Ipe Raised Vegtable Garden

Made some good progress on the raised garden over the weekend. Worked in the garage with my neighbors John and Eric on various things as we recovered from too many Pabst Blue Ribbons. The ipe is amazingly hard and I really think this planter is going to last longer than I am. Today I sanded, predrilled, finished, and waxed the ipe. Hopefully I'll get it partially assembled this evening.
Before the planks were oiled.

Are you following a blueprint for the garden or did you design it yourself? I have a yard but the soil's of pretty poor quality and I thought about doing a raised garden.

I just kind of winged it. There is a ton of info out on the web about soil mixtures etc.
