Potting Table

Potting TableHello All,
My wife is an avid gardener and put in her request for a potting table, so of course I built one for her. It's made of redwood, which is the go to lumber in California for outdoor projects. The problem can be finding decent quality without paying steep prices for clear heart lumber. The big box stores carry a lot of redwood, but it's usually low quality construction grade, often still wet. After searching many sources, I have found good quality and value at Lowes. They sell kiln dried redwood, and if you purchase 2×6 stock, it's almost always much better quality than 2×4's.Joints were assembled with the Dowelmax and Tightbond 3, my usual method for strong, accurate joinery. Rubber feet were added to keep moisture from wicking up though the legs. I have decided not to finish this table, and let it acquire the soft gray patina of weathered redwood. This table will get a lot of abuse from dirt, water, and the elements, so any finish would have to be renewed often. Thanks for looking!
