Built this potting bench for my wife. My marching orders were that it be: sturdy, weatherproof, mobile and also “look nice” so I wound up using straight grained clear cedar for the whole thing. The lumber is quite expensive, but I think it came out ok.

Ok is huge understatement. Beautiful work, what are the dimensions of this piece? I owe my wife a similar one. Thanks for sharing.

WheeHaaw! You nailed it!!
It has everything a “potter” could want … Mine is very similar, (I have two soil bins rather than one.)
You did a great job on this … I’ll bet you got extra hugs, you deserve them.
