Whenever possible, I like to cut biscuits with the base of the joiner sitting flat on my bench with the joiner sides aligned with the edges or ends of the piece being cut. Use a scrap piece of leg stock as a spacer to align the biscuit joiner with the bottom of each leg prior to cutting. Make sure the inside face of each board is oriented down on the bench when cutting biscuit slots to attach to the legs. One thing you'll notice is that the slots cut in the two adjacent sides of each leg interfere with each other. I applied two coats of Circa 1850 Tung 'N' Teak oil finish to protect my planters and keep the wood looking fresh.
The only remaining step for this weekend project is to find something beautiful to plant in these new additions to your backyard. Cedar Rectangle Raised Planter Boxes are ideal, too, for homeowners whose yards are frequently visited by rabbits, deer, and other plant loving animals. If you use ready-made 2x2 balusters, give them a good sanding with 80- to 100-grit paper to eliminate mill glaze and remove any splinters. Cut a piece of scrap first and check the fit over your actual railing before completing any final cuts.

Next, when cutting the slots in the sides and ends, align the side of the biscuit joiner flush with the bottom of each board. Also, mark and cut slots in the side of the base board of the planter, as well as matching slots in the ends and sides. If you drill at an angle, up from the bottom of the side boards, these drainage holes won't interfere with your deck railing. Even if your home is equipped with only a small patio, you'll find room for this Cedar Rectangular Raised Planter Box.
They replace those ugly nursery-grade containers that plants come in, and can be made to straddle whatever thickness of deck or fence you have at home. As well, resting the joiner on the bench is much more stable than relying on the tool's fence. This arrangement results in the planter legs extending below the bottom of the planter box by an amount equal to the thickness of the leg stock.
But in something light and small such as these planters, reduced biscuit size doesn't reduce joint strength enough to matter.
To prevent the holes from clogging, put a layer of gravel in the bottom of each planter before filling with soil.

If you don’t have a railing that could use some floral pick-me-ups, the planters can easily stand on their own. You must still mark the inside and outside faces of each board, as well as the tops and bottoms, so that things don't get mixed up.
Next, apply glue along the long sides of the base board, insert biscuits and clamp the base to the sides. Raised container gardens are perfect for people with limited space, or for those who have a hard time bending over and kneeling on the ground for traditional gardening.
Later, as you cut your boards to size, you should be able to position your cuts to avoid the largest of the knots, leaving you with a project of predominantly clear cedar.
