Build this 3/4 scale Limbert plant stand from ONE 2×4. Painted it brown, with a black top.

You can read all about it over at my website, which I won’t link here, lest some flip out.

SWEET! That is just about the coolest thing I’ve seen all week—maybe all month. Very nice!

That’s a great looking table! It’s amazing what you can do with a 2×4!

How long was the 2×4 and did you rip some of it?

Nicely done

It was a standard 8’, Arlin. And by “rip some of it” you meant did I cut it down the length of it, yes. It was a pretty complicated cut.

Here is a rendering of the bare wood and how I painted it. The table’s measurements are about 1’ 11’ x 9” square.

Very nice build, pashley. Personally, I would like a link to the project details if only to show the analysts they are not in charge.

Great work and design Pashley. I don’t have any problem with links and those who object don’t have to click on it.

Very nice. With such little wood required you could use an expesive 2×4 made of oak or a different type of wood that takes stain.
Well done.
