How to Build a Plant Stand

Building the frames

Building the frames

The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frames of the plant stands. Therefore, we recommend you to cut the components out of 1×3 lumber and to assemble the wooden frames with great care.

Drill pocket holes at both ends of the short components and lock them to the perpendicular components with 1 1/4 screws. Add glue to the joints to create a rigid structure.

Attaching the legs

Attaching the legs

Continue the garden project by attaching the 1×3 legs to the bottom and top frames. In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to drill pilot holes through the frames and to insert the 1 1/4″ screws into the legs.

Plumb the legs with a spirit level and make sure the frames are perfectly horizontal. Add glue to the joints in order to add strength to the structure. Leave no gaps between the components.

Fitting the cleats

Fitting the cleats

In order to create a rigid structure, we suggest you to fit 1×3 supports to the frames of the plant stand. Leave about 1/4″ from the top edges to the supports, as you will have to build the shelves out of a 12″x12″ tile.

Therefore, fit the tiles into place, making sure you select the right model for the design of the plant stand.

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 woodworking project and to protect the stand from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the stand in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
