    That's some impressive woodworking. Wish I had the skill.My plants could use some better outdoor quarters, not to mention something better for my bonsai to sit on other than upturned plastic buckets!

    Hi Jeff!
    Your bench looks great....very good work! Your orchids are beautiful....so healthy and pretty blooms, but with your growing skills, I wouldn't expect anything less! Also, I always enjoy reading your posts...the advice you give is right on the money...always very helpful! By the way, I *think* that you and I have the same, if not similar, orchid. It is the first one on your top bench....mine is Blc. Machiko Ogawa 'Volcano Queen'. Same? Anyway, I love it.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Vicki

    What a beautiful display, Jeff! It looks as if you're awash in blooms. The bench is very handsome - is it teak? Do you plan to use it as a working/growing bench, or just for displays? I'm VERY impressed.

    Vicki, you're right they do look similar but mine is Lc. Drumbeat 'Heritage'. It's one of my favorite large catts. Thank you for your kind comments.

    I wish I had thought of using teak. It's actually fir that I stained. I use the bench mostly for display. I have wire racks that I use for growing because they allow more airflow around the plants. Thank you for the compliments.
