A cake stand is a real eye-catcher when standing on a beautifully festive table. Especially at Christmas, when the whole family celebrates together, friends and relatives come to visit and enjoy the festive mood. A great Etagere with muffins or other sweets, in the middle of the table is something special. Building a cake stand yourself is no hard thing. A homemade cake stand is also a great gift, which is both unique and very practical. With a walk in the cellar you can find very interesting objects that can be used, for example, old dishes, records, ladder … The possibilities are endless and entirely up to your imagination. We’ll show you now how to do one.
Etagere itself build from old dishes
When the weather is bad you can stay home comfortably and create something beautiful. You should just look what has remained on old dishes and choose 3 matching, different sized plates and matching tools. Etagere pole can be bought on the Internet in various models and colors.
- 3 different sized plates
- 1 tier rack rod
- Drilling machine and rod-fitting drill bits for ceramics
- Permanent marker or felt pen
And let’s go … ..
After picking the three plates and being sure that they fit together well, they can be drilled. For this you should measure the plate exactly and draw the middle on the crossed adhesive strip. A cross of adhesive tape distributes tension during drilling and protects against cracks. It is also better to place under the plate a double or multiple folded cloth, which ensures distribution of vibration during drilling. Before drilling, the drill should be set to the slowest level. First drill slightly diagonally and then hold straight without great pressure and continue to drill. Here, a lot of patience is claimed but then come pleasing good results.
If there are small splinters around the hole, this is no reason to panic as they are hidden by the tiered pole. The adhesive tape remnants can be removed and the storage rack screwed together. The result is excellent and there is the unique and homemade cake stand for the next tea party. It was not that hard! Or?
