The Perfect DIY Potting Bench – Strong, Elegant And Easy To Make!

When it comes to creating a great space for potting your favorite flowers and plants, this attractive DIY potting bench is perfect for any gardener!

For starters, this potting bench is strong, durable and extremely functional. In fact, it’s part potting bench, craft table, work bench and storage shelf – all rolled into one!

But perhaps best of all, its simple 2x construction makes it inexpensive and extremely easy to build. Even for a novice woodworker!

The potting bench uses simple 2x construction for both it’s frame, work surface and shelves. At 5′ wide and 5′ tall, it is plenty big enough to work on, without taking up too much space.

Using just 2 x 4’s, 2 x 6’s and a single 2 x 8 x 8, it assembles together quick and easy.

The front legs are formed by screwing together (2) 2 x 4’s , while the back legs use (2) 2 x 6’s. It gives the bench a sturdy, solid framework that is wobble-free.

If desired, a set of casters can easily be added to the bottom to make it completely mobile.

The potting bench even features a cool built in, removable tub.

It is perfect for mixing up homemade potting soil. It’s also great for cleaning tools or a host of other chores.

The built-in tub is easily created with a commonly available $10 to $15 kitchen sink or busser tub.

It is held up by thick wooden dowels that remove the tub for easy cleaning.

This was my first real major wood working project, and it was super easy to follow! There were a few hiccups with the instructions, but could easily be addressed. I also cut the wood wrong the first time since I was following the cuts in order. Make sure to cut the longer pieces first! It’ll save you a trip to Home Depot! I also switched the tub out for a stainless steel sink and kitchen faucet. Perfect for an outdoor kitchen prep area!

Easy to follow plans. I made the bench and stained it for my daughter. Very sturdy construction, easy to build and required mostly straight cuts. Plans were clear and had plenty of pictures.

I have down loaded and printed these plans. They are complete, well laid out and easy to follow even if you are a novice. I haven't started the build yet as I am deciding on choice of wood for this bench, Cedar or Pressure Treated Pine are my finalists. After the build I will send pictures and any relevant comments. Great DYI project.

The directions are very easy to follow. Material list is right up front. The directions are also easy enough to modify the size of the potter’s bench. Thanks!
