Planting Bench

Just in time for Christmas for my mother-in-law from the kids. I made this planting bench with covered recessed potting soil bin. Made from 100% recycled oak and pine pallet wood. Hand planed wood to give hand hewn rustic look. Sealed with 3 coats of Thompsons sealer. Posted on my facebook page Christmas day and received 3 orders with a couple additional options.

Woods: oak pine

Tools: chisels clamps sliding compound saw hand planes

Thank you. She is already starting to use it. We temporarily moved it into the garage. I designed it as I built it. Not the standard practice for me but it worked out this time.
Here are the dimensions: 65" W x 30" D x 66" H. Work surface is 32" H. Potting soil bin is 16" W x 24" D
