  1. Potting Bench from Recycled Wood •

    Jan 13, 2017 One day I was visiting a neighbor who was rebuilding steps up to his deck. The wood he was replacing was stacked in a pile and he asked me if I wanted it or else he was going to throw it out. Of course I said yes. SWMBO was hinting about getting a potting bench and I thought these...
  2. Potting Bench

    This was made for the monster-in-law for her birthday in Austin, TX and strapped to the roof of the SUV and carted all the way to San Luis Obispo, CA. Made of cedar, assembled with stainless hardware. It's a really nice design I found online for free.
  3. Improved Drying Rack: My First Commission

    This is a repeat of a project I had done earlier. I was walking through my harvest room with a friend when I said mostly to myself "I need to build a few of these to sell". She ordered one on the spot, which I grossly underbid myself on, but oh well on that front. I really like some of the...
  4. Raised garden beds & square foot gardening

    This is some green stuff from even more green woodworker. Saw Stevemarin's planter boxes and decided I needed something to plant in for my own garden. Made of untreated pine 2×8s. Impregnated and painted the pine. Lined the inside with plastic sheet. This should separate wood from soil...
  5. Gardening / Potting Bench from Reclaimed Lumber

    I've got a collection of old fence boards from a long neglected, poorly constructed fence … as it falls over or the nails can just no longer hold in the rotted ends I remove the boards and stack them in a pile to rot a bit more. Finally decided I should do something with them and I'd been...
  6. Drying Rack and Trays

    Sorry about the photographs. The lighting was not my friend on some of these. This is a fun project that would be great practice for traditional joinery in context with room for error. I have some decorative elements I need to do to this should I ever get time…but the unit needed to be put to...
  7. Cedar Planter Box

    I purchased this plan from PlansNow and made a planter box out of Eastern Cedar for my wife's flowers. Assembled with butt dados and screws, the panels are multiple boards that ride in a groove in the top and bottom rails. Obviously this can have some serious expansion and contraction through...
  8. 7x lumberjocking: hot tub, deck, swings, arbor, firepit, birdhouse, hammock swing

    This is my latest woodworking project :) Had an "unloved" corner in our small garden, therefore we decided to turn it into a quiet relaxation spot. Minimum square feet - maximum use. Basicly all the necessary tools were: a handsaw, a pencil and a spirit level. Wood is treated pine. Photos...
  9. Potting bench and bird feeder, all reclaimed wood

    My wife wanted a potting bench and I had enough 2×4's and pallets from the dump to finally build one. I made it mobile because our garden is on the other side of the house and I wanted her to be able to take it right to the garden. I made a handle that slides in and out (pic 2 and 3) This makes...
  10. Harvest Rack

    The purpose of this pine rack is to provide air circulation around vegetables suited for longer-term storage (onions, squash, potatoes). If you wanted to put together a gift for a gardener friend, this one would set you back about $50 in wood and an afternoon. Here's a link to the SketchUp...
  11. Cedar Planter Box

    Along with woodworking I have a huge passion for gardening. About 5 years ago I built three 6' long planter boxes for my backyard. Late this summer I had the opportunity to build another one for a gal who had seen mine while on a garden tour I hosted. This is a very easy project for anyone to...
  12. Supersized Planter Box

    I designed this specific planter box for a friend according to her specifications, with the design being inspired by a picture she saw on Pinterest. She wanted a really deep tall planter, with a modern look featuring thin spaced out slatted boards. Cedar would have been ideal, but my friend...
  13. Rimu wooden spoon and plum dibber

    Made for a mate: the spoon was carved from an old rimu fence post. The plum is from our big old plum tree that split about a year ago. Managed to save the tree, and now have lots of firewood! (and some set aside for working with :))
  14. Raising Gardens and Families

    Once I said to my oldest daughter, "I don't want to do things for you, but I would love to do things with you." I think she took offense to that … at first. As time went by, I think she understood what I meant. Life is made up of time spent. Some of the most wonderful time is spent doing...
  15. Custom Birdhouse!

    making tons of houses for Mothers day! we had 4 kids go in on this one for their parents. Enjoyed doing it! Michael www.bowenbirdhouses.com
  16. Recycled Shipping Crate Planter

    Long Island City Jay Greene Recycled Shipping Crate recycled for 'Grandpa Ott' Morning Glories. Steel wire stretched to steel frame above forming the trellis and manipulated to guide vines and create composition of plant. Different wood and scraps used decoratively on crate sides. 2013
  17. Elevated Gardening Bin

    Made this elevated herb gardening bin for a client. Made out of pressure treated lumber to resist rot & decay, construction adhesive, and exterior wood screws. Boards on the bottom are spaced slightly apart for drainage.
  18. Strawberry Pyramic

    Some of my best projects are from my wife's honey do list. She saw a picture of one of these and asked - "hey, want to build me something".... This was fun. Nothing terribly intricate or fancy - used treated pine - but the compound cuts for the slats were a bit of a challenge. Can't wait until...
  19. Harvest Basket (Garden Trug)

    Build Instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Harvest-Basket-Garden-Trug/ Video of Build: This is a simple design built from reclaimed wood and purchased ¼" wood slats. It cost very little and only took a couple of hours to complete the build. The goal was light weight, shallow and...
