I made this stand after seeing the one made by schloemoe posted here a little while ago:
I also found that I had issue 177 of Wood Magazine, July 2007.
The legs are made of some old reclaimed 2×4s. All other parts are made from reclaimed Pine T&G. Everything is surfaced with hand planes, including reducing the thickness of the slats by a quarter inch. I’m really getting to enjoy using the planes :-)
Now, as some of you may know, we have a few cats. This means that having plants in the house is a losing battle (outside too … there are cats outside). This means that this will become another cat perch (anyone seeing a pattern to my projects?). I plan on placing it in front of the sliding glass doors so that the generally tolerable feline population can get all the morning sun they desire and maybe stay off the dining room table (wishful thinking, I’m sure).
There is no finish on this piece and I’m thinking it’ll stay that way.
Comments good, bad or in the middle are just fine and welcomed.
