DIY Hexagon Planter - Home & Family

Home Depot's Dave Hauer is in the backyard making a beautiful planter for your garden.

DIRECTIONS:

2 x 12 in. x 8 ft. Pressure Treated Boards

  • (12) 30 in. cuts with an inside angle of 30 degrees (exterior boards)
  • (12) 28½ in. cuts with an inside angle of 30 degrees (interior boards)

1 x 3 in. x 8 ft. Poplar Boards

  • (6) 30½ in. with an inside angle of 30 degrees (exterior trim)
  • (6) 28 in. cuts with an inside angle of 30 degrees (interior trim)
  • (6) 6 in. cuts

Our planter has a 60 in. diameter with 30 in. sides. The height of our planter is 24 in.
If you would like to make a different sized hexagon planter, the radius is equal to the length of the six planter sides. Example: a 48 in. diameter planter would have 24 in. sides. Adjust accordingly to fit your needs.
