Just before Mother’s Day, my manager said he was going to buy his wife, an avid gardener, a potting bench. Never one to lose an opportunity, I “sold him” on having me make it for him. We looked at a number of plans that he had considered and I showed him some from a couple of the magazines.

This is the result. I particularly like the slots on the bench for cleaning up the dirt and allows her to brush it directly into the bin below.

55” w x 27” d x 66” h. White oak. Titebond III. Brass screws inset with walnut plugs. Penofin Marine rosewood oil finish. Stainless steel drawer slides. Brass hooks on top and sides.
