If not having yet, then simple pry the pallet skids to get a big bundle of individual straight wooden lengths! Composing a frame first with precisely and accordingly resized pallet slats, will be recommended here! After getting the right frame, one can fill it solid using extra wooden planks, these are basic steps to build this robust potting bench, provides also a lower shelf to store tools and stuff related to gardening!
Build first the work-surface of the potting bench, take a start by making a primary base frame including the legs and overall three dimensional sketch for all its parts and features!
Here the primary skeleton of potting bench has been made by framing up individual slats of pallets, resized according to precisely taken measurements! All planks have been nailed in place!
After a complete hand gritting, the frame has been given an Australian Timber Oil finish for glam light brown tone of wood and also for lasting weatherproofing to wooden surfaces!
Here a wooden board, made of an altered pallet board, have been installed instead of a wire mesh, you can go with your own preferences!
Strip down a bunch of pallets more to get a get big bundle of straight pallet slats you will be needed to fill solid the potting bench frame, here you can see that wooden oil treatment is being given to those separated pallets before getting into construction!
You can add 2 or more coats of wood oil to bring a graceful shine and brightness over the wood grains! These slats have been got here to put flat for work-surface and also for lower shelf of potting bench!
You can even use a piece of foam or cloth to apply the coats of Jarrah Brown Timber Oil, would let the wood withstand even harsh and extreme conditions of weather!
Insert the bottom shelf and here is how it will look like at the end, you can even add multiple shelves to top board to display the colorful pots of your garden!
