How to make an umbrella stand out of wood - DIY projects

Figure 134 shows a new idea for an Umbrella-stand and Fig. 138 the details for its construction. The base holds a tin muffin-pan, each cup of which forms a receptacle for an umbrella end. These pans are made with six, eight, or twelve cups so you can plan your stand to hold as many umbrellas as you wish.

Make the two frames of equal size and just large enough to hold the rim of the muffin-pan (the size of the pan used will determine the dimensions of these frames), using strips 2 inches wide, then cut four uprights of the sizes shown, and fasten them to the four corners so that they will just conceal the joints in the frames (see plan).

The muffin-pan should fit loosely enough in the lower frame so it may be removed easily for cleaning. It should be painted with a couple of coats of dull register-enamel to keep it from rusting, as well as to give it a finish.
