Cake Ball Display
Our oldest daughter makes cake balls and she had a woman contact her about making cake balls for her wedding. She also wanted them displayed on a three-tier stand so guess who was ask to make the display.
I used birch plywood for the tops and sides of the tiers and select pine for the trim to help keep the cost of materials down. All the hardware is stainless steel so no rust and easy to clean. I did miss taking a few pictures near the end of the project. I guess I was worried about getting it finished and did not think about taking pictures.
I used pocket holes to assemble the tops and sides of the tiers. I used the CNC to drill all the holes in the tops to hold the cake ball sticks. I cut the trim profile on both sides of the trim blanks then cut the trim from the blanks. I made the risers from select pine boards glued up and trimmed square. The pictures do show all of this but there were other parts made and I did not get pictures of them.
I made a support box that goes under the bottom tier that the all thread rod that holds everything together goes through and washer and wingnut clamps against. There is also a block bonded in the top tier that is glued up with a wingnut and washers inside to receive the top of the all thread rod. That block was machined on the CNC so the wingnut and washers could be inserted.
To drill the holes in the 10 1/2" risers I had to use my Shopsmith knockoff and it was buried in the corner of the shop and had not been used for about 8 years.
