Default Simple walnut plant stand

I've been fairly busy on other things but my wife reminded me of a promise to make a plant stand so I used some social isolation time in the shop. Had some walnut that the local hardwood store sold cheap because it had a fair number of knots. Used mortise and tenon for the cross pieces. Wipe on oil based poly finish. Wife is super happy. I like the figure in the walnut - really stands out with the oil based finish.

No good deed goes unpunished - now I have 2 more to make. But seriously, I like doing this as they are quick to build and get lots of positive good will on the domestic front. I cut the mortises by hand and it was surprisingly therapeutic. I'll use the router for the next batch though.

Very nice, Phil...simple, elegant and a great look from "cheaper" wood...nice score on the wood. Lesson learned...don't go past the less than perfect pieces.

Great job Phil - love the leg design - If the plans you used were free - would you mind sharing?
