It took a few days. My wife and I wanted a potting bench down stairs so we would not have to use my work shop for potting (I did say we :). I still need to add lighting and water but I am in no rush and will get to it when I get to it.
Be careful when your wife asks for a potting bench look what this turned into.

Total cost was about under $400 but I was not really keeping track.

You don’t fool around when you say you’re going to build something.

That turned into some, potting bench.

That’s quite a wind chime you have there.

Snowdog, you look like you are having way to much fun now that you are retired. Great job. I really have to make time to stop and see you one of these days.

Awesome, the entire place looks great, not to mention one incredible potting bench. Think my wife would like a slightly simpler bench but I don’t dare bring it up, she’ll add it to the to do list. Great work, BTKS
