DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
The Eli's Potting Bench is available in 3 standard sizes: 42" W, 48" W and 60"W. In all sizes, the standard depth is 21" deep and the height is 65 ½" if ordered with 2 shelves and 55" if ordered with one shelf.
The work area is a butcherblock construction tabletop.
Standard features: 2 large drawers under the tabletop, each measuring 15 ½" W x 18 ½" D x 5 ¾ H.
Shelving: All Eli's Potting bench shelves are extra strong and are built with 1 7/8" thick boards to hold up fine under the heaviest loads.
There is one large shelf underneath the tabletop work area that is 21" deep and runs the entire width of the potting bench. It is usually set at 4 5/8" H off the ground without casters and 10 ½" H if you choose to add casters to your Potting Bench.
You also have the option of either one or two shelves above the tabletop work area. If you choose 2 shelves, the two top shelves are set at 50 ½" and 61 ½"H and are 10"D and you have 12 ¼" of clearance between the tabletop and the bottom of the first shelf. If you choose one shelf, it is at 51 1/8" H and you have 13 ¼" of clearance between the tabletop and the bottom of the shelf.
The tabletop work area is 36"H. If casters are added, we shorten the legs to maintain the 36" tabletop height.
Any measurements (such as the work area height or shelving height) can be adjusted; just let us know what you'd like.
If you choose the fold down sides option, each side adds an additional 18" W x 21" D to the tabletop area.

Assembly Instructions for: Eli’s Redwood Potting Bench
All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
