Default Raised bed cedar planter

Had a couple hours to kill after work this evening so I built a raised bed planter out of some scrap cedar I had left over.
Inside box dimensions are 2'x6'. Should be able to plop a couple tomatoe plants in there. I'm gonna build another one for some strawberry plants I have ordered.
What you think ?

That's very nice. If you have any leftover cedar, feel free to drop one of those at the house.

Got another planter built, changed it up a little. I like this one better and a lot faster to build

That's very nice! Will you be lining the bottom with weed cloth so soil doesn't fall through the slats?

Yep, the first one is already planted with strawberrys, I left a 1/2 gap in the bottom to drain, covered the entire inside with weed cloth then about 6 inches of pea gravel then filled it with potting soil. Ended up havin to build a cover for the first one so I could protect my strawberrys from freezing last night

Just seen this

I cut each leg half the thickness of the other member and then glued and screwed them, like a double mortise without a tennon if that makes sense.
