Skip To My Lou's Free How to Make a Lemonade Stand Plan
Secure the side panels to the face of the stand with the 4" strap hinges and flat head Phillips wood screws. You will need six screws for each hinge. The hinges should be placed on the exterior side of the stand. Each hinge should be placed approximately 9" from the top and bottom of the panels, as depicted here. See Note 1.
Prepare and attach the countertop.
2A: Drill two 1-1/16" holes into the countertop, so that the 1" PVC banner poles can be inserted later on. The holes should be approximately 3" from the edge of the countertop as pictured below.
2B: Next, secure the countertop to the face of the stand using two 3" door hinges and six wood screws, as pictured below. Be sure to place the door hinges to the inside of the stand to allow it to fold down for storage. It's important to leave a small gap (pencil-sized gap) to allow the countertop to fold properly.
Attach the banner.
4A: Put the 1" PVC couplers on top ends of both 6' pipes. The added thickness will help support the weight of the sign aka banner.
4B: Secure the sign to the two PVC pipes using the two 8 x 5/8 metal Phillips screws. Be sure the screws go through the coupler and pipe.
4C: Next, insert the two 6' x 1" PVC pipes with the sign attached into the holes in the countertop. The pipes should touch the ground when inserted. Finally, tack two nails into the back edge corners of the countertop securing it to the side panels. See note 2.
Note 1: Ensure there is a little gap (pencil-sized gap) between the side panels and the face to allow for the sides to fold properly when in storage.
Note 2: Remove the nails when you collapse the stand for storage.
