Hey @cadsman , very neat, and efficient use of space.

 

I might have to try something like that myself for my kids, all of whom have smaller backyards.

Re: pot plant stand for new garden at son number 3's house

Hi @cadsman,

 

That's a unique design for retaining pots you've built there. Did you come up with that hook system yourself as I'm very impressed with it? Do you think something similar could be utilised on a wall? I'm surprised I haven't seen a manufactured product with a similar pot retaining method like this, you would think they could be pressed out of metal for a fairly low cost.

 

Are there any details on construction that you could share with us?

 

Many thanks for sharing such an interesting project and we very much look forward to seeing what you are working on next.

 

Mitchell

pot stand views.jpg    I saw the timber hook idea for pots on a TV show, cant remember which one, ( a female presenter was using a jigsaw!!) but I re-designed the stand to take a 200mm pot as a minimum. I also put aluminium angles on all horizontal exposed timber edges for longevity.

    It could be used for wall mounting if designed correctly and I reckon that someone will make a metal frame one day and make a squillion dollars from it. But, it won't be me!!     Anyway, here are the details I used and developed.

Cheers, IanK  .cadsman.

Hi IanK (@cadsman), 

 

Many thanks for the additional information and the detailed plans. I trust our members will find them extremely useful if they decide to make a similar plant stand themselves.
