How did you make your potting bench?

Trying to think of a way to make a potting bench from things on hand or easy to find, any ideas? What does your potting bench look like?

Here's a potting bench thread:

Just google potting bench plans and you will find lots of free plans for building one.

I should take a picture of mine sometime. It's very simple because there's a concrete retaining wall extending out from our basement door. The potting bench is just a simple flat surface cantilevered off the wall. But not applicable to everyone's situation... :)

I built this potting bench, plant bench down by my garden a few weeks ago. Built it mostly from scrap lumber. So far it has worked out great. It is about 3 feet by 10 feet.

Here is a photo of the plantbench/workbench today, as it appears when in use.
