I really liked the video!

Also an excellent design.

How long would you say it took you to build one of those?

Thanks for the video. I’m looking for a way of presenting my pots of plants … I think you’ve just provided it.

Your answers:
@Dennisgrosen – I tried a few different clamp configs, all failed miserably. Ended up using good ‘ol hot glue to keep things together temporarily while I got the dowels and outdoor wood glue in place. The joints feel rock solid and I’ll be interested to see how they hold up against the elements.

@Jonathan – I bet you could get one done in a weekend, if you can get the shop time. There isn’t a lot of setup on this one compared to a more formal piece of furniture. I took much longer to built three of them but most of my time was spent prototyping. Please take advantage of my work and copy freely!
