Here’s a 3 Tier Dessert Stand or Tray that I made a couple of months ago for my daughter’s Portfolio review for her Pastry Program at a Culinary School. This was where they set up a table of their creations at the ballroom at the convention center. There is a table judging and prospective employers are invited to come. Sort of their final project.

I had just bought my Delta 12” VS Lathe and she asked if I’d make her a stand for her chocolate truffles. Nothing like a deadline to get you motivated!

Wood is Walnut and Hard Maple with a poly finish. Trying to create the sphere was nerve-wracking for me as this was really my second project I’ve done on a lathe. Everything is bolted together with a threaded rod with a nut epoxied in the top stem and is easily taken apart.

Thanks for looking.

I absolutely love it. I love your aesthetic. It’s very minimalist and chic.
