This mixer stand was built for my mom for Christmas. She had been talking about needing one to sit at the end of her counter-top for her Kitchen Aid mixer.

All built with 2×4s from Home Depot and some walnut dowels. Early American stain and urethane satin finish. I tried several new things (for me) on this build like planing with a router and mortise and tenon joints. This stuff is fun!

A few pictures from the build. More in my blog.

Nicely done Lalen!

No more lifting that heavy mixer! I bet she will have a big smile on her face when she sees this!

Those Kitchen Aid mixers are very heavy. My wife keep hers in the pantry and guess who has to lift it when she wants it.

I have used framing lumber for many projects that don’t need fine expensive wood’s to look good.

Merry Christmas!

Very nice! It was fun to watch your build. The finish almost looks like you took a torch to it. Very rich.
