I did this potting bench for my mother, kind of copied it from another lumberjock walkeratl. I traded this potting bench for a the work bench in the picture my mother had that used to be my dad`s. He didn,t do much woodworking but he`s had it for years. Well I know, kind of a steal but ain`t that what mothers are for?

Very nice. I like the color and design. That woodworking bench should serve you well for many years.

Thanks Rodrigo, I used 2×4 of pine for all the frames and Eucalyptus decking for the Bench top and the underneath shelf. Its finished with Cetol Deck Finish Teak Color.
