A little housewarming gift for my sister I whipped up this plant stand super fast and I’m sharing the tutorial so you can make one too!
For reference this pot is 12″ diameter at the upper most portion and 8″ diameter at the base. The pot itself is 9 1/2″ tall so you can make adjustments as needed based on your pot size.
I finished this plant stand in gloss white which is a nice contrast against wood floors and grey planter. You can finish however you like – stain, paint, maybe a fun color or dip the legs – the possibilities are endless.
This is a really simple project that gives beautiful finishing touch to your houseplants and keeps the planter off the floor.
Check out my video tutorial below where I share the process start to finish:
Below are a few real life process photos with notes as well as a link to printable plans. Be sure to read through entirely before beginning so you understand the process.
Once you have the pieces cut assembly is rather quick.
In Step 1 you need to notch the support pieces to create a strong and sturdy base. Mark both pieces at center for a 1 1/2″ wide notch that is 3/4″ deep.
Use a bandsaw or jigsaw to carefully cut out the notches.
In Step 2 secure the support pieces together using wood glue and countersunk 1 1/4″ wood screws (on the underside).
Good luck building your plant stand!
