This stand is one requested by my wife. She is a lover of plants and vases so she wanted a display stand that she could use for both. The details of this design are mine, but obviously, I’ve borrowed from other similar stands that I’ve seen elsewhere.
The wood is the most commonly available hardwood in Australia, Vic Ash – AKA Tassie Oak. It’s one of about four species of wood that are market under a variety of names include the two mentioned. It’s neither a true Oak nor Ash; it’s a eucalyptus.
For durability and water resistance, the finish is MinWax Wipe-On Poly, gloss.
The two shelves are MDF veneered with Tassie Oak and within a mitered Tassie Oak frame. For me the challenge was working out the angles created by the four legs that are inlined at 5 degrees.
My wife likes it, so that’s all that matters to me.
