In the current times, most of my usual musical activities have been cancelled, so I find myself with time on my hands - more time to spend in the workshop.

My wife enjoys gardening, but she has back problems from time to time, so we agreed on an "outdoor workbench" that she use for re-potting, etc. while standing up. We visualised the design in Sketchup:

then I ordered 4 x 3.6 metre gravel boards from an online supplier of fence materials and knocked-up this:

Staying with garden projects, we decided that we needed some planters to go in a couple of bays in the pergola. Using decking boards (again ordered online due to lockdown restrictions) I knocked these up - each planter is 1100mm x 450mm x 300mm:
