How to build your own planting table — with a free cheat sheet from Scout Regalia

August 5, 2010 |  7:07 am

The Echo Park design office Scout Regalia is giving new meaning to the term "Made in California" by launching a series of free instruction sheets showing how to build your own furnishings.

The SR Planting Table, above, is the first of the SR Cutsheet Projects. The outdoor plant stand is designed as a simple and affordable project for the average DIYer; it requires only an electric drill, hand saw and countersink drill bit.

"Good design should be accessible to everyone," Scout Regalia co-founder Makoto Mizutani said. "We decided to start the Cutsheet Project as a way of opening up the design-build process to people and hopefully instilling an appreciation for building."

The easy-to-read instruction sheet is available as a free download. Contact Scout Regalia at info@scoutregalia.com.
