I made new umbrella stand for us (my family), inspired by Wood Work Web – You Tube video
( ). Similar design, which I changed to suit our needs.
Two sides and top tapered legs were made of walnut , bottom is oak board (to get on weight due balance) and rest was made of (I think) pallet beech wood. Finish is two layers of varnish. There is main compartment for long umbrellas and small for short ones. Overal outside dimensions 38×28x52cm.
Joints – double mortise with home made – tenons/biscuits (chance to try my horizontal slot mortiser).

I like it!
It looks well made and has a beautiful finish.

Home made “biscuits”, I do that too, can’t afford the Festool Domino tool.
The Domino costs more than my 45+ year old table saw.

Very nice Ivan. We could get a lot of use out of that here in our very wet climate.
