Hey everybody it's Taylor with Boydston Grove and
today we're going to show you how to make some stands for your plants. let's get into it! For the first plant stand, I'm just using
some leftover three-quarter inch plywood. It's only going to take two pieces to
make this so it's going to go really fast. For this first stand, I measured the
pots that were going to go on them so that way it would make
sure they have a nice fit. Now, because these two pieces
lock together, you don't even necessarily need glue because once you put
the plant in it, it'll stand up by itself. For the second stand I'm going to be
using some leftover cedar tongue and groove that I took out of a closet and a
couple pieces of scrap oak.
This stand is basically the same idea as the first stands,
it's just a little bit more intricate and I want the legs to be separate from the cross
piece and I also want the legs to be split. Once I got the design down
that I liked for the legs, it was just a matter of cutting them all out. I don't really have a particular
plant in mind for the second stand, but I know I want it to be bigger, so I'm
going to go ahead and just make it bigger than what our biggest pot already is, with the
intentions of us transplanting one of our plants. I used my nailer for a quick assembly
and then Krisztina puttied all the holes and applied a quick coat of stain. All right, all our plant stands are finished
and I'm really pleased with the way that they came out. I decided to make two of this
design over here so that I could paint one and leave one natural wood with a couple coats
of polyurethane. I just cut out the first piece and then used that as my template to cut out the
rest so it was a really fast project.
This one over here was a little bit more complicated, but
I really like the intricate design and I like the contrast between the oak and the cedar; it just
gives it a really unique look. It's obviously made for a bigger pot than this, but this is all I
had on hand but it just gives you a little example of what it's going to look like. All in all, I'm
really pleased with these and they were really simple projects that you can do over a weekend
and really hone in on your woodworking skills. If you enjoyed this video, make sure to like it.
