This is a potting shed that was built by a team of our West Michigan Woodworking Guild members. There was a citywide project to build some kind of structure that would be auctioned or raffled off to raise money for the local Habitat for Humanity benefit. We chose to build a potting shed and it had to be a certain size because it was being built on the second floor of Johnson’s Workbench ( Guild meeting place) and had to be lowered through an 8’ x8’ hole in the floor. Ours was auctioned off and the lucky winner sent us the first picture of it in her back yard. The other pictures are of its display location downtown. This was designed on a napkin at a local coffee shop like a lot of good projects!
