A co-worker needed a cake stand for his Grandmothers 80 birthday. He provided a picture which I attempted tp duplicate.

The cake will sit on the top tier and cupcakes will be placed on the lower tiers

I joined all the wood from donated cut offs of 1 by 1×4’s. The base is 22×22, the second tier is 16×16 and top is 14×14

I turned the posts from scrap 4×4’. This was a fun project and learned that I need to purchase a grinder for my lathe chisels.

The finish is painted with 3 coast of gloss enamel.

Miss Honey Ma’am (my wife) makes cakes and I’m always having to cobble something together for her. I showed this to her and she fell in love with it. Do you mind if I make one like it? Well, not like it, because I’m not that good, but similar?
Have a good’un

Thanks for the compliments; I would be flattered if you borrowed my design.
