another suprise from dad

Just when you thought my dad couldn't get any cooler (remember it was his idea to upgrade my tv for Christmas?), he goes and puts his table saw to work making me a potting bench.


Now I really can't wait for spring! Thanks so much, Dad. You're the best.

How sweet Casey. That looks like a nice potting bench. Did he make his own design?

Okay, I got some more info from Dad. The plans came with a Kreg pocket hole kit (I had no idea what this was either and had to look it up! http://www.kregtool.com/Quick-Change-PocketHole-Kit-Prodview.html. Basically it's a hidden joinery system.) And here are plans, for anyone who's interested: https://www.kregtool.com/images/icons/potting_bench.pdf

What a thoughtful dad! I could totally use a potting bench - I usually leave all my pots strewn about and get soil everywhere. :)

What a dad! Your potting bench looks great! I wish mine lived closer... I cannot wait until they come down in March because he is going to help me with a couple of projects. If I gave him all the projects on my to do list they would never be able to go home! Hmmm... that just gave me an idea!
