Brooklyn Limestone Farmer's Market Stand
plans to DIY Farmer's Market stand!
5 - 1x2 @ 8 feet long
3 - 1x3 @ 8 feet long
7 - 48" long x 1-1/2" wide wood lath pieces
2" self tapping wood screws (#8) or 1-1/4" pocket hole screws (for building frames)
3/4" finish nails or staples or small screws (for attaching bottoms to trays)
2 - basic butt hinges (for attaching frame pieces together)
Also recommend 1-1/4" screws for attaching frames to the trays
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Start by building the front frame. Stefanie used wood screws, but if you have a Kreg Jig, you can also use that, set on the 3/4" setting with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Build the back frame just like the front frame.
Next, build three of the crates. Use the wood screws or your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock. The wood lath can just be nailed and glued (or stapled) to the bottom with 3/4" fasteners, as the weight will be distributed to the front and back frames.
Attach the two frames together with the hinges. Then set the bottom tray on the bottom rungs, and work upward. For more stability, attach the frames to the crates.
