Materials Needed:

  • 1/2" wooden dowel rods (4)
  • 90-degree 3/4" brass fittings (2)
  • T-shaped 3/4" brass fittings (4)
  • 3/4" brass caps (4)
  • neon orange paint
  • foam brush
  • pen
  • tape measure
  • liquid nails
  • hand saw
  • plant in 9" round pot

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.
