    Hey Jeff. They are absolutely right: first class work on the plants AND the bench- very neat woodwork that is JUST SO! I am with you- so often I feel I have to do it myself because I want it exactly a certain way and with bought stuff you are always having to compromise (unless one has the means to have it all made bespoke.) I definitely need to make fitted benching for my conservatory; my trellises are successful, but the window shelves are a bit narrow for the plants kept there. You have inspired me to get out my tools again. Thanks! Again- lovely job.

    Thank you. It's 31" tall, only because the aluminum rail for my screened porch is that height and I wanted to match it. It's 48" long. The top shelf is 12" deep and the bottom shelf is 24" deep.

    Are there humidity trays under your slatted shelves? I LOVE this bench- just beautiful.

    No I didn't put any humidity trays in because it's very humid here in South Florida. It would be easy to include humidity trays though. I've seen orchid benches that are built just the right size to slide humidity trays into.
