A Potting Bench, Kitchen, Workbench, Standing Desk, Or…?

You know you’re a Burner when: your wife wants a potting bench for Mother’s Day, and after seeing the long parts lists of online DIY options you design one from exactly 2 sheets of plywood cut into 8 parts – then as you make it, you realize it will be a great playa kitchen! Or workbench. Or standing desk.

Whatever it is, we think it will make your day! And, like every design we share, building one for BRC leaves invisible extra parts inside you: Larry’s 10 Principles, that will always live on.

The Plitchenette offers a 60″ x 30″ work surface at convenient counter height, plus two lower shelves and an upper one. Also included in the plans is a suggested sink cut-out location, enabling you to add all the features of our iSink or Dish Delight designs to provide a fully-equipped camp kitchen – see those pages for links to water gear. Then, just add a camp stove on the counter, ice chest under its shade, and coffeemaker up top to become a playa master chef! We tried to make those from wood too, but not everything we try works.

For potting bench use, you can make the sink hole without installing a sink basin, place several open bins on the shelf below the counter, and slide any bin into place below the sink hole to collect soil, gravel, sand, or other materials spilled on the counter.

Whatever you do with it, please send a picture. Whoever sends a pic of the most ridiculous application will receive their choice of plans for any 3 designs you like. With thanks to Wristy for endlessly turning Sunshine’s chaotic graph paper sketches into plans you can use…and to Larry for turning us all into artists…
