Plant Stand

So for Christmas, my mother in law wanted a plant stand. I had previously done a plant stand for my brother, which was cherry with tapered legs.
I decided to do something a bit different this time, so I got some salvaged pallet wood I had been saving, and got to work. It’s shaping up to be a pretty cool plant stand, with remnants of the pallet wood, like nail holes. I think the wood is african mahogany. I shaped the legs on the band saw, then used my spindle sander to smooth them down. The stand top is glued up pieces of the wood, and the crossbeams are fixed using glue and pocket hole screws. The finish I used is Maloof’s oil and poly mix, with a topcoat of Johnson’s Paste Wax.
