Project

Traveling Houseplant

Introduction

Heavy potted plants are easily moved with a homemade dolly.

Materials

  • Flat stone
  • Potted plant
  • 3/4-inch-thick exterior plywood
  • Wood stain
  • Four casters

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Find a flat stone that is large enough to hold the pot.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a piece of 3/4-inch-thick exterior plywood into a square just smaller than the stone. Stain the plywood to match the stone's color, and attach four casters to the bottom.

  3. Step 3

    Set the stone on the plywood and the pot on the stone. Hold the pot when moving to avoid tipping.
