Make your own solid wood plant stand

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: (2) Level: Beginner Category: , ,

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)!

Raymond était très impliqué et disponible pour tous. Il nous mettait en confiance. J’ai beaucoup apprécié mon atelier, et je suis fière de ce que j’y ai appris. Merci.

Très généreux, pragmatique et clair dans ses explications, avec des objectifs précis, Raymond n’a pas hésité à aborder des points transversaux pertinents, qui donnaient une vision également plus globale de notre approche.
