STEPS TO BUILD A WEST ELM INSPIRED PLANT STAND
Longest Arm: 10
Short Arms: 4 5/8ths"
Three easy cuts, that's it. You arms aren't the full width of the longest arm because you need to subtract the width of the wood that you're screwing the arms into. Also, when cutting your pieces, take into account that your saw blade is 1/8th". So leave extra room for that. But if you're getting these cuts done at the hardware store, you don't need to worry about that.
Apply your wood glue/silicone to the edges where your dowels are and then put all the pieces together. Allow a good 12 hours for the wood glue to dry before you put your plant stand to use!

I really like that you mention adding the measurements (and include what the measurement actually is )of the kerf in to the middle area. I don't think I have seen even one single other DIY tutorial online that has been this specific about it. I think that's very useful information.
