However, what I will dwell on in this post is the few tips and things I learned from undertaking this project.
7 Things you Need to Know before Making A Mid-Century Plant Stand
1| Buy your planter before you make your plant stand. You need to know the dimensions of your planter before you make your plant stand. Make measurements at home before you head out to buy the wood and materials you will need.
2| You only need basic woodworking tools. In addition to the miter box and saw combo, I used wood glue, wood screws and a chisel. I also already had a power drill and drill bits on hand.
3| It’s a very easy project for woodworking beginners. This plant stand is fairly easy to make, and does not require a lot of time.
4| Don’t eyeball your measurements. Take your time to measure your planter pot and get the right dimensions, or you will have to make adjustments, start over, or end up with a wobbly plant stand.
5| Have the wood pieces cut at the hardware store, if possible. This step will save you some time in the process.
6| The cost of making the plant stand depends on the tools and materials you already have on hand. I spent less than $20 to make each plant stand because I already had a drill, wood glue, chisel and miter box and saw on hand.
I recently purchased a kreg Pocket hole kit and will be making this plant stand again soon, and I’ll be sure to capture the process for you to see. I’m hoping it’ll be easier than the first two times.
