Tangent Plant Stand Created by LeahKSAmick — Tangent, an adjustable plant stand, snuggly embraces pots of various shapes and sizes. A tapered leg and slotted stretcher combine and repeat around a single axis, forming a stable triangular formation. When loosened, knurled fasteners threading through each stretcher into its adjacent leg allow the assembly to expand and contract. As Tangent's legs close in unison around a vessel, they brace the form to create an elevated and secure resting place to display favored flora in the home.

View the PDF for full instructions and a detailed list of materials & tools This project involves cutting and assembling three identical components from solid wood and features both fixed and moving joinery. An unconventional half-lap intersecting each leg and stretcher is designed to echo the form and curvature of the splayed legs. To create a sliding mechanism, which allows the stand to become adjustable, knurled thumb screws, threaded into angled cuts in the legs, move linearly along a slot cut into the stretchers.
