Barn Yard Potting Bench



I built this bench using Ann whites plans but added my own flare. I used hardware cloth for mounting tools and my neighbors old cedar fence he was throwing away helped me cover up the pine and help give it that old look. My other neighbor was throwing away an old gate door that I couldn't let go to waste so I cut it down to size and sanded the top. I cut a hole in the top and covered it using a metal mesh from old lawn furniture that was getting thrown away. a dust collection system from my table saw and a home depot bucket helps my wife collect potting soil. seal it up with spar urethane and we are Good to Hook. let nothing go to waste.
