This project was to add a little dimension to our landscape.

It was made from 1 X 10 cedar rough one side. I used Gorilla glue and #8 X 2” FH screws. I separated the columns with a piece of 3/4: scrap. The cart sides I added later and is shown on cart for the un-weathered planter that I gave to my daughter and her husband. The cart uses those useless plastic casters (but they were free).

The first quadrant is 12” in height with the remaining quadrants 8” incrementally higher.

I’m particularly proud of the shelves though they are delicate (I have had to re-glue a slat her and there several times). The shelves overhang the pedestals by 1/4”. the The shelving strips are 1-3/4 wide and run diagonally. These strips are glued to two 3/4 X 3/4 strips running transverse. These strips also perform the registration of the shelves since the shelves lift out (I didn’t want screw heads detracting from the shelves rustic appearance. The subsequent triangular corner pieces are extremely delicate with only one 3/4 X 1 inch butt joint. I guess I’ll add #6 screws to reinforce all of the joints using 2 screws at each joint to eliminate the possibility of racking.

I used CadKey to design this is in 3D.

Those are pretty cool. I like the skirt you put on the fresh ones to hide the bottom platform. Looks nice!
