My sister was having a baby shower and my wife asked me the day before to throw together something that could hold all the cupcakes she was baking. I didn’t want to just use dowels and cut circles in plywood. I did you plywood for the discs, though I wish now I didn’t. When I routed the ogee it chipped out like crazy, which I knew it would. I was in a hurry at the time and was in a bad mood. BAD EXCUSES! for bad work!!!
Anyway, for the shafts, I turned and carved little cupcakes. One is upside down and off balance. I didn’t have time to finish the thing before we had to get it to the shower. I was in for an embarrassment. It was packed full of women and it seemed life every one of them loved it….But it was poorly done and not finished? My sister still has it and will not through it out! I promised to make her a proper on soon!
