Potting Table

My wife wanted a potting bench so she wouldn't have to bend over/kneel every time she wanted to work with plants. She saw a picture on pinterest of one made out of pallet wood and asked for one for herself. Several free pallets, a few 2x4s, and a set of Ryobi power tools got the job done

Measurements can vary based on how long you want it to be. For my wife I made it approximately 4ft long, and the height to the top of the table is 43". The front legs are the frames of the broken down pallets, while the legs in the backs are cut 2x4s (cut to desired height of back wall/top shelf). The frame for the bottom shelf and table top are the frames of the pallets as well. Cut to the desired depth/height of table. The top of the table runs left to right so you'll need to find larger pallets (I was lucky a local company gets them in every so often). Otherwise the top of your table should run front to back like I did on the bottom shelf. The slabs on the bottom shelf, the table top, and the back wall are all pallet wood pieces.
