Bonsai stand, strong, durable, elegant, all weather timber outdoor cedar bonsai dai

Posted by

I had a request to design and build an outdoor bonsai stand. So I came up with a design from durable western red cedar that would withstand the harsh outdoor conditions. The design is simple with clean lines that allows you to create different heights to display your bonsai however you like. The stand or "dai" (as they say in japanese) can be left in its natural timber state, where it  will age to a wonderful silver /grey colour to blend into the natural environment. However you can treat the timber with a variety of coatings to create whatever look you are after.. The stands are glued and screwed for long life. the stand below in the photo 29cm x 29cm x 12cm high. However we also make a larger one 39cm x 39cm x12 cm high. Fell free to have a look at our website for more information
