Easy DIY wood Christmas Tree collar - free plans by ANA-WHITE.com
FOR THIS CHRISTMAS TREE COLLAR
4 - 1x8 @ 8 feet long
1- 1x3 @ 8 feet long
1 - 1x4 @ 8 feet long
6 - 1x8 @ 32" - cut two from an 8 foot board, and then a 30-1/2" to get all cuts in
6 - 1x8 @ 30-1/2"
4 - 1x3 @ 23-1/4"
4 - 1x4 @ 23-1/4"
Lay 2 - 1x3s on flat surface and place two 1x8 @ 32" on top, lined up with each end. Use 1-1/4" nails and wood glue to attach.
Position center 1x8 in middle with even gaps on both sides and attach.
Repeat to build two of the underlapped ends.
Now for the overlapped ends.
Repeat steps 1-2, but leave a 1-1/2" gap on ends of 1x8s. A 1x2 scrap works great as a guide (just clamp to the 1x8 or hold in place while attaching).
After Christmas tree has been set in stand, screw panels around tree base with 2" screws.
NOTE: We also added plywood scrap pieces on top for resting gifts on top of Christmas tree collar.
