Potting Bench with Sink Plans

Julian 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy woodworking project is about a potting bench with sink plans. I have designed this potting bench with a sink so you can take care of the small plants in a stylish manner. The potting bench features shelves for the supplies a water faucet and a sink, so you have a water supply when taking care of the plants. Take a look over the rest of our woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a potting bench with sink

Building the bottom frame

Building the bottom frame

The first step of the project is to build bottom frame of the potting bench. Cut the components at the right dimensions from 2×4 lumber, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the 48″ long components and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular supports. Align the edges flush and make sure the corners are square.

Building the top frame for the potting bench is a straight forward process, but you need to pay attention to the opening for the sink. Cut the components at the right dimensions and then lock them together tightly. You need to adjust the size of the sink opening, according to the item you are going to purchase. This frame is made for a sink that I link to in the materials list.

Fit the 2×4 legs to the frames of the potting bench. Drill pilot holes through through the legs and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the frames. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.

Next, fit the 1×6 slats around the top back wall. Use 1 1/4″ screws to secure the slats into place tightly, after drilling pilot holes.

Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the edges with sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain over the components, so you can enhance the look of the potting bench and to protect the components from decay.

You need to take a look over PART 2 of the project, where I show you how to attach the shelves and the exterior walls to the potting bench. This potting bench has a distinctive look and it will help you in your garden.
