Lemonade stand

Editor's Choice - Jun 15, 2015

Its been a while since i have posted any new builds, i’ve been busy, but here we go. I had some one ask me for a lemonade stand for photo shoots, she showed me a pic of what she wanted and so i got to it. She told me how tall and as wide as possible, but still be able to fit in the back of her SUV. I started out with a 2×4 frame.

I then started fitting cedar planks to make the outside edge frames. Took a lot of sanding to get them smooth.

Once the outside frames were done i started laying the board on board pattern for the inside.

Once everything was cut, and fit, i started to stain them, the outside trim was stained with a Kona finish, and the inside was going to be a weathered grey, but i was not happy with the grey. I searched the stains and found a summer oak, i was very please with that color and the contrast with the Kona.

Once everything was stained i started assembly. I used staples on everything, and glue.

The top bar was awfully high, but that is what she wanted, so that is what i did, but as an added bonus, i made the top removable and adjustable. I drilled 3 holes on each side bar and put in a removable dowel to adjust in 5" increments, just incase there are shorter kids.

Over all i was extremely happy with the outcome, and if any one know a while back i threw together a pallet lemonade stand for my daughter, well after seeing this i trashed that! I will be making another for my daughter, but shorter of course.

this is the picture she showed me.

Woods: 2x4 stock western cedar
