My wife occasionally asks me to make something to put a plant on. I was in a creative mood, I think, and decided to make another small stand that included a screw. This was sort of based on a piano chair. As you turn the top, the legs will expand out or collapse in. Table is about 2’ tall and 100% Maple.

Good job on the plant stand, great idea! Must fold up good for moving or storing.

It folds up nicely, but of course the only movement it gets is when someone wants to see how it works. Otherwise it holds a plant up!

I like it as well. Are you making your own threaded components?
