I built this potting bench for my wife a few months ago. I made the frame and table top out of inexpensive spruce 2×4’s, which I machined down for square. I had a few heavy duty hinges left over from another project that used for the drawer pull outs. The right drawer has traditional drawer box. The other 3 hold a rubbermade storage bin for each transportation of soil, handtools, etc. I’ve added some ‘twig’ drawer pulls to finish it off.

That is a really nice potting bench. You should post it on Garden Tenders also.
