Measure, Mark and Cut Dowels
Measure and mark the lengths of dowels you will need. Using the hand saw, cut the following lengths: 3 20” long, 3 7” long, 3 3” long, 3 2” long. These measurements are to fit a plant in a 9” pot.
Make the Plant Stand Base
We’ll make the base that the plant will sit on first. In one T-shape fitting, use the Liquid Nails to glue both 2” long dowels into opposite ends and a 3” dowel into the center. On either end of the 2” long dowels, glue a 90-degree brass fitting. In the other end of the 90” brass fittings, glue a 3” long dowel.
Assemble Top of Stand
Glue each exposed dowel end into the center of a T-shaped brass fitting. On top of each T-shaped fitting, glue a 7” long dowel. This is the top of the plant stand.
