African Violet

My wife’s African Violet liked the sun in the southern window, but it couldn’t find a home with our existing furniture.

While my daughters didn’t think I could design and build anything that wouldn’t second as a jack-stand for a 3/4-ton truck, I turned a collection of scrap hardwoods into the table below. It fit our decor, protected the plant from knock-abouts, kept the moisture off the carpet and slides around like a dream.
