I built a few of these for weddings and graduation parties this year. Very simple, quick and cheap. They look great when loaded with deliciousness!!!!
Plywood circles cut out using my shop built band saw jig, a few pieces of 3” PVC pipe, a length of threaded rod, some nuts and washers and (2) counter sunk T-nuts. Takes about an hour or so cut out the parts and put together. Easy to take apart and store also.

thanks for looking,

I see many applications for this. Have you considered lazy Susan?

My wife and I were “debating” building one of these today for her. Nice job.

how did you attach the layers? you said threaded rod, I’m assuming it runs inside of the pvc pipe.

Yes, MrNorwood, the top and bottom layer have a t-nut recessed in them and I run a threaded rod down the center of the PVC pipe pieces. Each shelf has a small hole in the center and the PVC pipe is cut into 7” lengths. I run a nut and fender washer at each layer to pinch the shelves in place. This creates a very sturdy holder.
thanks for looking!!
