This step by step diy woodworking project is about diy plant stand plans. I have designed this 3 tier wood plant stand so you can keep your flower pots organized. You can make this stand in less than one day and spend under 15 $. There are many other designs and plans to choose from when building projects for your backyard, so make sure you take a close look over the related plans that are featured on our site.
There are many plans and designs to choose from, so make sure you take a close look over the rest of the table plans featured on our website. Plan everything with attention and adjust the size and the shape of the project to suit your needs. Plumb the legs and make sure the corners are right-angled before inserting the galvanized screws into place. Drill pilot or pocket holes to prevent the wood from splitting.

DIY Plant Stand Plans
The first step of the project is to assemble the sides for the plant stand. In order to get a professional result, I recommend you to take accurate measurement and to use a good saw. Smooth the edges before locking the components together tightly.
Dill pilot holes through the horizontal supports, align the slats making sure the edges are flush and check if the corners are square. Next, insert the 1 1/4″ screws and add glue to the joints.
Assemble, the opposite side of the plant stand, as well. You should also remember that you can adjust the size of the plant stand to suit your needs. You can make the supports wider, narrower or even taller. You can add 2 tiers or more than 4. It is a matter of personal taste and of needs.
Next, you need to build the braces for the shelves. Use a jigsaw to round the ends of the supports and smooth everything with 120-grit sandpaper.
Clamp the braces to the two sides of the plant stand, as shown in the diagram. Use a spirit level to make sure the braces are perfectly horizontal. In addition, drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the legs.
On of the last steps of the project is to attach the 1×3 slats to the supports. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the braces. Place a scrap piece of 1/4″ plywood between the slats, so you can create even gaps between the components.
This 3 tier plant stand can be used both inside your home or on the patio, as it features a modern design and it has compact dimensions. If you need more shelves for your flowers, you can easily add them to the structure.
Fill the rest of the holes or dents with wood putty. After it dries out, smooth everything with 120-220 grit sandpaper and apply the primer. Last but not least apply the coats of paint to enhance the look of the project and to protect it from decay.
This is a great one day project that will add character to your patio or to your balcony. You can even add wine supports to the legs so you can make the most of the space. The list of possibilities is endless and it is only limited by your imagination.
