  1. Gustav Stickley Inspired Plant Stand

    This is my first attempt at anything "furniture grade," and it was accomplished solely with hand tools. The general plans came from a recent issue of WoodWorking magazine, although they were altered during the process due to dumb mistakes and the efforts to correct them. I've started a new one...
  2. Plant Stand

    One of those fun projects that originates from figuring out what to do with your scraps of wood that aren't long enough to make what you want. Woods are Red Oak, Maple and Purpleheart and the bottom joint is my first half lap. The top is held to the base with dowels. It now rests comfortably...
  3. Cedar Storage Cabinet - A Sad Story

    This cabinet was to serve as a companion to the Cedar Plant Stand I posted some time ago. It is designed to conceal bags of planting soil underneath and provide an additional shelf for potted plants on top. With the exception of the knobs, it is made from 100% untreated cedar. I used brass...
  4. Misc. Uniques

    Just a few assorted fun objects. Brazilian Cherry and Ebony mirror and a Lacewood mirror. White Oak with Ebony accents craftsman mailbox. Teak plant stand. Brazilian Cherry clocks with Ebony feet. And a Hickory cheese cutting block 5 1/4"square by 51/2' tall, heavy.
  5. Cherry Display Table

    Built this item about a month ago. I had some left over cherry, and it took me about 2 hours to figure out what to do with it. I saw a bench on lumber jocks and thought - yep- but mines a display table instead. I used kreg pocket screws to join the wood. Took about 3 hours to build, nice...
  6. Plant Stand

    I made this plant stand out of pine and stained it with Minwax Cherry stain. This was my one and only attempt up to this point for mounting a tile into a solid table top. Also my first shot at the taper jig. I used pocket hole joinery for a speedy assembly.
  7. Cedar Plant Stand

    A customer wanted a plant stand to grow various potted herbs on an outdoor balcony. I designed this plant stand using Google Sketchup. The stand utilizes a slat design to keep water from pooling on the surface. I used unfinished cedar purchased at Home Depot for it's resistance to rotting and...
  8. plant stand from fenceboards

    One of our early projects, all we had was a jigsaw, drill, and mitersaw at the time. The wife wanted a plant stand. We cut the top pieces with a jigsaw from cedar fence boards, stained them and glued it all to a scrap of plywood. The edges were made by glueing some left over quarter round...
  9. Christmas Prototype

    Well Christmas is a commin' and I'm already stressed. But, I must press on and this year I'm thinking the folks at work will get this plant stand. This is the prototype, a practice piece that was claimed by the Mrs. (She generally grabs thems when they meet her needs) The upright and feet are...
  10. No power tools but sorry, painted white.

    First of all I just want to say that I typically never paint wood but with this learning project, it's roughness, and where it was going to fit in the house it was best. Last year I found 1.5×1.5×32 poplar for $2 each at a Big Box store and picked a few up. I figured these would be good stock...
  11. Cherry Plant Stand

    I made this plant stand for my wife out of two five foot 10/4 Cherry planks that I found under an old barn on her parents farm. The entire plank was curly stress wood. The first time I cut it, it bent like a banana. It took a while to mill the components. I had to cut everything way oversized...

    Build Instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Garden-Plant-Stand/ The plant stand shown grows edibles in a compact vertical space. We use the planter to grow herbs and edibles on the deck close at hand to the kitchen and the grill. In the containers we have mint, pineapple sage, marjoram...
  13. Plant stand!

    Standing in my fathers garage he says "time to throw that ladder away", I look and say are you serious, as I had this random idea! Now I have a new plant stand! No idea how I was going to do this, I just grabbed a saw and cut…now I'm thinking maybe I should have thought about where I just made...
  14. Stickley Inspired Plant Stand

    This plant stand is based on one of Gustav Stickley's models featured in Robert Lang's book Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture. I departed from the Stickley design by rotating the lower stretcher, and making it a bit wider to use as a shelf. Rather than a pegged tenon, the shelf's stub...
  15. Pedestals

    These are some of my early pieces. I wanted plant stands, so I designed two versions to see which we liked the best. The version with walnut uses floating through tenons that are attached to hidden center stretchers with dowels that are not glued into the stretchers, so the tenons can slide back...
  16. Arts and Crafts Plantstand

    A friend of mine recently had to put down her cat due to illness, so she bought a plant to remember the cat by. One day she was flipping through my copy of David Thiel's Arts and Crafts Furniture Anyone Can Make and saw the plant stand featured in the book. She immediately asked me if I could...
  17. First Post

    I'm new here and this is my first post attempt….. So let me know if I'm doing something wrong. This is just a simple plant stand for my wife. It's just stock pine with a few box joints and a poly finish. I've seen these in magazines and figured it would be pretty easy to build. This actually...
  18. Quick Plant Stand

    One of my sisters requested a plant stand to put in her kitchen so the plants wouldn't freeze. She found a picture of this one online. It is made from Beech. It stands three feet tall. The nine discs are 7 1/4 diameter. The distance across the bottom is about three feet, so it isn't tippy at...
  19. Plant Stand

    I build this plant stand using red oak to replace a filmsy metal one. I came up with the design myself based off the way I imagined it in my head. It has a small drawer at the top on full extension drawer slides and a sturdy shelf on the bottom. To add a little eye appeal, I routed the top edges...
  20. Curved Plant Stand

    This is a plant stand made from 2×8 construction grade material. It is a bent lamination that is stained a cedar color.
