Hey everyone! Kellee here 🙂 So for this project I was SOO excited because when I thought of the idea I was certain I could handle every step of it without the assistance of Mr. Handyman husband. I even told him all about it and was excited to tell him “I do NOT need your help!” 🙂 So I tackled the project while he was at work and I must tell you that I did it ALL by myself. Right down to hanging on the wall. Okay, I did have to ask for a quick answer on how to adjust the chop saw, but come on, basically did it all by myself!! High five!!!
- Wood board
- Wood glue
- Nail Gun
- Torch (or stain or paint)
- Chop saw
How it went down:
- First, was to cut the board into 6 equal lengths. (hexagon = 6) 🙂
- I measured my first cut at 7.5″
- Then from the there I made sure to cut each end of the board at a 30 degree angle. (this is where I needed help figuring out how to adjust the saw)
- I did this for all 6 boards and made sure they were the same length.
- Then I torched all the boards. (Diggin the torched look these days)
- Next, I set up all 6 boards in the shape of the hexagon.
- I applied wood glue where each board connects.
- Then, got out the nail gun to secure them together. (probably the hardest part for me)
- Finally, I put it up on the wall.
This was a simple and fairly quick project and I love it as a plant stand. You can also make it so several hexagon shelves are attached together, which looks super awesome if you have a good wall for it.
