Building a simple plant stand
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the supports for the flower pots. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to build the components out of 1×2 lumber. Mark the cut lines on the pieces of lumber and adjust their sizes with a circular saw.
Drill pocket holes at both ends of the wooden components and lock them together, as described in the diagram. Center the short components to the long ones and insert 1 1/4″ screws.
The next step of the indoor woodworking project is to attach the legs to the supports, as described in the diagram. Therefore, make sure the corners are square and secure the supports to the legs by using 1 1/4″ screws. Adjust the height of the supports according to your needs. Fit the rest of the legs to the supports.
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.
