My potting bench made out of wood pallets and 2x4's. On the bottom shelf is a wooden carrier used for hand tools or seeds when working in the yard & garden. The handle is made from a tree limb. Several little boxes from pallet wood were used for kitchen herbs. The names were put on the boxes using a wood burner. Being organized is my greatest ally. My potting bench is the Command Center for my garden. This is where I keep my magazines, seed catalogs and notebooks to plan my garden. This is also where I keep a box of tissues when I can't get ahead of the cutworms.

Way to go. Those pallets are awesome. You can always find free pallets behind chain stores that sell wood, tools, stone, etc.

Welcome to permies!!
