Muddpuppy, that is SO cool! I love how adjusting them in an off-set stack makes the entire stand look so different. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Hey, this is incredible! Just what I was looking for and the instructions and tips are very generous of you to post.

Only one more question: when you say oil-based paint, would that be found near the regular latex paint? Or would I need to find this somewhere else?

Thanks!

I am so excited to have my hubby make me one of these and the fact that they nest for storage is awesome and exactly what I am looking for! Thank you so very much for sharing, I hope this gets stuck to the top of the cupcake forum, it's awesome!

It can be found at any paint store, I would think.

Oil-based paints are predominently used in kitchens and bathrooms because they are easy to scrub/clean in high-traffic areas that get steamy/greasy faster than in other parts of the house.

That's the idea, so it doesn't move from side to side when they are stacked.

That circle of silver screws that you see inside the upper box is actually the screws that hold the 4 horizontal wooden slats (on the top) in place for THAT box.



First of all, thank you for the instructions. It is so wonderful that you are willing to share your knowledge. My question is about the circle of screws. I'm guessing that you screwed the horizontal piece (shown in the bottom of the second pic) to the top of the box it would set on? Can you set up the boxes without screwing that down, so that you could change up the configuration of the boxes, like muddpuppy did? or do you need to make seperate boxes for the different configurations? Would the boxes shift around very much once set up if you didn't use the bottom piece to secure the box to the one below it?

Thanks again. I'm hoping to have DH make me some boxes for an upcoming wedding.

Anyone have an answer for my above question? I need to work on making these for an upcoming wedding and would like to know if you must use the extra piece to secure one box to the next?

Thanks

Thank you Helen for posting these instructions! I really appreciate it! My husband's friend made this for my first wedding order. The stand fit perfectly with the wedding decor and the entire presentation was just perfect. Thanks again!
