Just before Easter my pastor mentioned that he could use two more plant stands to match the pair that sit behind the altar. The originals are a Mutt and Jeff, one is taller than the other. I took careful measurements of the originals and examined how they were put together.
After a while I managed to scrounge up the money to buy the wood and I got to work, in between doing a few other projects. Whoever built the originals was evidently like me. The uprights were cut from pine 1×8’s cut to the proper length. I deviated by using plywood for the base and tables because they were cupped on the originals. Sanding and black spray paint finished these up. I delivered them today. Unfortunately the position they sit in does not do well for photography, but you get the idea from the photos of them before painting in my shop.
[Below] Bad drawing of how the 1×8 is cut to create the uprights.
[Below] Looking down the length of the supports. What kind of joint is this (aside from being an edge/face joint? I’ve had people call this a swastika joint, but they weren’t woodworkers.
