Make It Take It: Plant Stand CHICAGO

05/27/2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm CDT

Make your own plant stand from reclaimed material!

MAKE IT!  Students will learn how to craft a small rustic plant stand from reclaimed wood or wood flooring. You will review plans, select materials, and receive instruction and safety guidelines for the chop saw and drill. You will make their own measurements and cuts, and layout and assemble tables with glue and screws. 

TAKE IT!  You will then take your plant stand and keep your plant alive while it lives on the table!  If you buy a Couples Ticket, then one stand will be made by the couple.

 Note: If the ticket type you want is not available, we may be able to accommodate! Email us at workshops@rebuildingexchange.org to ask.



If you can’t make it to a class, you can transfer your ticket to someone else. Please email indigo@rebuildingexchange.org with their name and email address.

If Rebuilding Exchange needs to cancel a workshop, we will notify you 24 hours before the class and give you the option of refund or reschedule.

We do not currently offer other refunds or transfers between classes.


Your safety is our highest priority at Rebuilding Exchange, so we have put safety protocols in place for all of our in-person workshops to keep everyone safe. Those protocols are:

  • Reduced class sizes (no more than 8 participants in a class).
  • All instructors, assistants, and participants are no longer required to wear masks while attending workshops, but we still strongly encourage them (we do not have enough masks to provide to everyone, so you must provide your own mask).
  • Instructors and participants may be required to have their temperature taken (using a touchless thermometer) prior to the start of the class.
  • Social distancing will be implemented when possible and appropriate.
  • Breaks will be provided during the class for handwashing.
  • Everyone should follow recommended safety precautions, such as coughing into your elbow and refraining from touching their face.
  • All of the tools, equipment, door handles, cabinet and drawer handles, etc. that are touched will be disinfected both before and after the workshop.

Workshop Policies: Please review policies below before committing to a workshop.
