To keep from getting up and down so many times when planting my raised beds, I decided to build a moveable shelf to hold my plants. :roll: I have to finish the shelf with raised sides to keep from knocking plants off yet. The widget was made from 99% recycled material. :wink: I will post a better description of building and using it in my journal a little later on. :lol:

Can the shelf hold much weight?

Hi bogy, the shelf is big enough to hold sixteen 4”sq pots. And with the arm extended to one side I pushed down harder than the wet pots would weigh and the clamp did not move. :D I do not think I would try to sit on it though. :wink:
