Three Tier Plant Stand Plans
PLATE XVII. The article shown in the present plan, in complete detail, is a triple tier stand intended for the display of plants in full flower. The three boxes are so disposed as to give a pyramidal effect to the display. Plants of a somewhat tall habit should be placed in the lower, lateral boxes; while the plants occupying the central box may properly be of a more compact and spreading habit. We pass these remarks to show the idea which dictated the design.
The side view of the stand is given in Fig. i. Fig. 2 is a vertical section through one of the end boxes, on the line AB, showing also an end of the central box. Fig. 3 is a vertical section through the centre of the stand, on the line CD.
These three drawings show to the fullest extent the general construction of the entire article ; but to leave nothing to the imagination of the amateur, enlarged details, showing the methods of jointing, are given in Figs. 4, 5, and 6 : these require no explanation, as the portions of the stand they represent are obvious. The perforations in the sides of the boxes are purposely made simple, and only call for the use of the brace and bits.
Any wood may be used in the construction, and the whole may be finished with varnish or oil paint, as circumstances or taste may direct.
