    scrap wood potters bench

    The wife has been wanting a bench to do her house plant potting on for ever. Well i been collecting the scraps of cedar, from the carnish on the house i've been building. Finilly figured i had enough to build it, so to make her happy i got my butt out in the shop and got er done. Nothin real fancy but she gave my a pic of one she liked and this is it.
