MJB  I got the EMT pipe and fittings that you use for your trellis  the other day looks like it will make a good one.

Of all the yrs. that I worked in construction (even 5 yrs in a Electrial shop) I never seen a inside corner  I bent a lot of outside ones.

This would work even with a platform under the box, by adding a floor plate and a male adpt.and if nessary use some plumbers strap to anchor side ways on each end.Cheesy

Hi Bill B,  Glad you like my design. Please post some photos when you get it built. I like your idea for a free-standing adaptation for those who can't drive it into the ground.

Yes, yes, on wooden decks - lag bolts through the floor plate into wood, concrete patio - masonary bit and lead sinkers with lag bolts. Good thinking guys.

For the ground, hammer in two pieces of rebar and slip the EMT right over them.  This way, no need to sink the EMT.

I was also thinking about useing some cup hooks down along the top edge of the box to hook my netting to over the plants. Make it like a pup tent.
