For my entry in the Summers Woodworking Third Annual Creative 2 X 4 Contest I chose to make a plant stand which has the form of a plant! Here’s the link to the “youtube video”:

It’s the first video I’ve ever posted, in fact, the first to ever leave my recording device.

Thanks for looking in and have a wonderful day all you Lumber Jocks.

This is such a wonderful piece and I love it. It has a character and uniqueness all its own and will definitely be a conversation piece and focal point wherever it is placed.

Very Nice. As Charles said it will definitely be a conversation piece. What are the overall dimensions? It is hard to tell from the picture and video.

Hey guys, thanks so much for the support.

Very unique and beautiful. I like the way you did the leaves on the stem but a little worried they will get broken off. Nonetheless it is an art piece so it is well worth that risk. Good luck and I hope you win.
