This is a combination raised garden bed and potting bench. The planter portion of the piece is removable so that it can be replaced easily when it starts to rot and fall apart. The entire thing is 4 feet by 2 feet and about 30 inches tall (built to my girlfriends specifications).
Made out of cheap fencing/decking cedar stock from Home Depot…in other words, soaking wet wood that I stickered and let dry for about 3 months. Machined it all until it was straight and then used plugged screws, glue and traditional joinery to assemble it all.
I had toyed with the idea of finishing it (I love the look of fresh cedar) but that means I’d have to refinish it every year or two…so I think it’s going to just age naturally.
Thanks for looking,
