Greetings again Jmock,
The author, Lucy Mercer, quickly responded: she asked me to let you know the final stages of editing are being made at this very time, and there will be a PDF and a cut list for the potting bench, on the site, by weeks end.
I must say that you are a great husband to build this wonderful potting bench for your wife (even if it was an order), it will be the perfect spot for her to work on her plants and create beautiful planters.
Check the Home Depot Garden Club site on Friday for the full instructions! I would love to see some photos of your finished project.
Best of luck, and happy building! Maureen
Hello there Jmock and James9999,
James9999 looking at the 3d images included in the PDF the double offset for the picture in STEP 3 is not needed. Frames TOP A and C are identical. The 4x4 front legs were a styling choice, plus looks like they leave a cool recess in which to hang some smaller tools. Likely it was done to minimize knocking into possibly dirty or sharp equipment while still keeping it close to hand. I can imagine driving in some long nails and storing spools of twine in stuff in there.
Jmock did the PDF help clear things up? If not let me know here and we'll work through it together. I hope this helps and can't wait to see what you all create.
I am so sorry for your frustration. I have found that going right to the main page for the potting bench and clicking on the orange lettering that states: Download, the drawing, instructions and cut list. That will bring you straight to the pdf, and you can get going on the building of the Ultimate Potting Bench!
Good luck, I would so love to see a picture of your finished bench, and thank you so much for helping us iron out all the snags in our sites instructions. You have helped so many, so much!
Thanks once more, Maureen
*NOTE: All of the orange highlighted text in above email will get you to the instructions too! Happy Building!!
