When we moved to our retirement home, we brought several plants from our house in Virginia. With all the activity of moving, we grabbed a Wally World plastic shelving unit and used it as a plant stand. Well a new plant stand had been on my list of things to build, but somehow between building new kitchen cabinets and several other projects over the last several months, the plant stand kind of slid to the bottom of the to do list. A couple days before Christmas, I picked up a Christmas cactus for my wife. After handing it to her, she reminded me that there wasn’t enough room on the plant stand and that I needed to push the new plant stand higher on the to do list. I been having so much fun with building things using raised panels, I though what the hey, lets build a plant stand with attitude. So I grabbed some hickory and walnut and the rest is now history. Retirement still rocks!!
