As promised in part 1, here are two more shaker plant stands, these with shelves and inset apron (right term?). The original incarnation is shown at the left in the first picture. Left new stand is of white oak and the second pic shows the knot detail I included and filled with tinted epoxy. Repeated this with a sap pocket in the right new stand. The second is red oak.

Nice looking stands. Puting epoxy in the knott is a good idea.

Nice job. In Victorian England these were sometimes called ‘whatnots’.
