Potting bench made with left-over Malaysian mahogany decking lumber, with a 100 year-old slab of soapstone from a kitchen remodel. Marine finish. The seagrass is made of steamed/bent mahogany.

Very nice. This is on my “to do” list, but mine won’t be as nice. Great use of left over materials. Thanks for the post.

A potting bench post is a sure sign of spring! But I have to tell you, this one is far to beautiful to put a tub of dirt on! Nice job! It would look great in an hall entryway.

WOW. I am in progress on a potting bench that is MUCH simpler than that! Reclaimed PT 2×4s top to bottom… No matter how nice I make this, it will always be an ugly duckling compared to yours… You set the bar REALLY high!
