Another request from the wife—a potted plant stand. Made from redwood. The top was sawn on the bandsaw with a great circle cutting jig from The column was turned on the Grizzly lathe. I had never turned redwood before and was pleasantly surprised. I thought is turned very well. The top brackets and feet were first joined with a sort of bridal joint. Then grooves were cut in the column for the crossed pieces. Used a stacked dado on the table saw for the grooves. Oiled up with Watco Natural Danish oil, and a wipe on poly finish. You can get some great grain patterns in Redwood and the three tops show.
