This step by step woodworking project is about garden plant stand plans. This article features detailed instructions for building a simple vertical outdoor plant stand with an elegant design. We have designed the plans to keep the expenditures under control and to involve the least amount of work possible. These are the easiest plant stand plans you will find on internet.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the plant stand won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a plant stand

Building the base

Building the base

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the base for the plant stand. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to cut both ends of the 4×4 lumber in a decorative manner. Smooth the edges with fine-grits sandpaper.

Attaching the small legs

Attaching the small legs

Attach 1×4 pieces of lumber to the bottom of the component. Drill pilot holes and insert 1 1/4″ screws through the wood pieces into the supports. Add glue for a tight bond.

Fitting the vertical supports

Fitting the vertical supports

Continue the project by building the vertical supports for the plant stand. Use a jigsaw to make the top of the supports round. Center the support to the base and make sure the corners are square. Drill pilot holes through the base and insert 4 1/2″ screws into the vertical support. Add waterproof glue to the joint.

Building the gussets

Building the gussets

The next step of the project is to build the gussets for the garden plant stand. Mark the cut lines on the 2×6 beams and get the job done with a jigsaw. Smooth the edges and drill pocket holes along the straight edges.

Fitting the bottom gussets

Fitting the bottom gussets

Fit the gussets to the base of the structure and lock it into place using 2 1/2″ screws and glue. Leave no gaps between the components.

Fitting the shelves supports

Fitting the shelves supports

Next, attach the shelves supports to the vertical components. Insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the supports into place, after adding waterproof glue.

Attaching the shelves

Attaching the shelves

Fit the 1×6 slats to the supports, as shown in the diagram. Insert 1 1/4″ screws through the supports into the shelves.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the project and to protect the wooden plant stand from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.
