My present to my wife this year for her birthday was to build her an outdoor sink – a place where she can clean off her garden tools and wash vegetables before bringing them into the house. We had an old washtub that we weren’t using and a bunch of cedar left over from our new deck so I took inspiration from this blog post over at Bonnie Plants. Mine doesn’t look much like theirs, but I really liked the rustic appearance. Because mine is tucked under an existing deck, I wanted to use the back side for storage. That, coupled with the fact that the ground underneath is not level, added some engineering challenges to the build, but I’m happy with the results. More importantly, my wife likes it too. I’ll add some more photos when the plumbing is complete.
