I made 5 plant stands for Christmas gits in 2005. The plan is from Barry Black in the April 2005 issue of Popular Woodworking. This was one of the more challenging projects I have done, but very rewarding.
Two of the stands have a cherry base and curly maple top and shelf.
Two of the stand have a walnut base and curly maple top and shelf.
One stand has a cherry base with a quilted maple top and shelf.
Each stand is finished with GF Arm-R-Seal Urethane Topcoat from General Finsihes, no stains.
I marked the bottom of the shelf with the type of wood and finished used.
I made a MDF template of a leg and then rough cut them out then used the template to router them to final size. The legs are mitered and attached to the legs with splines.
To find the quilted and curly maple in the sizes I needed, I bought the boards on eBay. The walnut and cherry from a local wood supplier.
