My Potting Bench

I've always wanted a Potting Bench especially after I completed redoing my garden, all by myself. I had seen ones to purchase, too expensive, had seen kits which I almost bought, but I really wanted quality and to make it myself. I've always been a do it yourselfer and crafter. I discovered Ana White, became a fan, bought her book and started making a list of what I wanted to make. But first was getting over my fear of a circular saw. With Ryobi'si promotion this year, I bought one, extra battery and again made my list of the tools I want to get next. Well, I got over my fear, made my potting bench and I love it. My family and friends can't believe I made it! I've only ever made a bench with a jig saw before. Next on my list is a outdoor seat with cushions, a raised vegetable box, a working bench for inside my garage and restoring a 50 year old picnic table/bench my Dad made and well, lots more. The photos attached were my brag pics, still can't believe I made it. My Dad who was a woodworker would have been very proud! Thanks Ryobi for the plans!
