Build a Garden Potting Bench - Woodworking with FREE Pallets - Machine industry and woodworking


This Garden Potting Bench is easy to make for FREE using two recycled pallets, a hammer, crowbar, jigsaw, drill, screws and nails. To save time and effort, cut one of the pallets in half and use the two halves for the work surface and lower shelf. Dismantle the second pallet carefully with a crowbar and hammer trying not to split the boards. Used those boards for legs, cross-bracing, and a back for hanging gardening tools.

Note: Check the craigslist Free section for pallets. Inspect pallets for evidence of insects. Pallets may contain wood-boring pests, so do not store pallets next to your good lumber or inside your house.
