The Cottage Gardener

I built this Potting bench for one of my clients. He wanted a bench that would last for years and that would have options to afford the opportunity to work in one place with everything at her finger tips. I added side splashes to keep items on the table. I added a dry sink for soil, as well as the option for a clear sink top for incubation. Most Benches today are flimsy. I used Heavy 2×8 syp prime for the top. This wood was treated by me with a 5 year protectant and not chemical ridden treated lumber! I added tons of options. I would love the groups input. The Photo shoot is in my clients yard here in Charleston, SC.
