Simple Potting Bench

Submitted by JayPayne on Fri, 04/09/2021 - 13:27

This potting bench was exactly what I was looking for. Ana's materials list and cut list were perfect. The instructions were simple and precise which all made the project easy.

I used white pine with a deck stain and sealer. Cedar or pressure treated lumber might last longer, but cedar was expensive and PT was too heavy. So I kept it simple and I'm sure with the deck sealer this bench will last for years.

I used pocket screws and wood glue which made the bench extremely sturdy.
