I wanted a bench to hold my water stones. I made the bench the same height as my workbench and have placed next to my bench so that I can quickly touch up the edge on a tool. The pine came from a 2×12 I had been using as scaffolding to paint our stairwell. The stone holders came from a leftover piece of QSWO I had. I did buy the tub specifically for this project for $2.97.

Do what you can with what you’ve got. Looks great.

Great idea, like your stone holders.

Looks great, a much fancier version of the setup I built a couple months ago. What’s nice about this design, is that you can use the stone bases on a regular table if need be.
