Mahogany Bonsai Stand
I designed this based on traditional Japanese bonsai stand designs. The top is solid quarter sawn mahogany with a mitered edge. The edge seam is hidden in a 1/8″ square groove set in 3/4″ from the edge. I was innitially concerned about the top movng a little (even though it’s quarter sawn), but years later it’s stable. The legs are doweled into the top. The stretchers are set into the grooves on the legs, and mitered on the outside corners. The delicate pieces were a challenge to make – lots of hand work.
