Cake Stand

Most of us have seen wood turned plates and platters! They are lovely to use either daily or for special occasions. I know my wife loves putting out snacks for our visitors on wood turned plates.

We've also put out birthday cakes and pies on some of my wood platters. But how do you make that special birthday cake stand out?? The answer is that you raise the platter onto a stand so that it stands proud of the table. By turning a "raised platter turning", you are making a cake or pie stand.

Now the question becomes, "Who wouldn't like a beautiful cake stand to display their cake and pie masterpieces?". Off to the woodshop with you...

This is a very detailed, 3-page, photo tutorial on how to make a 2-piece cake stand. Turning a cake stand is an excellent way to tell the cook that you appreciate their work! By making the cake (or pie) stand out, it says, this is a very special thing!!

Chas takes you through each step so that you can be successful making this project. So, isn't it time that you told someone that their baking is special to you??
