finished this up for my SIL. She wanted something rustic for her backyard potting projects. It’s made from pallets. It 36 inches to the work surface and 45 inches long, about 20 wide Has a grate in the middle so potting soil falls into the bucket below. Two shelves and a pallet wood backsplash.

A handy usable piece!

May have to “borrow” the idea in a couple of months.

Ralbuck, please be my guest.
Monte, thank you and yep I’m going to make some jigs that will allow me to bang them out. I think this spring should be good for selling them. My neighborhood is full of yard fanatics.

At the risk of repeating myself….
That is one awesome potting bench!!!

I really like how you incorporated the slats, for the dirt to fall through.
That makes the entire surface usable!!!

Yeah, spring time is when these WILL sell the best….
Ya got all winter to make a million of them. Good luck!!!

Nice, Denny! I like the grate, too. Is it removable? Thanks for sharing.
