Since we craft ALL THE TIME, we’re always looking for ways to help us speed up our process! We recently paired up with KrazyGlue’s Fast Dry Wood Glue and we we’re not disappointed with the outcome!
We put it to the test and made a mid-century plant stand…and guess what? It’s STILL standing (shout out Elton John).
- Cut 1 inch square dowels to size. (We build our plant stand specifically for our pot. Make sure to measure your plant pot’s diameter and height to make sure it will fit.)
4 - 20 inch pieces
4 - 6 inch pieces
1 - 9 inch piece
2 - 4 inch pieces
2 - 4.5 x 9 pieces glued together
- Smooth rough edges with sandpaper and wipe with a damp cloth to remove any sawdust and let dry.
Now it’s time to glue! A little bit goes a long way! It takes only 6 minutes to fully cure and almost bonds instantly. That means no clamps and no overnight drying times!
- Glue the 6 inch pieces to the bottom of each the 20 inch pieces. Make sure that they’re flush as possible and let dry. (The 6 inch pieces will help stabilize and be used to hold the bottom shelf.)
- On the workspace, lay 2 legs parallel to each other with the feet facing in. Glue the 9 inch cross bracket between them 2 inches down from the top.
- Carefully glue the 4 inch cross brackets to the remaining other legs 2 inches down from the top.
- Stand up all legs and glue the 4 inch cross brackets to the 9 inch piece creating an “X”.
- Fit and level the shelf on the bottom feet and glue to secure.
We left ours all natural because we’re sexy like that!
A wood stain or a coat of paint would look great too!
