This is a little planter stand I made to fill a dead spot in my wife’s office. made it a few years ago, also “advised” by my adviser that it has a few water marks that would look better if gone . So guess what my next job is?
Made from native NZ Rimu

Beautiful piece !

How’d you cut the circles—band saw with a shop-made jig ??

Very cool piece. I bet a lot of us have “dead spots” that we’re considering projects for :-)

Nice piece and a nice choice of wood. It is always funny how a little suggestion becomes an item on the honey-do list.

Hey there topamax, had a peek at your profile – I to was an electrician for about 25 years then moved onto other things, served an apprentiship in the State Coal mines NZ, underground every day fixing winches, pumps etc. (dirty / dangerous job)
The design! well I had a patch some years ago where everything was “parallel supports” and I guess it just came to life from that

Being an electrician is a much better way of life than what you did :-)) That is a whole nother world down there and down under to boot!! :-))
