Potting Bench
Redwood, cedar, and etched tiles add to the country look.

SHOP OWNER: Richard Furnas

    When looking through plans, I could not find a potting bench with enough flair so I decided to design one myself. The breadboard top sporting a draw bore tenon joint and the lower slotted shelf, which is set in a rabbit, are redwood.

    The stiles are reworked pieces of a pressure treated beam I had and the rails on the main part of the bench are cedar. The joints are pinned-through tenons with haunched mortises. To give the bench a country look, I decided to use a couple of etched tiles on the back.
