well my old bench has been pretty much consumed by the termites over the last 15 years so it was time for a new one. the old one was redwood, this one is mahogany with an ipe construction is dominos and bisquits. in the center is a grate the i do the potting on. excess soil just falls into a plastic tray beneath. on the right side is a pull out soil bin. left side is a drawer for tools. shelves above will store small pots and fertilizers. large shelf below for bigger pots and extra bags of soil. size is 5' long 27" wide 37" tall. drawers are on glides. bench has flip down wheels for moving when needed with plastic buttons on the bottom of the legs. finish is penofin redwood oil to enhance the mahogany.
