I’ve made raised beds for 3 clients.

I use 2×6 Port Orford cedar, a wood

well suited for outdoor use.


The angles were rarely 90 degrees, so I borrowed

a technique I use in my furniture-making-


Then I drill a hole through both pieces and slide a

length of 3/8″ re-bar into the hole.


I leave about 4″ of re-bar sticking up,so they can

slide an arched tube over the re-bar and create a

protective covering for the beds.

The black bicycle grips slide over the re-bar and

prevent injury when the protective covering is not used.rbeds
