Started with three chunks of 2×10 cut-offs….Also had a couple dowels floating around in the shop. Scrap 2×10s were too big for my fire pit….might as well build something out of them? Longest of the three was resawn in to blanks for legs. The second one was a “Knot Farm” so it was resawn into stock for aprons, and extra parts as needed.

Start with these…

End with this. The third chunk was left alone….except..I beveled the edges along the underside….to look like it was 3/4” thick…..

Otherwise, it would look a bit clunky….
Legs have a curve to them..

At least at the foot. Bandsaw to cut two faces to make a curved foot. Legs were slimmed down to 1” x 1”
This will get painted, later, as soon as the Boss decides what colour to use…then it goes out onto the porch as a Plant Stand…

Thanks for looking.

Super save from the fire pit. Those little Ladies feet are something the Boss will like. They take the 2x right out of it, and make it look like fine furniture, and add a nice balance to the heavy top.

Did ya do something to the top after the middle pic showing it? It looks twice as thick in that pic. The other 2 showing it, it looks thinner.

Thanks for posting.

Fuzzy Camera. Top WAS a 2×10…..Edges have been beveled to 3/4” ..like a raised panel.

Done with just handplanes…ala Paul Sellers.

Top of the top was left flat, other than a cove detail at the edges.

I think this is one of your best ones!

Bandit—You are like the MacGyver of the fire pile! Nice conversion from BTU’s to a plant stand.

Wow! Really great work and even better for it being scraps! My daughter would love something like that for her plants.
