New sifting table

It’s STILL snowing. 5″ in April added to the countless inches we’ve already gotten is pure torture. But as they say the show must go on. In a way it has been kind of nice getting some extra time in the shop to put together some projects I have been kicking around. This one has been rolling around in my head for the longest: a sifting table. Each week I sift a bag of a peat moss mix that I use to plant our micro-greens in. In the past I have used just a simple framed screen that I laid over the tote and would dump small amounts at a time on the screen as to not spill any:

The first rendition of the plan was just a table to set the tote on, making it at least more ergonomic. But low and behold the things you find when you purchase a new property:  a perfect piece of grated metal. It took me a few days to work through just the the best way to incorporate it. But I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The result is a near perfect table for sifting and planting trays and pots with out ANY worry of spilling excess soil:
