« Part 1: Dressers Part 2 of Free Wood series Part 3: This Wood Won't Smell »

Coming home from Church on Sunday I passed this plant stand, out for the trash, not far from my house. Needless to say I walked out and took a look. It is made of solid, 1 inch by 1 1/2 inch oak. It came apart into 2 frame pieces by removing 4 screws on the bottom. Some flexing broke the doweled joints. This is what I got. The long bits have a useful 22 inches of solid oak between the dowel holes.

Are you going to repair it, or use the wood for another project?

I’ll use it for something else. I don’t know what, but eventually something will come to me.

Nice find – can’t ever have too much wood waiting around for a project.
