- Glue for wood
- 4 Dowel Pins
- 3/4 x 3/4 square hardwood
- 1 x 2 pine (you may use a 6-8 foot piece
- An electric saw
- A drill
- A jig pocket hole
- Four screws
We will begin by taking the pot you will use, measuring the width of the broadest part, usually the top position. You’ll have the dimensions that you’ll need.
- Mine are 16-inch legs
- 4 and 5/8 short arms
- 10-inch long arm.
All you need is three cuts. Remember that your saw blade is one-eighth inches when you’re cutting your pieces; therefore, leave some extra room. Also, the arms aren’t the exact length since you need to consider the width of the wood that you are screwing the components.
#1 let us begin with the Legs:
Cut the Plant Stand legs from the three-quarter and three-quarter wood and separate it aside.
#2 The Plant Stand Platform:
Use the one by two wood and three portions that design an x to secure the pot straight up.
-Cut a piece that should be the most expansive piece of your pot. We will call it to piece A.
-Cut another piece just like the previous one (piece A). However, this time, we will take away the thickness of that piece. Then cut the piece in the middle to acquire piece (B) and piece
Drill the holes in your longest arm that will hold your dowels
#3 Drill the connecter holes:
These are two holes, one on each arm. By marking the exact middle of your piece A, you will be able to drill the two holes, which are the length of your wooden dowels.
Take your pieces B and C, line them up with your holes, and mark them using a crayon. You’ll be able to drill the holes into the marks for your dowels to go mostly in.
#4 Time to make the pocket holes:
Use the Jig pocket hole system to make the pocket holes, which will allow you to attach the arms to the legs of your project.
#5 Time to Assemble your Piece:
Now, you are ready to tighten all four components into the four legs, which means you are almost there. Apply your silicone or glue to the corners where the dowels are; then, everything will be well-adjusted.
#6 Determine the Height of your Stand depending on the Shape and Size of your Flower Pot:
With the help of a friend, position your pot; therefore, you can see where you would like it to be. Once you select a look, mark the bottom edge of the platform on one leg.
#7 Put the legs together:
Put on a little bit of glue at the corner end of your platform piece, maintain one leg straight, and mark the end of the platform piece with the marks you have been making.
Use a screw to attach the platform to the leg piece and repeat with the remaining legs.
Allow at least 10 hours for the wood glue to dry before you are ready to enjoy your new plant stand.
You can enjoy its natural beauty, or you can stain it, whichever is your preference.
