We used a combination of cedar and composite decking to keep the bench looking great from year to year. For the hardware, we used galvanized stainless-steel fasteners. With these weather-resistant materials, there’s no need
to apply a finish. Over time, the bench will develop a
beautiful silver-gray color that complements the garden.This woodworking plan appeared in Workbench magazine No. 283

Any gardener will tell you that a good potting bench is essential to keeping a garden looking its best. Usually however, it’s a strictly utilitarian item that gets stuck in an old shed somewhere. That certainly won’t happen to this potting bench. with its gracefully curved side and back panels, it has a rustic charm that’s reminiscent of a country cottage, making it an extremely attractive fixture in the garden. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about rain, snow, and sun damaging the bench. Like a perennial plant, it will withstand the weather and continue to look great from year to year. The key to this longevity is the weather-resistant materials used in constructing the bench.
