12 year update on my benches, fwiw.

It became necessary to replace about 25% of the frame and all the planks due to rotting. I decided to go with a composite material this time instead of decking wood. Remarkably this was cheaper than the equivalent wood.

Due to the difference in structural rigidity once the planks were removed I had to add cross-beam support when I realised the benches were now leaning. The old planks were screwed directly into the frame but these new composite planks are loosely attached using plastic clips.

I also built some "holding pens" instead of growing beds...see the last photo.

Nice. I like both the bench setup and the holding pen. I made custom flats to hold 24 4" square pots or the 4x6" or 6x8" boxes I make for growing on small material.
