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.

You can purchase super-strong casters to add mobility to your box. Casters are rated to handle 320 pounds each and they lock in place! An installed set of 4 Casters is $79. They are available in Advanced Options. (Benches 96" and longer require a set of 6 casters to accommodate the extra weight.) The casters are 4 1/4" tall. But, we also add a 1 3/4" thick extra support base for them. So, the total height of the box is increased by 6". When ordering casters, your box will be built with the "no stands or feet" option like in the photos above. The casters are installed near the 4 corners.
We are often asked if we can partially hide the casters. We can add a 2 1/2" tall trim to cover approximately half the caster height. (Any more than that makes it difficult to lock and unlock the casters). If you choose to add casters, you can also choose to add this trim for a small extra charge
SINGLE OR DOUBLE SHELF OPTION
To save a few dollars, you can purchase Elis Potting Bench with 1 shelf instead of 2. Simply select this option in Advanced Options.
|Eli's Potting Bench (Options: Redwood, No Casters, 1 Shelf, No Copper Inset, No Engraving, No Removable Lid, Transparent Premium Sealant)||Eli's Potting Bench (Options: Redwood with Casters, 2 Shelf, Copper Inset)|
If you'd like a copper inset in one or both of your drawers, we are glad to offer this optional add-on. It's not necessary for the integrity of the drawers the redwood will probably outlast the copper. But, it's a nice touch and we've had requests for this in the past, so we now offer it in Advanced Options.

Photo shows tabletop lid installed. The Insert is a popular option for a drawer that will hold soil regularly. The Lid allows you to easily access soil or push soil from the tabletop back into the drawer
A removable lid can be added on the tabletop over the drawers. This allows you to scoop soil up from or dump soil into the drawer below in one movement. You can add a removable lid to the left, right, or both drawers. The lid can be placed either with the lift to open/close either toward the front or back of the potting bench. The lid is reversible.

Would you like to add a personal engraved message to your furniture?
Select "Custom Engraving" under Advanced Options. The engraving size we normally use translates to about 14 characters per foot. The default color for lettering is black. If you prefer a different color, let us know. There will be a small charge for changing the font color.
We will center the engraving on the top board of the backrest or the front of the seat trim of a backless bench unless you specify elsewhere. Please let us know your instructions on placement and line break(s) – if not specified, they will be placed at the shop's discretion.
If you'd like a particular font style, please send a Word or PDF document with the font, spacing, and the exact wording and punctuation you’d like. We will trace your document directly onto the wood. Send it to [email protected].
If you are undecided on your engraving message, and would prefer to send it after you place your order, just let us know in the comment box so we know to expect it later. Due to limitations of the engraving tool (we cut ¼” wide and ¼” deep into the wood), we may not be able do certain fonts and will let you know if there is an issue.

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 doesnt hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you dont 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 youd like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish
