As of 2014, the Today’s Plans website has links to 15 different potting bench plans from multiple online sources that are available to gardeners at no cost. There are a variety of do-it-yourself plans that include materials lists and step-by-step instructions with illustrations to suit a range of skill levels.
Today's Plans features a very simple potting bench that can be made from recycled wooden pallets as well as a more complex portable garden work table on wheels. The site also lists several styles that include storage bins and shelves. Potting benches make garden tasks easier, because working while seated means there is less strain on a gardener's back.
