This project is based on the outdoor storage bench at morelikehome.net, which was based on an Ikea outdoor storage unit.  I used 100 year old lath that I recycled from a remodeling project.  The lid of the bench lifts off, it will eventually hide the timer for a drip irrigation.

Estimated Cost
less than $30 due to recycled wood. The most expensive item was the wood glue.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
recycled lath, most likely old growth douglas fir
Finish Used
redwood stain, brand is Preserva Wood
Required Skill Level
Intermediate
