A dark stain would be gorgeous! What are you thinking on price for these?

It is beautiful. Tell me it isn't going to be as much as a Sarah?

 

I, too would like to get into making stands, and plateaus, but we need to clean the workshop. We have everything INCLUDING TWO KITCHEN SINKS, jammed in there. Every time my husband takes something down there, it winds up in the workshop. You literally can't walk. Let alone work. 

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Well for Sara's 14" natural wood it's $195. I am thinking $150 for this one. It is solid mahogany which is a very hardy and expensive wood. He hasn't decided what he is going to charge me to make the painted ones so I can't set a price. But they will be cheaper than hers. She has an established reputation.

I haven't read all the posts here, but I saw the leveler question and just wanted to throw this out there.  I have two that look just like the old wilton one, but with a serrated type of wire.  I've been looking for five years for these from a supplier. This past weekend at ICES I finally found them with PME, retail $7.99!!!!  It's a 12" but they also carry an 18" which looks much studier than the big wilton one.  I just thought I'd throw this out there as I have loved mine for 5 years now!

The leveler is on the back burner a couple of weeks while I catch up on other work...

For those having trouble with the less expensive cake levelers, what I have done in the past is to pull outward on the ends so that the blade stays straight and does not bend. I know this takes 2 hands so I would have my husband hold the cake while I cut or I would have the cake on the edge of the counter up against my stomach/apron amd then cut it. Works great for me.

I fall into the category of rarely making cakes, and just for friends & family. I always used dental floss and wooden dowels to level/torte. It took minimal measuring, and worked pretty well. I can't afford to buy a tool I will use once a year.

 

Anywho, good luck with your new tool & patent (and sorry if you already updated, I didn't read through all 6 pages of the post! hehe! )

 

Oh, and I am new to the site, though I have browsed many times & appreciate and enjoy everyone's wisdom and beautiful cakes! I am making my daughter's wedding cake for the 31st, and haven't made one in 15 years!!! I'm a bit nervous!

Try out the home depot, just make sure you have a look of confusion and some sassy lipstick!
