When I saw this pedestal stand, I was shocked at the price. I had parts laying around to make something nearly identical. (for FREE)
I dug out this old bed piece from my stash. Doesn’t everyone have such random items in their stash?
I cut it down to size with my compound miter saw.
I cut some scrap 2×10’s into squares.
I routed the edges with my router.
I applied some stain, a combination of Jacobean and Mahogany, both from Minwax– then drilled a hole in the middle.
To get a good tight hold I used Gorilla Wood Glue.
I attached the pieces with drywall screws and allowed it all to set up.
I used the combination of Jacobean and Mahogany to get the top and bottom pieces to match the original bed part.
I LOVE putting bits and pieces together. I did it with my Photo Display Stands, Candlesticks and More, and my Small Red Porch Post.
As I’ve said before—I don’t think I got to play with blocks as a child!
What would you use this little baby to display?
