Since summer has now officially come and gone and I only started this site a week ago (give or take a day or two), I thought I would share an easy project that I did this summer from another old wooden palette. Originally I was going to turn it into a compost bin, but after using the palette laying on the ground for potting plants a new idea came to mind. I gathered some other scrap lumber and sanded them down real good. Then put them together to make a potting bench. After it was all pieced together I got a small can of cedar colored wood stain and stained the bench. It won't last forever but its a pretty good use of scrap wood.
Here are some views of the potting bench.
