Chicweed owner Susie Teisl came up with the idea and asked local woodworker Jon Hawley if he could build them. He could — and so can you. Hawley starts with two pallets that initially held boxes of tile because tile box pallets provide the longest and strongest lumber. Teisl says the potting bench’s 37-inch-high work surface is perfect for potting plants. Once you’ve assembled the bench, you can attach salvaged or inexpensive hardware along the countertop edge to hold gardening tools, or screw casters to the leg bottoms to make the bench more mobile. You might even cut a hole and drop in a plastic or metal pan for holding potting soil or seed-starting mix. You can paint the wooden surfaces lively colors or stain them.

If there isn’t space for a fully functional garden shed or at least for a small one you might need a potting bench. It’s a very handy piece of outdoor furniture that will help you pot your plants and organize garden tools. You can place such table anywhere: on a deck, on a porch, in the middle of the garden, in a garage and so on. Depending on available space and your needs you can choose the gardening bench in any size, with built-in sink or not, with one or with many shelves. There are even DIY plans available so you can build a perfect potting bench by yourself. Btw, if you have a garden shed it definitely would be better if there is one of those benches inside.outdoor potting table 6Well, this potting table fixes that problem.

So by the looks of it, it should be super simple to put together. You’ll have your own potting space in no time.outdoor potting table 11A.I'm sure it probably will fit a large potting mix bags. I love my Pottiing Bench, I did put a Danish oil on it for water protection, it's on a covered patio.outdoor potting table 12I purchased the potting bench as a gift for my Mom. I was very impressed with the quality of wood, overall appearance and ease of assembly. It surpassed my expectations and my Mom loves it. The only “flaw” I discovered after assembling it was that there's nothing to prevent dirt and debris from falling through the spaces between the planks of wood and into the drawer (a couple pieces of newspaper on the work surface will take care of that issue). It isn't a big deal and it isn't enough to warrant returning it because we love everything else about the bench; the height and overall size, the appearance and design and value for the quality of the product. Worth every penny.outdoor potting table 13Nothing is worse than going to plant flowers, and you can’t find your gloves or tools. Well, you don’t have to worry about that too much if you have this potting bench as there is ample room for storage and planting.outdoor potting table 14A new line of potting benches at Chicweed, a garden accessories and design boutique in Solana Beach, California, is made from wooden pallets; only the screws are new.

Drive screws into the back legs, the countertop, and the back skirt. Drill in the back-skirt screws from the outside. These blocks will prevent side-to-side motion of the potting bench.outdoor potting table 18Step 2: Make the Boards Uniform Using a straightedge, pencil, and miter or circular saw, mark and trim away splintered wood and square the edges of the boards — “unless you want to keep the nail holes,” Hawley says. “Some people think they look unique.” He suggests cutting off knotholes and other weak parts of the boards for a stronger potting bench.outdoor potting table 19To create supports for the bottom shelf, about 7 inches above the base attach two 1x pieces to the front and back legs on each side. Potting Bench Tip: To ensure consistent shelf height, you can install temporary spacers (the longer pieces parallel to and touching the ground) and measure the distance between the tops of the spacers and the tops of the shelf-support pieces.outdoor potting table 20Step 12: Install Bracing Blocks Position the bracing blocks on the insides of the back legs. Drive screws into the back legs, the countertop, and the back skirt. Drill in the back-skirt screws from the outside.

You now have an attractive, creative potting bench for all your gardening needs.outdoor potting table 22Use the pallet base or 2×4 lumber for the legs. Because most pallets have three 2×4 pieces, you need to break down a second pallet or join two pallet pieces with screws to make a fourth leg. To get the hutch top above the countertop height, notch with the table saw 8 inches out of each of the two 2×4 pieces (for the back legs), and add another notched piece for the desired height of 60 inches. “Sister” these two notched pieces with screws, and glue, if you wish. These pieces can come from the other pallet’s 2×4 base pieces or from 1x material cut to match the width of the leg pieces. After you’ve notched out all four of the back legs and extension pieces, connect them with screws.
