As a woodworker for a long, long time, I have a pretty good idea how long it should take to make most woodworking projects, at least within a certain time frame. Occasionally I am completely and utterly wrong!! and this plant stand was one of those harsh realities.
I happen to grow Orchids and have for a long time, I don't have many and they don't always get the care they need and they let me know that by NOT producing flowers. Three 4 of my collection are letting me know that, so I decided to make a quick little plant stand for them that I could put beside patio doors with lots of light for them.

I have been a lover or old weathered wood as long as I can remember. I love the look of it, that grey color and all the details of the wood and years and years of living outside in the snow, wind, rain and sunlight. All these elements create unique pieces of wood art.
One of first places I collected old wood was from old pallets, but I soon learned they were riddled with so many problems I finally gave up on using these "gravel embedded" lumber choices after destroying table saw blades, dulling and pitting planer and jointer blades, they just weren't work the all the effort of finding decent ones to work with ... but there was more ...
