Coffee Table Made Form a Single 2x4
Love it! Wish I could get my hands on real 2x4s! Great job!!
Thanx, I appreciate it.
Sooooooooo glad you posted a guide for cutting holes with a hole saw. I thought I was going to kill or seriously main myself while doing this. Now I can finish a project I've been putting off, instead of resorting to using my jigsaw - not my favorite option. I'm surprised when I Googled using a hole saw this didn't come up immediately. Thanx.
I like it! Though I don't have a pressure cooker. Do you think I could just use my canning pot to sterilize cans?
Thank you. And FYI, I washed it with baby shampoo to block it, and now it's super soft too.

Thank you very much. It's been working out well so far.
Thanx for your input. I wasn't planning on potting and re-potting in my greenhouse - first because it's small (6x8) and second because I didn't want a lot of cleanup - so I built a potting table to use outside the greenhouse. As for potting soil, I just tried a mix of peat moss and vermiculite I hope works for seed starting. When It comes time to repot, my soil is clay so I plan on mixing organic garden soil with topsoil and planting in raised beds.
It's not really complicated if you just take it step-by-step. The most difficult part for me was bending the hardware cloth and attaching it to the frame. The only staples I had on hand didn't always penetrate the wood and I had to hammer them in. I decided to attach narrow wood slats for two reasons - the main one was to help keep the hardware cloth attached to the shelf frame. Of course, I needed help getting the tables into my greenhouse because they are HEAVY!

SHELF TO GO
Skeeterpup,Thanx for your input and suggestions. I am planning to line my planters with landscape fabric instead of plastic, to eliminate soil contact with the wood, while preventing mold growth. I am planning on using 1/2" hardware cloth in the bottom of each planter to prevent burrowing animals tunneling up. As for screening against birds, I'm planning on building 1/2" mesh on hinging panels for ease of garden maintenance and harvesting. Supports I plan on using will be 36" dowels and teepees from 3/4"cedar slats. I plan to build shallower planters with 3/4" slats on back against my house - kind of a negative version of these planters.

Greenhouse Growing BenchView Instructable »
I just finished assembling a 6x8 greenhouse and found your post to be very helpful for me to use in "improving" on a fair design. The greenhouse I got isn't very airtight and definitely needs help. Thanx for this. I've been thinking about building a frame around my greenhouse just to protect it a bit from any strong winds that might come along. I didn't need to add height as I'm barely 5-feet tall and shrinking; but I love the look of the base and the planters.
Very nice job! I'm planning on a floating deck to cover most of my patio and extend into what's still lawn. This will definitely provide me some direction. Just curious why you didn't use concrete blocks intended to hold the joists in place rather than just place them on top of pavers.
Thanx for your explanation. I have to admit I didn't read your instructions completely. Unfortunately, I'll have to work hard to level my deck, my backyard slopes a bit. But if it turns out as nice as yours, I'll upload photos. :-)
