Would you like to get started in woodworking and make something elegant and practical? Would you like to show off that beautiful plant in your living room?
In this 3-hour workshop, our workshop leader introduces us to the basics of woodworking, by creating a solid wood plant stand. We’ll make a unique, customizable object, using materials from the circular economy! You can also make a planter in black expanded PVC, if you wish.
This workshop will be an opportunity to use different machines and tools, such as: mitre saws; band saws; disc, drum and orbital sanders; inverted routers; drills and screwdrivers; and trimmers. You’ll learn such techniques as: making 90° and angled cuts; drilling and aiming in solid wood; disguising a screw hole with dowels; chamfering; proper sanding.
There’s a choice of wood types and designs, and you can customize the height (12″ to 16″) and width (6″ to 14″) of your stand.
Note: if you already have the pot that will sit on your stand, don’t forget to take its measurements (diameter of pot and saucer).
Skills required: none, everyone’s welcome!
The price includes all the materials you’ll need, plus lots of professional advice (on wood, not horticulture)!
