I watched Norm make one of these years ago and decided to make one for myself for my office. Office converted to a cube when my company moved so the plant stand came home. My new house screams for two of these to keep people from walking on the wooden grate over the air return. Plus the plant needs to be split and repotted. Plus the pair, with the cascading succulents (when they are divided and healthy again) will look pretty cool there.

Biscuited the legs to the rails and pocket screwed the top down. Relieved the holes for the screws a bit for motion.

I modified his design by only bringing the taper halfway up the leg… just made things a bit easier. I go back and forth on whether I think the taper and the angle are optimized. I will be building two more of these with shelves halfway down for speaker/art stands.

I think I made at least four of these for relatives over the years. All were appreciative.

They look elegant especially with the plants in place. Great design and execution. Well done!
