I made these new pot plant stands using Tasmanian Oak timber.
I have been wanting to make these stands for the last six months. After looking at different ideas online, I decided to go with this style.
All joints are glued. The legs are made using floating mortise joints. I used a horizontal home-made router table.
The top box section was made using a box joint jig. I also made the jig to do this process.
For the top part, where the pots sit, I glued three pieces of 110 x12mm Tasmanian Oak, recessed to give a shadow line and recessed to mount into the box section of the planter stand. The top base wasn't glued, it was just fitted into the slots and held together by just gluing the box joints.
Here are more photos of the work done to complete these planter stands. I only needed three of the stands. I started by making one as a prototype. This was my original and first try at making a planter stand.
So for the next three stands, I redesigned the top section with slots. No brackets required.
If you put your mind to make something, it's very rewarding when you see the finished product.
