This is a spur of the moment project that I came up with to get rid of some Hard Rock Maple scraps that were just laying around. I also wanted to try out a new homemade Bandsaw Jig that I had just made for the shop I used to work at. Originally, it was for my Brother-in-Laws wedding, but it’s actually been in about 5 before I handed it over to my Sister. Hope you like it and gives you a few ideas of your own.

Wow, that is really cool John.
I’m with Mike, my family is always wedding bound as well, and my two cake making daughters could really use a couple of those.
I don’t think mine will turn out as nice as yours, but thanks for the tip. I’m going to have a go at it.

Mortice & Tenon, and it wasn’t easy because of the Arc in the uprights. I actually made the tenons a hair big on purpose so I could shave them down to a perfect fit.
Thanks for the compliment.
