Project #4: Potting Bench

For the gardening enthusiasts, try your hand at building a handy portable potting bench to keep needed gardening supplies at their fingertips and provide a sturdy work surface.

The bench features a large (2′ x 4′) work area, tool tray, and underneath storage, with two wheels and handles to make it completely portable.

The work surface even has a removable panel in the top with a 5-gallon bucket underneath to hold potting soil or scraps.
