    plant stand

    My wife recently took a piece of indoor furniture outside for one of her plants. I told her being out in the weather would destroy it. No matter, she wanted a stand for her plants. Oh, well. Not wanting to see the stand destroyed I went in the shop and put together this plant stand for her.
    It was made from scrap red cedar. Oh, how I wish my planer had a resettable and accurate setting for thickness. Machine works fine but lacking this feature is frustrating.
    I didn't paint or finish. Rocks will rot faster than this wood and it will turn gray with time anyway.
    Inside stand is now back inside.

    Frank, that is really neat. Is the top of the same material? That is a very practical, functional and appropriate gift for my wife, hmmm, another thing for the to do list!

    That came out great. A DRO will solve your planer repeatability problem. I became addicted to them on my lunchbox (a Wixey add-on) and added one to my G0453Z (a Grizzly provided iGaging product).

    Looks good. Should really look nice with plants all over it too.

    Thanks all.
    Jonathon, yes, it is all red cedar. About six years ago I bought a 4'x4' pallet load of scrap red cedar from a small manufacturing company near me. I planned to sell about a million pen blanks from it. Long story short: Fusco free enterprise venture #246 failed.
    Enneyhow, I still have much of it left and use for the occasional odd project when I can find pieces that will work.
