Spring Potting Bench

Last summer we picked up some used greenhouse tables for the greenhouse on Craig's List.  They were 10 dollars each not bad for something that goes for $45-65 new.  We also needed a workbench to work at for cuttings and re-potting plants.  So I went out to the scrap wood pile(there always seems to be a scrap pile on a farm) and built a great work bench using for a top one of the greenhouse tables which is a molded high impact plastic.  It's great no rot, no mess and at 8 foot long it gives a lot of work area.  It is great even for two people to work at but more than that and forget about it.  So over this spring break I made a 2nd one for the greenhouse. Just the right height for us and a small edge across the back to keep trays and top from slipping off. I find it so convenient and it pleased me that it was so practical using recycled products.
