easy gardening project 


When building a potting bench there are several things to consider...

It should be simple and easy to build.

It should plenty of storage room for pots and tools.

A potting bench should be easy to move around if needed.

type of wood 

Pick a species for the potting bench that is weather resistant. Redwood is a perfect choice.


The work surface should be waist height and the width and depth can vary.

cutting and sanding

The cuts are simple and if you pick your boards carefully the redwood boards will already be pretty smooth.


Assembling your outdoor potting bench is easy using pocket hole joinery.

Top and bottom shelves

The top and bottom shelves have slats that you can either attach or leave loose for easy cleaning.

stain or paint

Stain or paint your potting bench in the color of your choice.

add accessories

I added hooks to the side to hang gardening tools.

Your modern outdoor potting bench is ready to use!
