I made this up after the wife brought home a cake stand made out of wire. It nearly caused a divorce when I said the wire one looked horrible, so had to make this for her to placate her. It has become a big seller now. This one is made from recycled Narra, but we make from several different hardwoods.

Also I have now put together a Face Book Page. I would appreciate any visits to it by members here and if possible any likes of the page is even more appreciated.

Thanks all and keep up the sawdust production

That is a really neat design. Does the plate balance or is there something that “Grips” it when a cake is placed on it?

Hi Michael1

The cross piece under each plate has rubber buttons that are a bit sticky. These seem to hold the plate well and even when the edge is pushed, it does not move very easily. Also the ends of the cross come up to the ridge on the bottom of the plate which also stops it moving

That’s a really cool cake stand. Not a straight line to be found. I love the finish too.
