treated plywood cut to the following dimensions: three at 750mm x 200mm for the shelves and two 750mm x 50mm for the lower shelf supports, 50mm galvanised jolt head nails, circular saw, sandpaper, set square, six strawberry plants, tape measure, six terracotta pots, good quality potting mix, hammer, paintbrush, pencil and exterior PVA glue. Resene Waterborne Woodsman Penetrating Oil Stain tinted to Resene Woody Bay.
