This is the first version of the Craftsman Taboret Plant Stand that I found in “Craftsman Furniture Projects” from the “Best of Woodworker’s Journal” series.

It is black walnut and soft maple with a couple of coats of Watco natural danish oil followed by a couple of coats of poly-wipe and finished with a couple coats of satin wax, buffed to a satin finish. Dimensions are 14×14x18. I added a few embelishments to the basic plans. The top is tapered and wrapped with a 1/8” strip of walnut. I also added walnut splines (although I don’t think that is an accurate description) to the top and bottom of each leg. A Mowtawi tile was set into the top and framed with walnut making the top look like a frame for the tile.

Now that it is finished I think it looks more art-nouveau than craftsman. I’m not sure where it will go in our Craftsman style house. I have 2 more versions I am still working on. Hopefully one of them will work in the corner that my wife asked me to build this for.
