The project  

 

I couldn’t find a plant stand that was the height or look I wanted so it was Bunnings to the rescue again!

I cut the timber myself after I got a great deal at Bunnings on a cheap mitre saw. You can also get Bunnings to cut the timber to size. I measured my width based on my pot plant size and used premium pine to keep the cost down.

I realised half-way through that the tall stand would need a secondary support at the bottom, so I ended up doing a cross-lap joint on both.

It's actually a really easy first D.I.Y. project and you don't need any fancy electric tools. The only thing you really need is a hacksaw and chisel to do the cross-lap joint. If you don't mind using just nails rather than dowels for putting it together, it's super easy!
