A quick design and build project.
A stand for a potted epiphyllum in our garden. The plant is placed in a cluster of other larger plants, and needs to be raised above them. Outdoor furniture takes a beating from the sun and daily over-spray from misting plants. I build outdoor pieces on the substantial side, and they last far longer than anything we can buy. Like all of my outdoor furniture, it is made from 2x redwood with galvanized screws, and is designed to be built with simple tools.
I start with sketches, then make large scale drawings like these at left to understand how the piece comes together and solve any problems.
