    Refinished Missey's Potting Bench

    I just completed the refinish of Missey's Potting Bench. It was the first one I built (May 2011) and I was making it up as I went along.

    Very nice!

    I have a potting bench on my todo list for Mrs. Bubber. You have given me inspiration to get it done before spring.

    Many thanks

    I will inspire myself (not the same as copying ) to produce one for my sunroom!

    I must Say . . .

    I must say the Potting Bench has been more useful than we first thought it would. It's on our patio where we have our gas grill and large outdoor family table I built many years ago.

    Therefore, when we have a BBQ/family get together on the deck the Potting Bench becomes "food central", holding/displaying everything so everyone can help themselves.

    Moved Missey's Potting Bench back up to our deck a few minutes ago. It was time, it's spring and I needed the room.

    I used the 1026R with the bench strapped tight to Artillian forks for a safe move.
