Build this custom planter bench that adds an interesting twist to any outdoor space.
The bench is a basic build. Start with the back frame which is two posts, a cap, and a series of rails. Flip the frame and add the front rails. You'll also add the cable rail where you'll attach the wires used to hold the planters.

Build the front frame of the bench by adding the front and back rails to the legs. Join the two frames using the shelf connectors and the seat connectors. Then you can install most of the slats for the bench shelf and the seat leaving these spots open to attach the wire ropes.

With the bench built, it's time to install the clever planters. These are actually pieces of duct work I found in the heating and cooling aisle and when you open them up a little and attach these duct caps using machine screws. Either paint or leave them 'natural'. Next, drill the small holes on each end that you'll use to wire the planters onto the bench.

The wire ropes that hold the planters are secured at the bottom of the bench, and at the top so start at the top and thread the wires through the eye screws and secure them with these wire clips. Mark the height your first planter will hang at. Put some tension on the wire, and mark the measurement with some tape. Thread the wire through the holes, and shimmy your planter up and into place. Use a couple more of these wire clips to secure them, then repeat the whole process for the remaining two planters.

To secure the bottom, you pull the wire right through the openings in the bench, and using the wire clips again, secure it to the eye screws just like you did at the top.
That's it! Install the final slats, add plants, and enjoy.
