We built a potting shed behind our garage years ago. One thing it lacked however, was a sink for watering newly potted and repotted plants, or washing off pots, rocks or hands.
I looked for a salvaged laundry sink, but had no luck. I looked for new laundry sinks, but they are mostly a thing of the past. In my search, I came across a deep fiberglass sink that had been returned and was marked down. I took a chance and bought it before I had an idea of how to use it.
The sink needed a counter for support, an area to put materials while working in the sink, a water supply and a drain. There was a hose in the shed, so water was no problem. Since the only thing that would be in the sink was plants and soil (no chemicals or detergents), it could just drain onto the ground.
I designed a table with a large opening for the sink. There is a work area to the left, and a storage shelf below. The table stands on a fan shaped area of brick, so I curved the table edge to follow the brick. Materials are 2x and 4x redwood.
NOTE: There is a black plastic flat (tray) across the top of the sink in these photos. Lisa uses it when she works on small plants in the sink.
