  1. Potting Bench

    Okay, first off I must confess, this was started last spring and I moved it from my small shop to it's permanent location for assembly. At that time I did not have material for the top and just placed a couple 2xs across the top for effect, and before I knew it, it was covered with plants and...
  2. 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...
  3. Potting Bench - Becky's

    My daughter just bought an old farmhouse and they are setting up to plant flowers and a vegetable garden. I had some wood stacked on sawhorses in front of my shop for about 4 years and so I thought I'd build her a Potting Bench. The wood was identified by the sawmill owner as Atlantic White...
  4. 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...
  5. potting bench

    I was tired of seeing potting benches in stores that seemed flimsy and over-priced for what they offered, so being a crafty type, I set out to build my own. I had no plan, no measurements, and only a rough idea of what I was trying to do. I sat down with graph paper and rulers and designed...
  6. Potting Bench

    Summer time potting bench for the wife. Anniversary present to her. I used an original old door that came from our house and a window for a back. Removed a few panes of glass and inserted colored glass for color. The overhead is an old shutter door. The shelves are cedar and the trim is...
  7. 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...

  11. Cedar Greenhouse with Potting Bench

    We live in the foothills of Colorado at 7100' and growing anything outside usually turns into fodder for deer, bear, foxes, *************************, squirrels, bobcats, moles, etc… So I promised my wife I'd build her a greenhouse so she can grow vegetables and herbs without competing with the local wildlife. It...
  12. Potting Bench for my Wife

    I haven't done much woodworking this summer, it's hard to be in the shop when the weather is nice outside. Put together this potting bench a couple of weeks ago for my wife's birthday. Overall a fairly simple project, I didn't feel the need to mortise and tenon all the joints! The bench is cedar...

  14. Potting Table

    One afternoon and $0 spent! I had wanted a potting table for my front porch, and finally got it done one afternoon while my son was napping. I wanted a table that was mostly functional but pretty enough to be front and center. My table is a combination of Ana White's Simple Potting Bench and one...

  16. Cedar and Slate Potting Bench

    This is a Cedar potting bench with a slate tile top that I completed for my wife early this spring. The substrate for the top is CDX plywood and the slate was applied with construction adhesive. I then "grouted" the seams with clear exterior grade silicone and sealed the slate. The bin is for...
  17. Cedar Potting Bench

    This project was made from Western Red Cedar. The plans I had called for basic butt joints in most of the project; however, I wanted to make a stronger and more rigid product. I done a dado joint in all the cross members in the legs which made them a much stronger and less rickety potting...
  18. End Grain Cutting Boards

    Here are a few end grain cutting boards I just made. Walnut, cherry, and maple, flooded with mineral oil, then finished off with a coat of beeswax. In one of you photos you can see me cross cutting after the first glue up using the new sled I'm building. I'll post that in a separate project once...

  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So, my first project is going to be a potting bench for my wife, which will live over the summer on our deck, which faces east. Obviously, I plan to make it out of cedar. My primary questions are: (1) Does the cedar need to acclimate? For how long? I read that wood should acclimate for...
