D.I.Y. plant stand

So I couldn’t find a plant stand that was the height or look I wanted so Bunnings to the rescue again! I did realise halfway for a stand this height I needed a secondary support at the bottom so ended up doing a cross lap joint on both. Still need to decide on a colour, should I varnish it walnut or paint it white? :smile: Plant was also from Bunnings. 

 

 

Community manager's note: Inspired by this wonderful project by @joineryjo, Bunnings Workshop member @JoeAzza has shared a full step-by-step guide How to build a planter stand with a full list of tools and materials required.

Re: DIY plant stand

Thanks for the tag @Jason@gitzy I cut them myself after I got a great deal at Bunnings on a cheap mitre saw. You can definitely get them cut to size at Bunnings though just make sure you measure what lengths you want. I measured my width based on my pot plant size:) Oh and I used premium pine so kept costs low!

I love the design and its simplicity, I'm going to show my wife the pictures and hopefully will get the go ahead.

Well done Jo, make sure you don't copyright it! Ciao

You’ve provided the inspiration for my next project. I’ve also been looking for the right plant stands for my home. 
I love the minimalist look - congratulations on a fantastic job and thanks for sharing with us.
