  1. Limbert 244 plant stand

    Hey gang, I have one plant, a rubber plant (or maybe a jade plant, I guess I should go over to garden tenders and ask) that I've raised from a broken branch. The great thing about this plant is even with my brown thumb I can not water it for 4~6 months, give it a drink, and it's fine. Just the...
  2. Stickley style oak plant stand

    The December 2015 Issue of Woodworker's Journal magazine has a neat looking Stickley style oak plant stand. I decided to build 3 of these as Christmas 2016 gifts to family members. The 2 shelves are loose floor ceramic tiles, 12×12" nominal dimension. I guess if the plants leak water when you...
  3. Plant Stand

    My wife wanted a new plant stand for our new sun room ( converted hot tub room) and I had made some before using oak and with straight legs. They were quick to make but when the tops got wet the oak turned black. So this gave me a chance to try out some concepts I had not used before. I wanted...

  5. Side Table or Plant Stand

    This project was made with two 2×4s and two solid wood round discs. Although it's hard to see in the photos, the pillar has a unique shape due to the v-notched 2×4s. This design is very sturdy and should hold about anything you would like to place on it. Build Instructions...

  7. Craftsman Plant Stands

    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...

    I made this stand after seeing the one made by schloemoe posted here a little while ago: I also found that I had issue 177 of Wood Magazine, July 2007. The legs are made of some old reclaimed 2×4s. All other parts are made from reclaimed Pine T&G...
  10. A tale of two plant stands. Now there are four.

    Just before Easter my pastor mentioned that he could use two more plant stands to match the pair that sit behind the altar. The originals are a Mutt and Jeff, one is taller than the other. I took careful measurements of the originals and examined how they were put together. After a while I...

    Made this plant stand or small bench from Oak. I used plans from here then shortened it and removed the cross pieces. There are two coats of Minwax Espresso with Poly.
  12. Adjustable Plant Stand

    This plant stand is constructed of red oak. I saw a similar stand at a friends house and decided to make a couple. I cut the notches via bandsaw as well as the ratchet piece and the stabilizing piece on the bottom. There is a dowel which allows the ratchet to swing. There is no hardware in...

    This is a stand (phone stand, side table, plant stand, anything stand…) I made for my sister for Christmas because she liked the one I made for my mother so much. Its made from Poplar and the legs are made from some wood that I recycled from an old piano. The legs have a slight curve on the...

    I recently bought two small sticks of this beautiful Central American wood locally. They were both coated in wax when I got them. I thought that was a bit strange, so I asked the salesman why. He said the wood will get darker when exposed to the air. Does anyone know how long this darkening...

    I am working on making a lamp for Gracie Barra. The shade will be stained glass. The base will be turned. I am not sure what type of wood the base will be. The reason for this post is to offer a "how to" blog on stained glass. If there is enough interest I will write a blog on how to cut...
  20. Wood & Lumber
    A fiend in the area dropped by this morning and left this piece of wood. He called it Tiger wood, but to me it looks like it might be Zebra. It is a nice piece 20 inches long x 5 inches wide x 1 inch thick. Very heavy and hard.
