If you want to learn more about lemonade stand plans, you have to take a close look over the instructions described in the article. There are so many planter designs and plans to choose from, that we really recommend you to browse through the related plans before buying the materials and starting the assembly. These planters are ideal for any entrance or even backyard.
If you want to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to plan everything with attention, as to prevent costly mistakes and to build a professional garden lemonade stand. Invest in high quality materials, such as cedar, pine or redwood, as the bench will be exposed to all kinds of weather. Apply a few coats of paint over the components, to enhance their appearance and to protect them from bad weather.

Building a lemonade stand
First of all, you need to build the three frames for the lemonade stand. As you can easily notice in the diagram, you need to build the components out of 2×2 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the short components and secure them to the perpendicular beams using 2 1/2″ screws. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.
The next step of the project is to attach the 1×4 slats to the sides of the lemonade stand. Drill pilot holes through the slats and secure them to the frames by inserting 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and leave no gaps between the components.
As you can easily notice in the diagram, you have to fit three frames between the sides of the stand. Use a spirit level to make sure the frames are level. In addition, check if the corners are square.
Next, fit the 3/4″ plywood shelves to the frames, as described in the diagram. Align the edges with great care and secure them into place using finishing nails and glue.
Fit the 1×4 slats to the front of the lemonade stand and secure them into place using 1 1/4″ screws or nails, after drilling pilot holes. Place the slats equally-spaced and make sure the joints are rigid.
Fit caster wheels to the bottom of the lemonade stand, as to be able to move it easily from one location to another. Align the caster wheels to the corners of the bottom frame and lock them into place with screws.
Build the countertop out of 1×4 slats. Cut the slats at the right dimensions and lay them to the structure of the lemonade stand. Drill pilot holes through the slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the frame, to create rigid joints.
Fit 1×2 trims to the sides of the lemonade stand, in order to enhance the look of the construction. Leave no gaps between the components and add glue to enhance the bond of the components.
Build the top sign out of 1×8 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the slat. Build the letters out of 1×8 lumber and glue them to the wooden sign.
Last but not least, you should take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, we recommend you to check if the components are locked into place properly and structure is rigid enough for your garden. Make sure there are no protruding screws or sharp edges.
PRO TIP: Fill the holes with a good wood filler and smooth the surface with medium-grit sandpaper. Apply several coats of paint or stain over the components, in order to protect them from decay. Check out the rest of the project to learn more about building garden projects.
