I built this potting bench last week for one of my sons. Bought one of those U-Bild plans. There was some information missing, and a couple of dimensions I would change if I were to do it again. Anyway, it turned out OK, and it’s ready to go out the door. I built it from cedar (Western Cedar, I believe. The non-aromatic type), and finished it with urethane. I’m hoping he’ll get years of use from it while providing his family with fresh vegetables.

Good looking and well made potting bench! Like the wood and the shelves. I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed and used.
