Thomas Comments Off on 16×16 Pavilion – Free DIY Plans

If you want to learn more about how to build a 16×16 pavilion you have to take a close look over the free plans in the article. This square outdoor pavilion has a simple structure and it is super easy to build, if you have some tools and know the basic woodworking techniques. You will need at least one more person to assist you and to help you with stepping the posts. More garden projects HERE.

If you want to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to plan everything with attention, as to prevent costly mistakes and to build a professional garden bench. Invest in high quality materials, such as cedar, pine or redwood, as the structure will be exposed to all kinds of weather. Apply a few coats of paint over the components, to enhance their appearance and to protect them from bad weather.

I recommend you to check if the components are locked into place properly and structure is rigid enough for your garden. Make sure there are no protruding screws or sharp edges. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with sandpaper. Fill the planter with soil and then plant the vegetables. Drill a few holes through the bottom, for drainage.

PRO TIP: Apply several coats of paint or stain over the components, in order to protect them from decay. Check out the rest of the project to learn more about building garden projects.
