make the saw cuts for the rabbet joint Cut the members and rebate the ends

Cut the four planter box sides from 150mm x 50mm (2"x6") lumber.

Make two pieces 600mm (24") long and two at 350mm (14") long.

Mark where the rebates are to go at both ends of the two side pieces.

chisel out the rebates for the rabbet joint Set the blade on an adjustable circular saw to the required depth (about 2/3 of the thickness of the lumber).

Make repeated saw cuts over the area to be rebated. The more saw cuts, the easier the rebate will be to clean out. (See picture).

Finish cleaning out with a sharp chisel.
