Seed Bench

Another quick and dirty 'project'...and still distracted by the gardening bug.

We needed a small bench on which to germinate our seeds indoors and then later put outdoors as the weather warms up. I certainly wasn't going to pay the ridiculous garden center prices, especially on something that might exposed to the weather! 

So ...
An afternoon's work, a handful of basic tools, an old broken pallet and some pieces of recycled wood from the dump for the legs and a £1.35 bag of screws later...
Our 'new' seed propagation bench was born.
These are the tools used, a square, pencil, gimlet (i love gimlets), screwdriver, chisels and a small saw.

It's not built to last a lifetime and it's not pretty ... but, It's functional, almost free and it was a great way to spend an afternoon!
Broken and discarded pallets can be a readily available and free useful source of wood, so keep your eye out for them!

This woodworking book contains a great deal of details about wood working. The book also shows several designs and explanations on the materials useful for different woodworking processes and the directions on completing different processes properly. In other words, I`m happy using this book, specially in the procedure of understading about wood working.
