My wife’s plants love these plant stands. I found the basic plans in Woodsmith. The joints are all loose tenons so the only tricky part was getting the angle correct on the rail tenons. The rest of the project was window dressing to bring out the Craftsman style. The original plans called for a tile on top but I chose walnut for the contrast. I also modified the heights so it took a bit of figuring to get all of the dimensions and scale to work out.

The main wood is cherry with walnut highlights, finished with 3 coats of polyurethane.

The stands are really nice. I bet she can buy plants faster than you can make the stands ;)

Very nice work! Are the legs tapered as well or is it just an optical illusion?

sdmref – the legs are not tapered, it makes an illusion that they are.

Very nice table. Is it possible for you to provide the link to the original Woodsmith pattern? I tried searching their site but had no luck finding it.

Have your say...
