I thought people might be interested in seeing a potting bench I made earlier this year. It is just made from treated sawn softwood and is not really what you would call quality woodworking, but it has proved very useful. It has wheels at one end so by lifting the other end it can be wheeled around.
The top is shown folded in the previous photo, but it can be unhinged and supported on the fold-out brackets.
The design is not perfect, and if I made another one there are two things I would change. One is the size of the wheels. The 4 inch diameter wheels on the present one are OK for wheeling around the patio but really need to be bigger for moving over the lawn (I would use 8 inch diameter next time). The second thing is that when the top is unfolded, the bench can tip over is there is not sufficient weight on the main bench to couterbalance the weight on the unfolded flap. The next time I would use fold-out legs rather than brackets so that the flap was supported.
You do have some clever design elements there. I loke the way you cut the top side boards to hold the top in place when closed.
tI agree with the larger wheels, for sure, but if you had a bag or two of soil, compost or other potting material on the bottom shelf and some pots or watering bucket and some hand tools there, too, it probably would have enough weight to stand even when fully open.. You could add swingaway legs at both sides instead of the triangle brackets at the top. That would allow a wide "footprint" to support the open benchtop, too.
