I volunteer for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation of Rochester, NY. A group of woodworkers, mainly retired old guys like myself, build wooden devices to help our wheelchair bound clients achieve a more independent lifestyle. We have a woodworking shop at the care facility where we do most of our work.
I was recently asked to build 2 square plant stands to enclose a couple of plastic plant containers. The director intends to plant a decorative fern in the boxes to auction off at an upcoming charity event.
I used red oak for the frame and 1/4” oak plywood for the enclosure. All frame joints were doweled using a Dowelmax. The boxes turned out looking better than I expected.
